The City of Carlsbad is in the process of updating our General Plan. We encourage you to get involved, provide input, and be a part of Carlsbad's future!
In addition to updating the General Plan, the city will prepare updates to other related plans including:
- Local Coastal Program - guides future development in the city’s coastal zone in a manner that protects and enhances coastal resources
- Zoning Ordinance - provides detailed land use and development regulations throughout the city
The city has prepared a draft Climate Action Plan, which is a long-range strategy to help meet state greenhouse gas reduction goals while supporting a community goal of promoting a sustainable environment.
The city has also prepared a draft Environmental Impact Report to study the potential effects the General Plan policies might have on the environment.
