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.

Preliminary Preferred Plan

At their January 30, 2018 joint session, the Planning Commission and City Council reviewed the three land use alternatives and selected a preferred alternative.

Joint Meeting Minutes

We're now working on fleshing out the draft land use map and drafting key guiding policies for the mixed use areas based on their recommendations. The draft map and policies will be discussed at the GPAC meeting on April 19, 2018.
