Charting Progress to 2040

Posted on February 3, 2017


Do you have an interest in what San Rafael looks like in 2040? Then you should be sure to participate in our General Plan process! The City’s current General Plan 2020 has been in place since 2004 and as we approach 2020, is nearing the end of its useful life.  At their Monday, February 6 meeting, the City Council will consider the draft work program for the new General Plan 2040, which would guide the City for the next 20 years. This is the first step in what will be a multi-year, comprehensive planning process, taking up to three years to complete.
