What is covered in the Land Use Element?The Land Use element designates the general location and intensity of housing, businesses, industry, open space, education, public buildings and grounds, waste disposal facilities, and other land uses. It helps guide future development and preserve environmental resources.
What is covered in the Circulation Element?The Circulation Element includes goals and policies relating to how people, products and visitors move around San Luis Obispo. This includes cars, bicycles, pedestrians, air transportation, as well as public transportation such as buses and shuttles.
What is a General Plan?A General Plan can be described as the "blueprint" for the City's Future. It represents the community's vision as goals and policies to direct decision-making. California state law requires that each city adopt a general plan addressing seven mandatory components or "elements": Land Use, Circulation, Housing, Conservation, Open Space, Noise and Safety. The City of San Luis Obispo also has a Water and Wastewater Element.
