How is this General Plan different than the General Plans that we’ve had before?

For the first time ever, this General Plan does not expand our city’s Sphere of Influence. It plans for our future increase in population by promoting infill instead of further expansion over valuable farmland.

It says that 45% of future growth will be accommodated using infill, and 55% will fit in the “new” growth areas that are already in our sphere of influence. New growth areas can be outside the city limits or in neighborhoods that are younger than 10 years old.
