Walnut City Council Discuss General Plan Update

Staff Reports

Walnut – Walnut City Council is working with the Planning Commission to discuss the progress of the General Plan Update. The workshop will be taking place at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Walnut City Hall on Wednesday, October 19.

The City Council and Planning Commission will discuss the subject of Land Use possibilities for other areas of Walnut. The General Plan Update is believed to be the “law” or “backbone” of Walnut’s land use and related policy. It serves as a manual to assist policy actions and expand the vision for the community related to land use, circulation, housing, conservation, open space, safety and noise. Walnut’s current General Plan has aided the community for over 38 years since its adoption in 1978. Although, due to the significant growth in Walnut, council members are forced to discuss their further plans regarding the physical, environmental, economic, social, and demographic characteristics of Walnut.

Residents with inquiries on the project are encouraged to contact Walnut City Hall at 909-595-7543 or visit their office directly at 21201 La Puente Road, Walnut, California, 91789. City Hall is open Mon-Thurs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Residents can also visit the City’s website at www.cityofwalnut.org under the header Popular Links and the Community Resources drop-down menu.
