The City is currently conducting a comprehensive update to the City’s Land Use Plan/Map and three (3) General Plan Elements: Land Use; Conservation, Recreation and Parks, Open Space; and Environmental Hazards/Natural Hazards (which will become the Noise and Safety Elements) to effectively address growth and change, reflect the current goals and values of the community, respond to new laws, ensure the City meets requirements to be eligible for Federal and State funding, and craft goals and policies that allow the General Plan to remain a relevant “living” policy document.

The City Council formed a 27-member General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC), to provide input to help shape updates to land use, safety, noise and open space goals and policies in the General Plan, which guides the City’s land use direction for the next 20-25 years. Since early 2017, the Committee has been learning about and discussing various planning issues facing the City now and in the future related to population growth, jobs, housing and market demand and has reached consensus on a Draft Land Use Plan/Map.  

The Virtual Community Meeting was held on April 7, 2021 that provided the community with an opportunity to learn more about the proposed changes to the City’s Land Use Plan/Map, the overall General Plan update, ask questions of project team members, and provide input, feedback, and comments on the GPAC’s Draft Land Use Plan/Map. Although the focus of the meeting will be to receive the communities comments on the draft land use plan/map, the meeting will include a brief introduction and background remarks to include the purpose of a general plan, overview of the process to date, issues and opportunities facing the City in the next twenty years, the general plan draft vision and guiding principles, and recent changes in State Housing Laws that have impacted GPAC’s final draft land use plan/map.

A formal presentation began at 6:30 PM and lasted approximately 45 minutes. The GPAC’s Draft Land Use Plan/Map, recent changes in State Housing Law, and the City’s recent assignment of its Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) from SCAG were the focus of the presentation. Following the presentation there was a question and answer period.

The Planning Commission then discussed the recommended plan at their virtual meeting on April 15th, and provided their feedback. 

The City Council then began their consideration on April 20th, and will continue their discussions at their May 4th, May 11th, and May 18th meetings. If you would like to submit a written comment for the City Council to consider, you may email your comment to
