On Monday, August 24, 2020, the Santa Ana Planning Commission will be holding a Study Session to discuss some of the major policy changes proposed in the Draft General Plan.  Made available for public review on August, 3, 2020, Santa Ana’s “Golden City Beyond: A Shared Vision” General Plan will guide the City’s development and conservation for the next 25 years through 2045. The update will provide long-term policy direction and communicate the vision, values, and goals for Santa Ana’s physical development, fiscal and environmental sustainability, and overall quality of life.   Building on the Draft Policy Framework (December 2018) and outreach conducted in 2019 and 2020, the August 2020 Public Review Draft General Plan documents now include mapping, tables, and updated policies.

The Draft General Plan Land Use Element has identified five key areas for potential urban and transit-oriented development opportunities to encourage pedestrian, bicycle, and transit travel to improve air quality. These areas propose a mixture of uses including new housing, community-serving commercial, and employment areas accessible to all residents.  In addition, the Draft General Plan includes policies and potential actions to address the topic of environmental justice in our disadvantaged communities.
