General Plan Update
Project Description
The City of East Palo Alto is updating the 1999 General Plan and Zoning Ordinance. Generously funded by the Strategic Growth Council, the general plan update targets improving the health of city residents and is therefore referred to as a "Targeted General Plan." Through land use policies and measures that are chosen by city residents, and closely aligned with 26 indicators that are associated with public health, the plan will be accompanied by a comprehensive revision of the zoning ordinance to implement the resident’s vision.

More information about the update is available at: www.vista2035epa.org

In the fall of 2012, the City of East Palo Alto selected Raimi + Associates to engage the community and refine the city’s vision, the General Plan. Each city and county adopts and updates their General Plan to guide the growth and land development of their community, for both the current period and the long term. The General Plan is the foundation for establishing goals, purposes, zoning and activities allowed on each land parcel to provide compatibility and continuity to the entire region as well as each individual neighborhood.
