A general plan is a comprehensive, long range and internally consistent statement of a city's development and preservation policies.  It sums up the City's philosophy of growth and preservation, highlights what is important to the community, and prescribes where different kinds of development should go.  State law requires that cities prepare general plans and regularly review and update them.  The preparation of the draft GP 2030 was a community based process led by a 17 member General Plan Advisory Committee.
