Take the survey: Land Use Alternatives (Available in English and Spanish)

Take the General Plan's Land Use Alternatives Survey

It's Live! Take the General Plan's Land Use Alternatives survey, open now through late October:

This is a critical part of the General Plan update process, since the land use map directs the future pattern of development in the City. The land use alternatives are being developed to implement the Vision endorsed by the City Council and address issues of concern in the community, particularly affordable housing and economic growth.

We value your ideas and encourage all to take the survey and attend upcoming workshops or meetings to learn more about the General Plan. For details, please visit
