OPR General Plan Guidelines Update Workshop

Tahoe Truckee Airport Conference Center, 10356 Truckee Airport Road Truckee, CA 96161

The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) has been engaged in a thorough update of the General Plan Guidelines (GPG). OPR is statutorily required by Government Code Section 65040.2 to adopt and periodically revise State guidelines for the preparation and content of local general plans for all cities and counties in California. This 2017 edition is the first comprehensive update to the guidelines since 2003. Legislative changes, new technical advisories, guidance documents, and additional resources have been incorporated into this new GPG.

This workshop will explain the major changes in the guidelines, provide information on the update process and next steps, and answer questions about use of the new guidelines.
