A general plan is the local government’s long-term blueprint for the community’s vision of future growth. OPR is statutorily required by Government Code Section 65040.2 to adopt and periodically revise the State General Plan Guidelines (GPG) for the preparation and content of general plans for all cities and counties in California.This 2017 General Plan Guidelines edition is the first comprehensive update to the guidelines since 2003. The GPG serves as the “how to” resource for drafting a general plan. The 2017 version includes legislative changes, new guidance, policy recommendations, external links to resource documents, and additional resources.
OPR is conducting free workshops around the state to update communities on the new General Plan Guidelines. Workshops will examine major changes and updates, explain next steps, and answer questions communities may have about using the new Guidelines.
