The City of Chico has released the new 2030 General Plan to the public for review and comment. Updated approximately every 20 years, the General Plan is a “statement of the community’s priorities to guide public decision making” by providing “...a comprehensive, long-range and internally consistent policy framework for the growth and preservation of Chico”.
New to the General Plan is a Chapter dedicated entirely towards the sustainable growth and development of Chico. This chapter addresses the ways Chico can efficiently improve the environment, economy and social equity in Chico over the next 20 years. The inclusion of an entire chapter on Sustainability marks a milestone in the City of Chico’s dedication to responsible development. By including Sustainable measures in the future development of Chico, the City establishes an innovative and leading role amongst Northern California communities.
