Vallejoans have begun drafting Guiding Principles to describe our shared values and define the kind of community we want to be. The following principles were written recently by workshop participants. How would you prioritize these statements? What would you add to the list?
The City of Vallejo officially launched the Planning Initiatives Project, a community-wide planning effort, on Wednesday, March 5, beginning with a series of workshops to establish Guiding Principles for the project. This multi-year project invites residents, businesses and community groups to provide ideas on the vision and values that will help direct long-term planning decisions for Vallejo.
Establishing the Guiding Principles marks the beginning of the Vallejo Planning Initiatives Project. The Guiding Principles will define the kind of community the people of Vallejo want, which will serve as a compass for the project throughout the next three years. The project will conclude with the following components, each of which will contain innovative ways to ensure that physical changes fit and enhance Vallejo’s character:
- The General Plan Update will guide land use decisions throughout the city, tie together existing plans and promote economic vitality, public health and safety.
- Specific Plan for Sonoma Boulevard will support economic development along with the recently completed design standards for the area.
- An update to the Zoning Code will incorporate a more user-friendly design consistent with the General Plan.
- Environmental Review of all project components.
The planning effort includes four public workshops at locations across the city, this online forum and targeted outreach activities to various groups, including youth, seniors and faith-based organizations, in order to hear from the full spectrum of voices in the community.
