Community Plan Updates

Community plans are a part of the City's General Plan Land Use and Community Planning Element. Community plans build upon the more general citywide policies established in the General Plan with policy recommendations that apply at the community and neighborhood level. Community plan updates will ensure consistency between the General Plan and community's land use policies and infrastructure strategies.
