After 2 ½ years and 26 public meetings, the Town has released the update to the 2010 General Plan, extending the horizon year for the plan out to the year 2030.
California cities are required by State Law to have a general plan, which acts as a blueprint for future growth and development. Danville's general plan includes policies that address land use, housing, circulation and resource management, with the goal of maintaining the history and character of the Town.
Key features include:
- Inclusion of a new Sustainability Action Plan which includes policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to global climate change;
- Identification of opportunity sites and special concern areas that may be considered for land use changes to implement the adopted Housing Element or address other local needs;
- A comprehensive environmental review related to any future changes to be incorporated into the 2030 General Plan.
The draft 2030 General Plan will be the subject of public hearings to be held before the Town Planning Commission and Town Council, beginning in November 2012. The draft General Plan, Sustainability Action Plan and Environmental Impact Report are available for viewing on the Town's website.
"This General Plan update carries forward the careful planning and vision established in the Town's first General Plan" said Town Manager Joe Calabrigo. "Danville values its' unique history, distinctive charm and great beauty. It's why many people have chosen to call Danville home".
