General Plan Implementation Annual Progress Reports (APR)Planning Central

The City annually reports on the status of implementing General Plan policies and implementation actions to ensure that the General Plan is being implemented effectively and towards achievement of its Vision. The City previously reported on General Plan implementation through the annual General Plan Implementation and Adaptive Management Program (AMP) Report.

Recent amendments to State law now require the City to present an annual report on the status of the General Plan and progress in its implementation (known as the General Plan Annual Progress Report [APR]) to City Council for its review and acceptance and to submit the General Plan APR to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research and the State Housing and Community Development Department by April 1. State law further requires a separate Housing Element APR that describes the community’s progress toward implementing the Housing Element. To view the Housing Element APR, click here

The new 2020 General Plan APR replaces the General Plan AMP Report and, in compliance with state guidelines, includes broader reporting on calendar year actions that implement the General Plan. The General Plan APR was presented to City Council on March 30, 2021.  Implementation priorities and course corrections (formerly the “Adaptive Management” component of the report) will be discussed as part of the Community Development Department budget and with the Planning Commission as needed.
