Welcome to the San Clemente Centennial General Plan!

The General Plan provides long-term goals and policies for achieving San Clemente’s Vision. It guides growth and development to achieve optimum results from the City's physical, economic, environmental and human resources. Per State law, General Plans are required to include seven elements (Land Use, Housing, Circulation, Noise, Safety, Open Space and Conservation). The organization of these seven elements, and any optional elements, are determined by the local jurisdiction. The Centennial General Plan is made up of twelve elements: Land Use; Urban Design; Historic Preservation; Economic Development; Mobility; Beaches, Parks and Recreation; Natural Resources; Coastal; Safety; Public Services, Facilities and Utilities; Growth Management; and Governance.

At a public hearing held on _______, 2013, the San Clemente City Council unanimously approved the Centennial General Plan, an accompanying Strategic Implementation Plan, and two key plans: the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and the Climate Action Plan.

We hope you enjoy the new Plan; its content, its easily accessible information, photographs, and more. There is a wealth of information about San Clemente and its future contained here for you to peruse.

The Policy Plan is intended to be a long term policy document and is largely comprised by goals (what we want to achieve) and policies (how we accomplish these goals). Except those that are required by Housing Element regulations, implementation measures are not adopted as part of the General Plan. However, given the web format, links to implementation measures are included in each element section.
