Section 65400 of the Government Code requires that the General Plan Annual Report be presented each year to the local legislative body for its review and acceptance.  This report describes the City’s progress in implementing its General Plan and Housing Element during the previous 2016 calendar year. Following review, the report is required to be sent to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) and the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).


On July 6, 2010, the City Council adopted Envision 2025, a comprehensive update to the City's General Plan. The Housing Element was adopted by the City Council on October 1, 2013, and certified by HCD on November 30, 2013. Staff has reviewed the General Plan and 2013-2021 Housing Element to determine the status of their implementation for the 2016 calendar year in accordance with the State’s guidelines.  The Planning Commission reviewed the attached 2016 General Plan Annual Report at the April 17, 2017 Planning Commission meeting, and recommended the City Council receive and file the report.



Since the General Plan was updated in 2010, staff from several departments continue to monitor the  goals, policies, and actions identified in the document.  In doing so, staff has developed an Implementation Program Table for tracking the status of the adopted General Plan. The Implementation Program Table (Exhibit A to the General Plan Annual Report) incorporates the goals and action statements from the General Plan that have been addressed or were in the process of completion in 2016.  During the 2016 calendar year, the City continued to implement many General Plan goals and policies through ongoing City programs, private development, and capital improvement projects. Exhibit B of the report summarizes the progress made in 2016 towards meeting the goals and objectives of the City’s 2013-2021 Housing Element. In 2016, the City  continued to implement the Housing Element and added to the region’s supply of affordable housing through the multiple housing programs offered by the City.
