About  the General Plan Update

The General Plan addresses vital aspects of community life, including land use, economic development, transportation, parks and recreation, cultural and natural resources, public safety, and more. It serves as a valuable reference for City staff, elected and appointed officials, business owners, developers, and citizens, guiding decisions that reflect community values and policy requirements.

The General Plan Update is a platform for residents and businesses to articulate their vision for Sonoma’s future. What do you cherish about Sonoma? What opportunities and challenges do you foresee for the City in the next 10, 15, or 20 years? Engaging in the Sonoma General Plan Update process ensures that the updated plan encapsulates the values and priorities of all its stakeholders.

With the existing plan dating back to 2006, this update is crucial to align Sonoma’s growth with our values. It covers land use, economic development, transportation, and more, guiding decisions for a thriving city.
