As required by State law, the 2040 General Plan takes a comprehensive, longā€term view to direct future land use, resource and other decisions in the City over the next 20 years. The process of updating the General Plan included a number of opportunities for participation by citizens, neighbors, businesses, and property owners. The process was structured to lead the General Plan from vision, to creation, to adoption, to implementation by the community.

The previous General Plan for the City of Eureka was adopted in February 1997 and had not been comprehensively updated since its adoption. Some of the data, analyses, and policies in the 1997 plan did not fully reflect the current conditions or objectives of the City. As a result, an update of the General Plan was necessary to reflect the community’s current vision for accommodating future growth and providing services within Eureka through 2040.
