“Last winter and spring, we received community input on the Preferred Land Use Alternative which will be the basis of the updated General Plan Land Use Map,” said Palmdale Director of Economic and Community Development Carlene Saxton. “Now, the General Plan Team is preparing draft policies—called policy frameworks—that are an interim step in the General Plan Update process before drafting the elements, or chapters, for the General Plan. Ultimately the General Plan will serve as a compass for decision-makers and will shape the future of the City. Join us and have a say in what you’d like to see your City become!”
