Why is the land use designation for my property proposed to change?

Land use changes are being proposed as part of an update to the Town’s General Plan.  The General Plan sets forth a vision for future growth and development of the community. In certain areas of town - mostly along Old Redwood Highway, Shiloh Road (east of Highway 101), and the northern and eastern edges of town –  the General Plan envisions changes to the current uses in these areas.  The envisioned changes are based on input received from the community over the course of the past three years during a series of workshops and public hearings that focused on the General Plan update.  The land use changes being proposed will serve to guide new development in these areas towards the uses that the General Plan envisions for the future.
