The General Plan is the Town’s long-term blueprint or “constitution” for future growth and development. The General Plan represents the community’s vision for its future. This vision is expressed in narrative form with goals, policies and programs that address a wide range of topics, including land use, transportation, housing, public services and facilities, parks and recreation, economic development, environmental resources, conservation, noise, open space and safety. The General Plan provides a basis for land use decision-making and capital investments in public facilities and infrastructure. California state law requires each city and county to adopt a General Plan.
