On Track to 2040: General Plan 4-Year Review
4 Year ReviewThe Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan establishes a four year review cycle, providing opportunity to evaluate the City’s achievement of key goals and mid-course adjustments to the General Plan. This work will be done through open, public meetings of the Envision San Jose 2040 Task Force and City Council.

Envision San Jose 2040 Task Force

The Envision San Jose 2040 Task Force was created in 2007 to assist staff with the update of the City’s General Plan. This update process ended in 2011 and resulted in the Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan

In November 2015, the Envision San Jose 2040 Task Force reconvened many of the same key community stakeholders and organizations; visit the Task Force Members page to see the membership. The Task Force evaluated the City’s achievement of planned job goals, implementation of the Urban Village concept, environmental indicators, and affordable housing needs; and made recommendations to City Council on mid-course adjustments to the Plan. Task Force meetings were held from November 2015 to April 2016.

Task Force Meetings

At the conclusion of the final 4-Year Review Task Force meeting in April 2016, the Task Force approved a set of recommendations for the City Council to consider regarding changes to the Envision San José 2040 General Plan. These recommendations are included in the April 7, 2016 Meeting Synopsis. Currently, the City’s environmental consultant is conducting an environmental analysis of the Task Force’s recommended amendments. This environmental review process will be completed in the early fall. Staff is bringing the 4-Year Review recommendations to Planning Commission on November 16, 2016 and to City Council Hearings on December 13, 2016
