General Plan

The General Plan is the primary tool for guiding future development and character of the city over the next 20 years. State law requires the city to update its General Plan every 10 years.

Update to the 2001 General Plan

Based on City Council direction on December 1, 2016, Long Range Planning staff will be updating the 2001 General Plan to incorporate the two new State-mandated elements (energy and neighborhood preservation and revitalization); a new, community created Arts, Culture, and Creative Community element; and any necessary changes to the plan to clean up maps and update existing conditions. The update to the plan will not include a new Desert Rural Neighborhoods Land Use Category. All land use categories in the 2001 plan will remain.
