The City of Foster City is currently updating its Land Use and Circulation Element of the City's General Plan and preparing a Climate Action Plan.
The Land Use and Circulation Element is being updated because many of the objectives stated in the existing Element have been met. A new Land Use and Circulation Element is required to address new planning issues that will emerge. The updated Element is intended to be a map for the future that will guide the development and growth of the City while maintaining and enhancing the quality of life.
The Climate Action Plan will guide residents, businesses and local government in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Climate Action Plan incorporates implementation measures from existing City efforts, such as the Sustainability Action Plan, General Plan and Sustainable Foster City Plan, as well as new implementation measures to achieve greenhouse gas reductions.
See the links below for the latest drafts of these documents and matrices noting the changes in goals, policies and programs in the Land Use and Circulation Element.
