General Plan & Housing Element


The General Plan is a comprehensive plan for growth and development in the City of Grass Valley and the surrounding unincorporated area. Together, the City and surrounding unincorporated area are termed the Planning Area.

A General Plan is often compared to a “constitution” for local development, and serves as the policy basis for all land use decisions. Every county and city in California is required by State law to adopt a general plan.
