The City of Oceanside’s General Plan is the primary source of long-range planning and policy direction used to guide growth and preserve the quality of life in the City. Oceanside’s General Plan contains 10 elements many of which were adopted in the 1970’s while others were adopted more recently due to changes in State law or changes in the conditions affecting Oceanside. As our community grows and changes, the various elements will continue to be updated and amended to ensure that the guidance they provide for future growth within the community reflects the actual desires of the residents and businesses of Oceanside.
The current elements of Oceanside’s General Plan and the year adopted are: Land Use – 1988; Recreational Trails – 2012; Housing – 2013; Environmental Resource Management – 1975; Community Facilities – 1990; Public Safety – 1975; Noise – 1974; Hazardous Waste Management – 1990; Military Reservation – 1981; Redevelopment Plan – 1982; Local Coastal Plan – 1985; and Circulation – 2012. Ms. Bohlen reported that three other elements may be considered: Water Supply and Drought; Climate Control; and, Economic Development.
The Emerging Issues Committee meets on the first Thursday of each month at 8:00am at the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce. The Committee studies issues that impact our businesses and/or our community.
