Planning Commission to Host General Plan Workshop
Posted: 04 Aug 2010 11:31 AM PDT
Residents invited to give input on future of Suisun City
SUISUN CITY - The Suisun City Planning Commission will hold a workshop at 7 p.m. Tuesday Aug. 10, 2010, on the comprehensive update of the City's General Plan.
The focus of the workshop, which will be held at City Hall, is to discuss the General Plan Update status and upcoming milestones, and to continue soliciting input and comments from Suisun City residents.
It is the intention of the Planning Commission to hold periodic workshops on the General Plan as the update process continues over the next 12-18 months.
The General Plan is the main community planning document required for every community in California. It is designed to outline acceptable uses for every section of the city to ensure orderly development of homes, businesses, parks, schools, transportation and other community facilities.
State law requires that a city’s General Plan be updated periodically so it remains an accurate reflection of the city’s existing and intended development, and the environmental impacts of planned growth. It guides decision making in the community regarding city goals.
Since Suisun City’s General Plan was last updated, state law changed to require that issues such as climate change and green house gas reduction be considered when planning future development.
In April 2010, the Suisun City Council approved a contract with AECOM to assist city planners update the General Plan.
