General Plan

The General Plan has been described as the constitution for a city's development. It is the foundation upon which all development decisions are based and sets priorities and goals for the future. As prescribed by Government Code (§65302), the General Plan must include seven "elements" or subject categories: Land Use, Circulation, Housing, Conservation, Open Space, Noise, and Safety. It also may include other optional elements that address topics of interest or priority to a community. The City of Fremont General Plan includes the seven state-mandated elements as well as seven optional elements: Sustainability, Community Character, Economic Development, Parks and Recreation, Public Facilities, Community Plans, and Implementation.
