General Plan Update 2035
The City is in the process of updating its General Plan with the help of Professor lead City and Regional Planning 2nd year Master students from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. The last General Plan was adopted in 1998 and has served the City well over the years. It is mandated by the State that a General Plan be updated. The previous plan will be used as a reference but will be expanded to meet the current needs of the community and new government requirements. To get involved in the process please click here.
