City of Oceanside General Plan Update Project Alternatives

The Chamber has been in close touch with City leaders on Oceanside’s General Plan Update (GPU). Most recently, The GPU project team presented the Alternatives Report describing three land use and development alternatives for GPU Phase 2 to the Planning Commission and will be going back to the Commission with more input on April 25th. Reflecting different distributions of future housing and employment growth, the project alternatives are meant to foster further community engagement on the General Plan Update while achieving compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The consideration of project alternatives will lead to the selection of a preferred plan for GPU Phase 2. The preferred plan will then be summarized in a brief Land Use and Mobility Plan that will be shared with the community and decision-makers. The plan can be viewed at www.OnwardOceanside.com. Please direct questions and comments on project alternatives to Principal Planner Russ Cunningham at rcunningham@oceansideca.org or (760) 435-3525.
