Jurupa Valley General PlanThe City's First General Plan Prepared With Limited Resources
City’s Interim General Plan Underway
Preparation of the City of Jurupa Valley’s first “Interim” General Plan is underway! The plan will serve as a blueprint for future growth and development and will be tailored to reflect the character and values of the City. The City Council has included the General Plan project in the Planning Department budget to enable it to be done in-house by Civic Solutions, the City’s contract service for all Planning Department functions.
The General Plan process began in January of 2015 with a series of eight public workshops to identify what makes the area unique and address issues to be discussed in the plan. A General Plan Advisory Committee, or “GPAC”, was also convened and held 11 meetings throughout 2015. The GPAC developed a Community Values Statement which describes the fundamental goals of the City which will be used to set the framework for the General Plan. To view the Community Values Statement, click here. The GPAC also provided input on assets, issues and needs related to the elements to be included in the General Plan. The elements to be included are: Land Use; Open Space/Conservation; Mobility; Community Safety, Services & Facilities; Noise; Housing; Air Quality; Environmental Justice; Healthy Communities; and, Economic Sustainability.
The Planning Commission and City Council have also been actively involved in the General Plan process through participation in the GPAC and work sessions on key topics. The Planning Commission also recently provided in-depth guidance on nineteen areas of the City proposed by staff for General Plan land use changes.
City staff and its consultants are currently preparing drafts of the Interim General Plan, technical studies and Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The documents are expected to be available for public review in the Summer of 2016 with public hearings to follow.
