All good things come to an end, and the City of Watsonville is approaching the end of its General Plan Update process. I am looking at an official City of Watsonville Public Hearing Notice, which says this:
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a public hearing will be held by the City Council of the City of Watsonville, on Tuesday, September 25, 2012, at the 6:30 p.m. session, in the City Council Chambers, 275 Main Street, 4th Floor…, Watsonville, California, to consider [the] Watsonville Vista 2030 General Plan Update and Final Environmental Impact Report.
The City’s General Plan will guide how, when, and where the City will grow. It establishes the community’s vision of what the community wants to become and how that vision will be achieved through policy goals and objectives. The General Plan includes policy statements on conservation, land use, transportation, housing, public services, and parks and recreation, among others.
The proposed General Plan has been developed in response to a court case that invalidated an earlier General Plan revision. As the Public Notice says, “The project affects all properties within the City Limits of the City of Watsonville.”
If you live in or have a business in the City of Watsonville, don’t miss your chance to help shape the future of your community. What will probably be the final hearing is tomorrow night.
