In spring of 2020, the City of Rancho Cucamonga (the City) embarked on an exciting multi-year planning effort to bring the community together to talk about the future and update its General Plan. The community-based process and eventual plan, PlanRC, will set a long-term vision and provide policy direction and guidance to residents, City staff, decision-makers, and the broader community. In November 2020, the City hosted a series of community discussions that included virtual presentations, live polling, and conversations about how and where Rancho Cucamonga should grow and improve over the next 20 years.
Nine virtual community discussions and an online survey were hosted in November to explore long term land use ideas. Six sessions were promoted with the general public, one of which was specifically held for teens and youth, and another of which was specifically held for Spanish speakers. Three additional focused meetings were also held with the Healthy RC Steering Committee, NAIOP (Commercial Real Estate Development Association), and the Chamber of Commerce. Nearly 170 people engaged in the online and virtual conversations. The interactive, community discussions explored the details of three future planning options to consider and eventually a preferred scenario was identified.
The next phase of the PlanRC process will be conducted through the Summer and Winter of 2021. This phase will focus on policy and plan development solutions to address a range of topics covered in the General Plan.
