Past Events

City Council Presentation: Tuesday March 19th, 6:30 PM, City Hall

At their regularly scheduled meeting on March 19, 2019, the City Council reviewed the Land Use Themes Report, discussed the five focus areas considered in the Report, and considered the feedback on these Focus Areas provided by the General Plan Advisory Committee. The meeting agenda is available on the City's Agenda Management Center.  The City Council provided City Staff and the Consultant team with direction on what land uses should be reflected on the Benchmark Plan, which will be thoroughly analyzed in an Environmental Impact Report. Their direction is summarized here: Draft Benchmark Plan Input: City Council Focus Area Discussion.

Preparation of the Benchmark Plan does not represent final policy direction or approval of a new land use map. The Benchmark Plan, General Plan Policy Document, and Environmental Impact Report will be presented to Planning Commission and City Council through a series of public hearings in late 2019/early 2020. As part of this public review process, the City Council can make changes to the Benchmark Plan, if desired. The City’s existing General Plan Land Use Map remains fully applicable until such time as a new General Plan is adopted by the City Council.
