Document Description
The City of Ventura General Plan articulates the long-term shared community vision for the preservation, enhancement and improvement of the city. It is a long-range plan that directs decision making and establishes rules and standards for city improvements and new development. The Plan reflects the community's vision for the future and is intended to provide direction through the year 2050. The last comprehensive General Plan was completed in 2005.

The 2050 General Plan Update will provide the context to effectively plan and manage the City of Ventura based on an updated set of goals, policies, and implementation actions that reflect the values and aspirations for the future expressed by the community. Additionally, the update will equip the City of Ventura with a policy framework to responsibly manage future projects and have the capacity to accommodate the growth and development anticipated to occur in the city for the next 25 years.
