On March 5, 2018, the City Council will consider a resolution approving a detailed work program for the General Plan Update, including descriptions of each task to be performed, and a project budget and schedule. The 90-page work program outlines 15 tasks and over 100 sub-tasks to be completed over a three-year period, culminating with adoption of General Plan 2040. It includes a Community Engagement Strategy, along with detailed provisions for traffic modeling, environmental review, land use analysis, and policy development. Specific milestones and deliverables are identified for each task. The project budget includes an appropriation of roughly $1.1 million for consulting services, to be drawn from an existing fund set up a decade ago to maintain and implement the General Plan. Work on the General Plan is already underway and is expected to continue for the next two years.
