Recommendation to Review and Accept the Annual Reports on the General Plan, Climate Action and Resiliency Plan (CARP), and the Transportation Choices Plan. (Planning, Building and Transportation 481001)

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report includes three annual reports for City Council. The three reports reflect a multi-departmental effort by the Office of the City Manager, the Public Works Department, and the Planning, Building and Transportation Department. The three reports include:

1. General Plan Annual Report (Exhibit 1),

3. Transportation Choices Annual Report (Exhibit 3)

Staff provides these annual reports early in the spring of each year so that the community and City Council is able to use the annual reports to inform citywide budget and Capital Improvement Program ("CIP") decisions, which are typically made in May and June of each year.
