General Plan 4-Year Review Cycle #1

General Plan Four-Year Review Cycle #1 (2015/2016)

The 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 is done through open, public meetings of the Envision San Jose 2040 Task Force and City Council. The first cycle of the four-year review occurred from November 2015 to April 2016.

In April 2016, the Envision San José 2040 Task Force approved a final set of recommendations for the City Council to consider.  The recommendations and associated General Plan Amendments were heard by the Planning Commission on November 16, 2016, and approved by the City Council on December 13, 2016.  The Staff Report and other related documents are available on the December 13, 2016 City Council Meeting agenda (see Item 10.1)
