City Council to “Preview” New General Plan on July 20


The Albany City Council will receive a briefing on the 2035 General Plan at their regular meeting on July 20, 2015. Members of the public are encouraged to attend and may comment on the item. The Council will receive a short presentation on the status of the project and the schedule for its completion.   The presentation will include highlights from seven chapters—or “elements”—of the Plan, including Land Use, Transportation, Conservation and Sustainability, Parks and Open Space, Environmental Hazards, Community Services and Facilities, and Waterfront. A staff report, including the 100-page “Compendium of Policies” will be posted to this website prior to the meeting time.  The meeting will take place in the Albany City Hall Council Chambers at 1000 San Pablo Avenue at 7:00 PM.
