General Plan Update


Did you know the City is updating its General Plan?

The Fountain Valley General Plan is the primary long-range policy and planning document guiding the city’s physical development, conservation, and improvement. Every city in California is required by state law to adopt a general plan containing goals and
policies that expresses the community’s vision of its future, improves public safety, and enhances access to and the use of available resources.

The City’s General Plan was last comprehensively updated in 1995. For more information review the project Revised Fact Sheet, Public Involvement Plan, and Schedule.

What’s New:

Virtual Workshops coming in August! - The City is hosting a series of workshops for residents and stakeholders to learn more about and help shape how Fountain Valley will grow and change over the next 20+ years. Subscribe to receive workshop details prior to every workshop.
