Unified General Plan

The City's General Plan has been reformatted and reorganized to make it easier to find, compare, and update policies and programs. It does not change Council adopted policy; however many policies and programs have been renumbered for a more consistent format and appearance. Due to the document's large size, the chapters and large maps are included as separate files to make them easier to download and use. We hope you like the General Plan's new look and organization. For questions or help accessing the files, contact Community Development at (805) 781-7170
