Document Description
The General Plan update, “Marina 2045,” will serve as a long-term framework for future growth and development. Marina 2045 represents the community’s vision for the future and contains goals and policies upon which the City Council, Planning Commission, staff, and the entire community will base land use, development, and natural resource decisions. To provide a contemporary plan that will guide the community through the next 20 years, the General Plan update will reflect recent development decisions and changes in State law. The Plan will focus on creating a “complete community” and improving the quality of life for residents, measured infill development, and increasing jobs and housing opportunities citywide while balancing natural resource conservation. The vision statement for Marina 2045 is “Marina will grow into a complete and self-sufficient city with inviting neighborhoods, an active downtown, thriving commercial areas, a vibrant college district, and a strong local economy. This growth will be carefully balanced with an ongoing commitment to diversity, affordable housing, high quality of life, preservation of natural areas, and protection of the City’s rich military history. As a regional leader, Marina will actively shape the Monterey Peninsula’s sustainability efforts, innovative transportation solutions, and economic development prospects. The City will continue to prioritize the well-being of its residents through transparent decision-making and by providing high-quality public services, an interconnected network of parks and open spaces, a safe transportation network, and a range of housing options for all income levels."
