Corona’s General Plan Update
Corona is embarking on a technical update of its General Plan. The General Plan is a long-range land use planning document that celebrates and preserves the unique qualities that make Corona a desirable place to live, work and recreate while accommodating our changing world. The City’s General Plan is the blueprint that ties together its history and future.
What is a General Plan?
A General Plan is a long-range policy and planning document that guides the physical development and resource management of the City. Specifically, it establishes goals and policy direction to ensure that a high quality of life is preserved and enhanced for Corona residents, businesses, and visitors. State law requires every city and county to adopt a General Plan to layout the jurisdictions’ future—looking ahead 20 years or more.
Why update the General Plan?
As a matter of practice and pursuant to the State’s General Plan laws, Corona has routinely updated its General Plan. The last comprehensive update was completed in 2004. Although the 2004 update established the Vision for the build-out of the City, which will not change with this effort, interim growth has occurred, new laws have been passed, and new planning tools and strategies have since been developed. These changes require a re-evaluation of the Plan to ensure quality of life, respond to the new laws, and to effectively address growth and change ensuring that the vision and value of Corona remains relevant.
