City of Gardena
Arrow City of Opportunity
Arrow Safe and attractive place to live, work and play
Arrow Community that values ethnic and cultural diversity
Arrow Strong and diverse economic base

Arrow What is a General Plan?

Every city and county in California is required by state law to prepare and maintain a planning document called a General Plan. The general plan is the long range "blueprint" for a jurisdiction and guides development decisions, identifies long-term objectives for the next 15-20 years and contains policies and actions to help achieve community goals over the period of time. The general plan addresses all aspects of growth and development and includes topics such as land use, housing, economic development, circulation, safety, parks and recreation, and public facilities.

In summary, the General Plan serves to:

Articulate a 15-20 year vision or picture for the future growth of the City;
Identify the City's land use, circulation, housing, environmental, economic, and social goals, policies and actions; and
Provide direction in the planning and evalution of future development and resource decisions.
