Next up for General Plan Update: Land Use Element
As one of the seven mandated elements of the General Plan, the Land Use Element plays an important role in unifying the other elements of the plan by providing an overall policy context. It deals with the central issues of growth and the quality of life in the community by striking a balance among the social, economic, and environmental costs and benefits associated with growth.
Beginning this Monday, May 7th, and scheduled to continue during subsequent City Council meetings (5/14 and 6/4), discussions will be held as staff provides Council with recommendations and receives direction on the following six organizing themes of the Land Use Element: General Principles, Bay and Mountain Setting, Nature and Character of Development, Open Space and Open Areas, Streets, and Subdivision Patterns. So if you've ever been curious or wanted to gain more information about any of the above areas, come on down to the Community Center this coming Monday, at 7:30 p.m.!
