General Plan/ Housing Element Update

OVERVIEW

The City of San Pablo is updating key parts of our long-range plan (called the General Plan) to expand housing and job options, address housing affordability, and improve quality of life in the city. As part of the General Plan update, we can plan where new housing, employment, and shopping should be located and how to achieve other community objectives like increasing workforce training opportunities, improving neighborhood safety, and recreation programs for youth and seniors. We want to hear from you to make sure the Plan reflects the priorities of our community!
