Over the next two and a half years, the Existing Conditions Report, Land Use Alternatives Report, Draft General Plan, and related documents will be prepared. As the Draft General Plan and related documents are published, they will be posted to this page.
Draft Policy Sets
The first step in preparing each updated General Plan Element is the preparation of a draft Policy Set. Each draft Policy Set includes Goals, Policies, and Actions that represent the core of the associated General Plan Element. These Draft Policy Sets have been prepared for the review of the General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC). Based on input from the GPAC on each policy set, a draft General Plan Element will be prepared that incorporates the GPAC's recommendations. Each General Plan Element will include Goals, Policies, and Actions that will guide the City's decision-makers and will also include introductory pages explaining the purpose, intent, and scope of the respective element. The General Plan Elements will also include graphics, maps, and other items such as call-out boxes with definitions of key terms. Draft Policy Sets will be posted here when they are provided to the GPAC for review.
