Land Use Alternatives Memorandum Available for Review!

The General Plan Land Use Alternatives Memorandum is available for review! The Land Use Alternatives Memorandum describes a series of possible land use concepts for future growth within the City over the next 20 years. City staff and the advanced planning specialists prepared the land use concepts based on community input from Community Workshops #1-3, PumpkinFest (2019), and technical analysis.

We invite you to review the Memorandum and provide feedback on your thoughts on the future of Ukiah. All public comments submitted will be presented to the Planning Commission and City Council at a Joint Study Session tentatively set for March 2022

Vision and Guiding Principles Preview

Vision and Guiding Principles

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.
