General Plan Update 2020


The Contra Costa County General Plan Update 2020 is a comprehensive review and update of the County's General Plan. It is anticipated that this process will begin in mid-2018 and the final document will be adopted in 2020. 

What is a General Plan?

State law requires each city and county in California to prepare and maintain a general plan. A jurisdiction's general plan serves as its "constitution" for decisions concerning land use planning and expresses a community's long-term vision for its future development. All decisions on planning matters (rezonings, subdivisions, use permits, etc.) must be consistent with the adopted general plan.
