General Plan Amendment


The City’s General Plan is the “blueprint” for how, where and when development occurs and contains plans, goals and policies to protect public health, safety and welfare, protect the environment, and enhance the quality of life in Jurupa Valley. 


Requests to amend the General Plan require submittal of an application, fee, checklist and supporting information describing the proposed amendment and reasons for the change. By State law, cities and counties may amend their general plans up to four times per year, unless otherwise allowed by California Government Code 65358. Amendment requests are considered by the Planning Commission, which evaluates the request and makes a recommendation to the City Council.

The City Council takes final action on General Plan amendments and the Council’s action is final.
