Propel Vallejo General Plan Update: Choose your City's Future
Through a series of community workshops and online activities this past spring, Vallejoans shared their vision for change in key Opportunity Areas in the city. The broad range of ideas generated through that process was distilled into three distinct Future Scenarios, each of which describes a different way that Vallejo could evolve over the next 25 years. Learn more about the scenarios by scrolling to the bottom of the page.
The Future Scenarios are important to the General Plan Update because they allow us to think about the key areas where we want the city to grow and change, as well as different options for land use and intensity that will help us meet our community-wide goals. They also help to identify the different infrastructure projects that would be needed to support future development.
We need your input to help the community decide which scenario, or combination of components from the scenarios, offers the most benefit. That “Preferred Scenario” will serve as the backbone of the updated General Plan.

This scenario envisions Vallejo as a community oriented to the water. A vibrant downtown core and waterfront would be the showpiece of the community, and a renaissance in this part of the city would complement employment, residential and recreational activity on Mare Island and catalyze change in other key areas of Vallejo. New housing and residents downtown, and on the central and southern waterfront activate this area of the city day and night, drawing tourists and students as well. A new education campus on the south waterfront consolidates Vallejo as a 21st Century college town.
|Scenario A||% Change vs 2015|
This scenario focuses development around regional commercial and entertainment attractions near the freeways to promote a second town center to complement the more residential downtown area. Job growth in the New Town Center near Six Flags and the Fairgrounds, and along Sonoma and Broadway north of Sereno, help establish Vallejo as a regional employment center, with an array of restaurant and entertainment options.
|Scenario B||% Change vs 2015|
This scenario envisions Vallejo as a network of connected village centers, each with a distinct character and vocation. Future development is focused to support thriving village centers, while direct bus and bicycle connections between the villages provide safe, easy routes for getting around the city. Vallejo draws on its historic past, inviting tourists with charming bed & breakfast accommodations in heritage neighborhoods and a visitor rail station at the Badge & Pass site.
|Scenario C||% Change vs 2015|
