The Martinez General Plan Update Martinez’s General Plan is undergoing its first comprehensive update since the 1970s. Each city (and county) in California must prepare and adopt a comprehensive, long-term general plan for the physical development of the city and of any land outside its boundaries which bears relation to planning for its future. When a city creates a general plan, hearing the voices in the community is essential. All members of the community are encouraged to participate. Over the next two years City decision-makers, City staff and the community will be working to update the City of Martinez General Plan that will guide land use and development over the next 20 years in the City. While there are specific topics that must be included in a general plan, the City of Martinez General Plan is intended to do much more than merely meet legal requirements. The City’s General Plan exists as our community’s statement of its fundamental values and our shared vision for future development. It is intended to articulate how we, the citizens of Martinez, view the community, now and in the future, and, most importantly, how the community intends to deal with current and future planning and development issues.

We would like to collect your comment sheet so that we can document your comments as part of the City’s General Plan Update process. These questions/forums are part of the initial community outreach process and cover our COMMUNITY VALUES and our VISION FOR THE FUTURE.* Your responses will help us define what you want the Martinez General Plan to accomplish. It is an opportunity for you to tell us what is important to you as the new General Plan is developed. We want to know what you think! What places or features of Martinez do you like? What places or features do you not like? What seems to be missing? What places could be made better? How do you see the City of Martinez in the future? We will be using your input to help create the City of Martinez 2030 General Plan — “Martinez 21st Century.” Comments will be collected until SATURDAY, JANUARY 15, 2011.
*To ensure that the General Plan fits within our overall goals, we are developing a WORKING VISION for Martinez in the year 2030. A VISION is a way of looking at the future. It is a dream about the future, shared by the community. A successful VISION paints a picture of the type of place we want to live, work and play in. Our VISION is more than just a description of what we hope to see in Martinez; it also describes the legacy we hope to achieve and defines the way we want to work together to create a more livable community.
