General Plan Circulation & Trails Master Plan
All transportation planning matters rely on the Circulation Element of the City’s General Plan and a complimentary Trails Master Plan. The General Plan is the basis for all City planning and fiscal decisions. The Circulation Element in particular aims to address transportation and utility systems. The City uses the Circulation Element to prioritize capital improvement projects and set planning priorities. The current Circulation Element was drafted in 2007.
One of the implementation measures in the 2007 Circulation Element was the creation of a Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan. The City created the plan in 2009 to identify potential cycling and pedestrian paths and supporting facilities.
