Long Range Plans
Below is a listing of proposed long-range plans and long-range plans that have been adopted by the Board of Supervisors.
Types of long-range plans:
- General Plan
The General Plan is a policy document that establishes a vision for the future of Sonoma County. It prioritizes, organizes, and directs development and conservation. General Plan policies are implemented by specific standards and rules that exist within the County’s Zoning Ordinance, Area Plans, and Specific Plans.
- Area Plans
An Area Plan is a policy document that supplements the General Plan. It includes goals, policies and programs for a specific community, but unlike a Specific Plan, does not include specific zoning regulations or standards.
- Specific Plans
Specific Plans provide more precise development policies related to particular geographic areas.
