A vision statement is an aspirational description of what the community would like to be in the future. The vision provides the foundation for more specific goals, policies, and implementation programs to be developed later during the update process. On March 3, 2021, the Ukiah City Council approved a Vision Statement for the Ukiah 2040 General Plan Update.
At the heart of the General Plan are the “Guiding Principles” that express the key values and aspirations for Ukiah’s future and serve as guideposts for the goals, policies, and implementation programs contained in the General Plan. These principles expand on the main ideas contained in the vision statement so that important concepts are given more weight. Guiding principles are purposefully broadly stated in order to guide the City throughout development of the updated General Plan. All general plan goals, policies, and implementation programs will need to be consistent with the Vision and Guiding Principles.
This workbook tells the story of Ukiah – where it has been, where it is today, and the trends that will shape its future. This workbook focuses on providing the foundational information about the physical, natural, cultural, and economic conditions and trends that sets the stage for updating the General Plan.
Due to file size, we have split the Workbook into two PDFs. Please use the links below to download each part.
