The current General Plan is eight years old and many things have changed:

  1. The city and adjacent neighborhoods have grown and matured.
  2. New State and Federal laws require we comply with new mandates for:
    • Housing
    • Circulation and “Complete Streets”
    • Air Quality
    • Energy Conservation
    • Local Coastal Plans
  3. The City Council wants to continue to strengthen the City’s future economic development posture.
  4. The Green City Initiative launched in 2010 needs to be implemented.

These requirements are aiming us at updating the General Plan with particular focus on:

  1. Affordable housing policies.
  2. Proceeding to enhance our streets to better accommodate pedestrians, bicycles, joggers, neighborhood electric vehicles, seniors, handicapped, and safe routes to schools.
  3. Reduce vehicle miles traveled within the city
  4. Reduce energy and water consumption
  5. Work with the County of Orange and Coastal Commission to refine our land use policies for the south western edge of the city along the wilderness park.
  6. Encourage more mixed use in the city core areas.
  7. Campaign for attracting clean high tech industries.
  8. Implement a variety of “living green” initiatives through City leadership and educating voluntary action.
