The General Plan and Development Code Update is a monumental opportunity to shape the future of Arroyo Grande. Through the Update process, the City and consulting team (Project Team), with input from the public and stakeholders will consider many new, goals and policies for existing elements such as housing, economic development, traffic and circulation, safety, and more to ensure Arroyo Grande is positioned to achieve its vision for the future. The update will also introduce new topics such as environmental justice and policies to encourage a healthy community.

As this project progresses, this website will be your primary source for information related to the General Plan and Development Code Update.

Community Survey - Draft Vision and Guiding Principles

The City of Arroyo Grande has drafted options for the citywide vision statement and guiding principles that will help guide the development and direction of the updated General Plan's goals, policies, and programs. Now, the City needs your help to select which option best represents your vision for Arroyo Grande! 

The draft vision statement and guiding principles options were developed based on common themes, ideas, words, and phrases expressed by community members since the start of the project. This feedback will be presented to the Planning Commission and City Council for consideration when selecting a final citywide vision statement and supporting guiding principles.
