What is the General Plan Update?
The City of Irvine is updating its General Plan, a state-required document representing the long-range vision of the City. The purpose of the update is to build upon longstanding objectives that define Irvine and for the City Council to consider changes as needed. The update will serve as the City’s policy blueprint for the future. It will update community goals and public policy direction to ensure Irvine’s high quality of life is preserved and enhanced as the City builds out and matures. No changes to existing land uses or allowable development intensities are proposed. This update will also incorporate changes required by state law.
What is the Status of the Update?
The City conducted extensive public outreach to establish the preliminary General Plan Planning Framework and to identify major goals and topics for consideration in the update. City staff presented the results of the second outreach survey and Planning Framework developed for the General Plan Comprehensive Update project to City Commissions throughout Spring 2018. The City Council is scheduled to receive this presentation at its regular meeting on Aug. 14, 2018 The City Council meeting begins at 5 p.m. in the Conference and Training Center at Irvine City Hall located at 1 Civic Center Plaza (at Harvard Avenue and Alton Parkway).
