What is a General Plan?
State law requires each city and county in California to prepare and maintain a general plan. A jurisdiction's general plan serves as its "constitution" for decisions concerning land use planning and expresses a community's long-term vision for its future development. All decisions on planning matters (rezonings, subdivisions, use permits, etc.) must be consistent with the adopted general plan.
