SUBJECT:

GENERAL PLAN UPDATE AND PRESENTATION OF THE PREFERRED PLAN (CITY COUNCIL)

I. SUMMARY

During the public participation process for the Preferred Plan, the Planning Division provided a comment period to the community from September 2, 2020 to October 25, 2020.

Stakeholders were also encouraged to write hard copy letters and place telephone calls to the Planning Division to share their comments.
On December 1, 2020, staff presented the Preferred Plan and shared community input with the City Council.
