General Plan Update

On October 1, 2019, the City of Placentia City Council adopted a new, updated General Plan, a key planning document that will shape the future of your community by providing direction for growth and change in Placentia. The General Plan includes goals, policies and implementation actions addressing important community needs ranging from land use and mobility, to public safety. Some of the newer General Plan elements include Economic Development, Sustainability and Health and Wellness.

Every city in California has a General Plan. The updated General Plan comprehensively addresses the community’s priorities and establishes a vision for the next 25 years. The General Plan will include goals, policies, and implementation actions addressing several topics. Some of these topics are required by state law and others will be included based upon input from the community.
