The existing conditions report contains chapters on land use, circulation, economics and community character. The chapters can be read together or as stand-alone documents. They are intended to provide informative overviews and perspectives to help the community gain insight into how the General Plan can influence key local issues, and technical explanations of the complex, interconnected subjects the Plan must consider. The reports seek to distill a large amount of data in an accessible manner to act as a starting point for future policy discussions. Each existing conditions report has a concluding section entitled “Summary Key Findings” that emphasizes pressing issues and opportunities.
