Kern Council of Governments
The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research has been engaged in an extensive update to the General Plan Guidelines, informed by extensive outreach, engagement, and collaboration with state agencies and stakeholders. A General Plan is the local government’s long-term blueprint for the community’s vision of future growth. OPR is responsible for updating the General Plan Guidelines – the “how to” resource for drafting a general plan. OPR also monitors general plan implementation with annual progress reports from cities and counties, and grants general plan extensions for qualified cities and counties.
A public draft of the update to the General Plan Guidelines for the State of California is available here. This comprehensive update seeks to create a suite of tools for planners, practitioners, and the general public to help update local general plans. OPR will be holding multiple community outreach events throughout California during the public comment period for the draft GPG update. Planners, practitioners, and community members are invited to attend and learn about the updated guidelines, ask questions, and share their feedback. Check back for upcoming dates, or join our email list to be informed when events are scheduled.
