What's the Status of the General Plan Update?

(Update as of March 19, 2018). You may have seen a notice in Around Alhambra indicating that the Draft General Plan Update and Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) would be available for public review beginning March 23, 2018. However, the City and its consultant continue to refine both documents, and they will not be completed by this date. A new notice indicating a revised date for public review will be issued once the documents are ready. We anticipate that this will occur in the next couple of months and apologize for any inconvenience that this delay has caused. If you have already signed up for email notifications, you will be emailed when the documents are available for review. If you have not signed up and wish to be notified please send an email to: generalplan@cityofalhambra.org. Please type “Request for Notification” in the subject line.
