General Plan 2040

City Council to Consider Updated Study Areas

On Monday, October 7, 2019, the City Council will consider changes to the General Plan study area boundaries initially accepted on August 19, 2019.  Following additional input from the community, the Council will consider clarifying the goals of the upcoming alternatives process and eliminating one- and two- family residentially zoned parcels citywide from the areas to be studied for potential change.

The General Plan is the document that guides how the City will look, feel, and change over the next 20 years. General Plan study areas are those areas that are most likely to change over the next 20 years. Those changes could be new development, new bike or pedestrian amenities, traffic improvements, infrastructure upgrades, street beautification, or other changes. Identifying study areas is the first step in the process to envision, evaluate, and choose among future alternative scenarios.

Meeting materials will be posted here no later than Friday, October 4.
