The General Plan Update process consists of eight main tasks. Here is the project status for each:
|1. Project Initiation and Community Involvement Strategy||Complete|
|2. Issue Identification and Key Strategies||Complete|
|3. Existing Conditions, Trends, and Opportunities Assessment||Complete|
|5. Preferred Plan and Key Goals||Complete|
|6. Draft General Plan and Climate Action Plan||Underway|
|7. Draft and Final General Plan EIR||Not Begun|
|8. Hearings and Adoption||Not Begun|
At each stage, there are opportunities for community involvement and input. Community workshops are held for many tasks, and information about the General Plan will be available at venues and events around town. A General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) meets regularly to discuss issues and advise decision-makers; all are welcome to attend GPAC meetings. Study sessions of the City Council and the Planning Commission, focusing specifically on the General Plan Update process, are held periodically and are also open to the public. Additionally, questions or comments about the plan and process are welcome at any time. Please see the Project Schedule for more information on the project timeline.
What We're Working on Now:
General Plan Policies
We're working on drafting policies for each of the General Plan elements. At their June 21, August 16 and September 13 meetings, the GPAC reviewed the draft policies for Land Use and Economic Development, Resource Conservation, Public Facilities and Services, Safety, Community Health and Sustainability, and Circulation.
Revisions to these policies based on community input will be discussed at the November 29, 2018 meeting.
This website will serve as your one-stop shop for information about Diamond Bar’s General Plan Update project. This site provides up-to-date information, including a description of the project, schedule, studies and presentations, public participation and input opportunities, and contact information.
We invite you to take a look around and share your vision for the future of Diamond Bar. Please check back often for updates on the planning process, announcements of upcoming meetings and other ways to participate, and to review draft documents.
