The Turlock City Council and Planning Commission will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, November 8, 2011, starting at 5pm at Turlock City Hall to discuss the Public Review Draft General Plan.
The City of Turlock has spent nearly three years gathering input and the information needed to update our communities General Plan. The Turlock City Council established the following vision statement back in 2009 for the General Plan: "Turlock will grow sensibly and compactly, maintaining its small town feel, while enhancing quality of life, meeting housing needs, and providing high quality jobs and recreation opportunities for its diverse population."
The General Plan is meant to establish a long range vision for how the city will grow and change over the next 20 years by providing direction for physical and economic development and infrastructure improvements. An overview of eight General Plan themes was reviewed at a public meeting on October 20, 2011, to give the big pieces and graphics of the plan.
General Plan themes included: 1) Agriculture and Growth Management, 2) Variety of Housing Types, 3) Business Attraction and Jobs, 4) Circulation System, 5) Sustainable Development, 6) Infill and Revitalization, 7) New Master Plan Areas and 8) Recreation and Culture.
Presentation boards were shown with each of these key themes and can be found at the General Plan Update website: http://www.gpupdate.turlock.ca.us/PDFs/Workshop_Boards_web.pdf
