Pine Meadows Park Update

November 22, 2021 

Following a series of public workshops, the Parks, Recreation, Marina and Cultural Commission (PRMCC) voted at their regular meeting of November 16, 2021 to recommend to the City Council a list of Priority elements and a conceptual plan (pending further revisions) for the City Council to consider as part of a discussion item scheduled for the December 1, 2021 City Council meeting. The concept plan for the 8.22 acres/358,000 square foot park parcel also reflects the addition of a 35,000 square foot flat area in the southwest portion of the park parcel to the original 1.8 acre/78,000 square foot flat area for a total of 113,000 square feet of programmable space for park amenities. This new flat area to be graded by the developer De Nova was included as a provision of the November 4, 2021 amendment to the 2019 Settlement Agreement between De Nova, the City, and the Friends of Pine Meadow.

General Plan Update

November 8, 2021 

We are excited to announce a major revision to the prior General Plan Update elements from 2016 has been prepared and is now available for public review and comment as we embark on a series of three joint public meeting workshops on with the Planning Commission and City Council on December 1st and 15th, 2021, and January 12, 2022, to discuss the updated draft elements in greater detail. No formal action will be taken at these workshops; instead, the input received will help guide further revisions to the elements and culminate in a final draft General Plan Update to be presented to the Planning Commission and City Council for consideration later in 2022. The City will also revise and recirculate the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the General Plan Update in the spring of 2022 providing further opportunity for public review and engagement on this important project.

Join our General Plan process! Residents and community stakeholders are encouraged to review and submit comments on the Revised Draft General Plan Comments can be emailed to
