As required by State law, the updated General Plan will take a comprehensive, longā€term view to direct future land use, resource and other decisions in the City over the next 25 years. The process of updating the General Plan includes a number of events that seek the participation of you, your neighbors, businesses, and property owners. This process is structured to lead the General Plan from vision, to creation, to adoption, to implementation by the community.

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