Building Our City - Guiding Our Future

General Plan Cover

Following a two-year process that consisted of over 50 public meetings and workshops, on June 26, 2006, the City adopted its first General Plan.  The General Plan serves as the blueprint for future growth and development; the blueprint to "Build a City." The Plan contains policies and programs designed to provide decision makers with a solid foundation for land use and development decisions. It organizes the desires of Rancho Cordova residents with respect to the physical, social, economic, and environmental character of the City.
