General Plan Guiding Principles to be Considered by City Council

SUISUN CITY, Calif. - On Tuesday (Aug. 17), the Suisun City Council will consider confirming guiding principles for the update to the City's General Plan.

The City Council meets at 7 p.m. in Suisun City Hall, 701 Civic Center Blvd.

Many jurisdictions throughout California have chosen to establish guiding principles at the beginning of their General Plan Update process to assist in the development of the General Plan.

The creation of such principles is usually followed by the development of (or confirmation of) goals, objectives and implementation measures in the final General Plan. The vision of the plan is “what” you want to accomplish, while the guiding principles are “how” you would accomplish that vision.

The General Plan is the main community planning document required for every community in California. It is designed to outline acceptable uses for every section of the city to ensure orderly development of homes, businesses, parks, schools, transportation and other community facilities.
