We are excited to announce that the City has begun a two-year process to update the General Plan! The General Plan establishes the goals, policies, and direction the City will take to achieve the vision of the community over the next 20 years.

American Canyon has changed significantly since adoption of its current General Plan in 1992. The Update will ensure that the City’s General Plan reflects current community needs and priorities. The Plan will also address new issues (e.g., community health and climate change), changes in State law (e.g., greenhouse gas emission reductions), and new trends (e.g., shared mobility and online shopping).

The General Plan Update process provides residents, businesses, and interested parties the chance to help guide the future of our community. We believe that everyone is a stakeholder. A successful General Plan will reflect the community’s vision and priorities. We believe that your voice is vital to producing a plan that will reflect your vision for the City’s future. 

We welcome you to sign up for our General Plan Update email notifications and check out our General Plan Fact Sheet.
