Welcome to the City of Brentwood General Plan Update website. This website provides up-to-date information on the General Plan Update process. As the General Plan documents are prepared, they will be placed on this site. Information regarding upcoming workshops and meetings will be posted to this site and meeting materials will also be placed on this website.
The purpose of the Land Use Alternatives Report is to provide the City with a resource tool to examine different possible approaches to accommodate future development, economic growth, maintain fiscal sustainability, and ensure adequate protection of resources and open space. This report presents three different Land Use Map alternatives. An analysis of the land use, circulation, fiscal sustainability, economic development, and public services and infrastructure effects relative to each alternative is provided. This report is accompanied by a detailed fiscal analysis that addresses long-range fiscal impacts in terms of the cost to provide services to projected land uses and growth versus the revenues generated under each alternative.
This report will be used by the community at-large, the General Plan Update Working Group, the Planning Commission, and ultimately the City Council to select a preferred Land Use Map, which will be included in the Draft General Plan that is prepared and circulated for public review.
Brentwood's General Plan was adopted in 1993. In 2001, the Growth Management, Land Use, and Circulation Elements were updated to address Brentwood's growth potential and reflect the community's priorities. The Housing Element was updated in 2005 and is currently being updated in response to the requirements of State law.
The General Plan is an important planning tool and is required by State law to be updated from time to time. This comprehensive update will ensure that information in the General Plan is current and that the General Plan's goals, action items, and land use plans are consistent with the community's vision for Brentwood's future. The General Plan Update will take approximately two years, with an anticipated completion date of late summer 2014. Throughout the update process, community involvement is welcomed and encouraged. Workshops and meetings will be held on a regular basis and the public will be invited to comment on the draft General Plan elements and the environmental impact report.
