Scoping Meeting for the City of Sacramento 2040 General Plan Update and Climate Action Plan

The 2040 General Plan is the City’s blueprint for how and where Sacramento will grow over the next 20 years. It contains policies that guide everything from transportation, to the type of homes available, to jobs, entertainment, public safety and much more. In 2018, the City initiated an update to the General Plan to ensure it remains responsive to the challenges of the coming years. In parallel, the City will also be preparing an ambitious Climate Action Plan that outlines a community-wide framework for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and establishes Sacramento as a climate leader.

The City has issued a Notice of Preparation (NOP) of a Master Environmental Impact Report (MEIR) and Scoping Meeting for the City of Sacramento 2040 General Plan Update and Climate Action Plan. The NOP is available on the City’s Community Development Department web page.

A public Scoping Meeting will be held Wednesday, February 13, 2019, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Sacramento City Hall, 915 I Street, Room 1119, Sacramento, CA 95814. The scoping meeting will be conducted as an open house with a brief presentation at 5:45 p.m. Participants can drop-in anytime and there will be an opportunity to submit written comments on the scope of the environmental analysis.

The City is initiating the 2040 General Plan Update and Climate Action Plan, consistent with the City’s requirement to revise and update the General Plan every five years, as necessary, to address significant emerging trends, recent state statutes, new issues, and to update the status of implementation measures.
