Pleasant Hill General Plan
The State of California allows cities to regulate land use planning, zoning, subdivision, and building on private property to promote the health, safety, and welfare of the general public. Each city is required to prepare and adopt a comprehensive, long-term General Plan for the physical development of the community. The General Plan is intended to guide local decision-making regarding future growth and expresses community goals about the future distribution and character of land uses and activities, both public and private. The General Plan is a long-term document, establishing development policies to serve as the basis for day-to-day land use decision-making within an approximate 20-year time frame.
