WHAT IS THE GENERAL PLAN?
The General Plan is a strategic document to guide the physical development of the City over many years. Among other things, the General Plan sets out the pattern of land uses, including residential, commercial and industrial. It also establishes the system of streets, bikeways and trails. The General Plan addresses a wide variety of subject areas, including housing, traffic, natural resources, land uses, economic development, noise and public safety.
Every city and county in California is required by state law to prepare and maintain a General Plan, and the state provides guidelines for the preparation of General Plans.
The General Plan functions as a valuable decision-making tool, and provides the policy framework for all land use decisions made by the City. City staff, the Planning Commission and the City Council use it to evaluate every development project that is submitted for review and consideration within the City.
General Plan 2035 Vision Statement
"Agoura Hills is a special place surrounded by the Santa Monica Mountains where oak trees and rolling hills abound. Here we seek to preserve our city's best qualities while striving to create a better community. The future Agoura Hills is an attractive city of growing sophistication that chooses to retain its small town look and feel. The city remains a safe place, where people live, work, play, and move about in an economically viable and environmentally sustainable community. Sensitive growth and economic development are means of perpetuating our quality of life. These are balanced with resource conservation, as the city's semi-rural ranching past, rich history and unique neighborhoods are respected and open spaces and surrounding hillsides are preserved. Agoura Hills is a place where its citizens have opportunities to engage in their community through recreation, social and civic activities, schools, and neighborhood organizations."
The City's General Plan 2035 was adopted on March 24, 2010 by the City Council.
