The below projects outline the various concurrent urban planning projects that are underway led by the City of Modesto. Each project includes tailored community engagement and dialogue to create an effective plan that reflects the needs and vision for the community.
The parent project for these projects is the City’s General Plan Update – Modesto 2050, which serves as the City’s “blueprint for future growth” or a “constitution for future development.” The General Plan is a set of policies, charts, maps, and other graphics which collectively respond to California State Law requirements structured to meet local conditions. Modesto adopted its first General Plan in 1959. The General Plan was comprehensively updated in 1974 and 1995. Since then, the General Plan has been amended several times, including periodic Housing Element updates as required by State law.
