General Plan Update

Top Links

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in the update of the City's General Plan.

The City of Alhambra has kicked off its Comprehensive General Plan Update branded as  “Vision 2035 – A Community’s Mosaic.”  The General Plan is a long-range vision for the future of the community, and is sometimes referred to as the “blueprint” or “constitution” for the future. The City’s General Plan was last adopted in 1986, and although parts of the plan have been updated since then, it is necessary for the City to once again look into its future and decide what it wants to be, the direction it wants to go in and how it will get there.  

The Draft General Plan and Draft EIR are available at the City of Alhambra Community Development Department, located at 111 South First Street, Alhambra, California, 91801; the Alhambra Civic Center Library, located at 101 South First Street, Alhambra, California, 91801; and available through the following links below:


The Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Alhambra General Plan,Vision 2040 - A Community Mosaic is available for review from August 3, 2018 to October 3, 2018.

The period for submitting comments on the Draft EIR has been extended to 5:00 p.m. on October 3, 2018. All comments must be mailed or submitted no later than October 3, 2018. Written comments may be submitted by U.S. Mail or by e-mail to:
