General Plan Update

The City of Elk Grove's General Plan lays out the community vision for the future of the City. It is the primary governing document that determines future jobs, housing, and growth in our community.  Since the current General Plan was adopted in 2003, the City has grown and changed considerably.

Beginning in July 2015, the City engaged the community, through a series of events and online workshops, to arrive at a draft plan for the future. Details about these events can be found on the Resources page.

Draft General Plan Now Available
On July 27, 2018, the City released the draft General Plan for public review and comment.  The draft General Plan is accompanied by the Draft Environmental Impact Report, draft Climate Action Plan update, and draft Transportation Analysis Guidelines.  All of these materials are available online on the Documents page, or in hard copy at City Hall and at area libraries (Elk Grove and Franklin branches).  See the Documents page for more information.
