Governor's Office of Planning and Research - General Plan Guidelines
Click here to download the the letter.
As the State of California’s primary document explaining the legal requirements of a general plan, the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) General Plan Guidelines has provided guidance on the development of general plans for almost 40 years. Throughout this time, planning law has become more complex, communities have evolved, technology has improved, and the challenges of planning for future growth and development have persisted. For the 2013 update to the General Plan Guidelines (GPG 2013), OPR is evaluating the best ways to provide policy guidance in a user-friendly, online format and will explore the feasibility of creating templates to reduce the time and cost of updating a general plan. We hope that GPG 2013 will be a resource for decision-makers, planners, and the public for the development and implementation of local general plans.
