San José

General Plans 101

Lunchtime Forum

This fall, San Jose launches its second four-year review of its general plan, Envision 2040. But what exactly is a general plan? Who requires it? Why do general plans matter? What does a general plan cover…or not cover? Join us as we answer these questions and more while learning how San Jose’s own plan works and how it may be changing. Co-presented by APA Northern California.
