Recent Milestones

During the City Council hearing, held on August 3, 2021, the consultant team for the City of Fowler General Plan Update presented the Land Use Alternatives Summary Report (Report), along with a review of recommendations made by both staff and the City of Fowler Planning Commission.

The City Council, following the presentation by the project team and public comment period, provided official direction to move forward with Alternative 4 with Tiered Urban Growth Boundaries (staff recommended land use alternative) with some changes. A full summary of the workshop, along with a full written description of City Council’s selected land use alternative, inclusive of changes, can be reviewed in the hearing summary linked below. Additional workshop materials, presentations, and a full copy of the Land Use Alternatives Summary Report are also available to review using the links provided below.

Next Steps

The project team will update the land use plan to reflect City Council’s selection and begin drafting the General Plan Background Report, new General Plan policies, and begin preparing for the draft Environmental Impact Report. Additional public meetings will take place as new milestones are met.
