The General Plan is the foundation upon which all land use decisions are to be based. The General Plan is a comprehensive informational and planning guide established by State law to provide a framework for making informed decisions about the future of the community. The Plan identifies the community's land use, circulation, environmental, economic and social goals and policies as they relate to land use and development. The General Plan and supporting environmental documentation identify concerns and issues important to the community, analyze them, and establish goals, policies, and program implementation measures that resolve or effectively address these issues. It also provides the basis for a rational nexus to support development, mitigation measures and exactions; special studies and performance programs are also integral parts of the goals, policies, programs that assure effective implementation of the General Plan.
