Welcome to the Community Plan Update Program!
The Planning Department is updating land use plans for several community plan areas as part of an ongoing program to ensure that these plans effectively guide growth and development in the City’s neighborhoods.
Community Plans guide the physical development of neighborhoods by establishing the goals and policies for land use. Together, the City's 35 Community Plans comprise the City's General Plan Land Use Element, one of the state-required elements required to be updated preiodically. While the General Plan sets out a long-range vision and guide to future development, the 35 Community Plans provide the specific, neighborhood-level detail, relevant policies, and implementation strategies necessary to achieve the General Plan objectives.
