In developing a new General Plan 2035, the current 1996 General Plan provides a starting point. City staff have prepared an evaluation for each of the 266 policies and 454 programs contained in the current General Plan. This includes information on how each program or policy has been implemented (or not) over the past 18 years, what impediments prevented full implementation, and then a staff recommendation on whether the policy or program should be retained, revised or deleted. To simplify the review and provide a basis for initial discussion, staff categorized each policy/program into color coded tiers:

 



Tier 1: Policies that are high priority; programs that should be implemented

within 5 years.

 

Tier 2: Policies that are lower priority; programs that should be implemented

in years 5-20.

 

Tier 3: Policies and programs that have lower relative priority and will not be

included in the new General Plan.

 

Tier 4: Policies or programs that have been fully implemented and will not be

included in the new General Plan.


The policy and program evaluation for each of the General Plan Chapters were reviewed by various appointed Boards and Commissions (including the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission, the Economic Development Advisory Commission, the Design Review Commission, the Recreation, Cultural & Community Service Advisory Commission, and the Planning Commission),  which considered public input and provided feedback to staff.  All comments were considered by the City Council, which provided staff with direction on policies and programs to incorporate into the new General Plan.
