2016 General Plan
On September 28, 2016 Westminster City Council adopted the updated 2016 General Plan, which takes a fresh look at where Westminster is today and where it’s going. The Adopted General Plan is a state-mandated document that includes the maps and policies that will guide Westminster’s growth for the next 20 years. The City’s first General Plan was adopted in 1965 and has been updated two times prior (1985 and 1996) to the current effort.
The General Plan is the product of a 2+ year effort involving meetings with the community, General Plan Advisory Committee, City staff, the Planning Commission and the City Council. The Plan includes chapters addressing land use, economic development, community design, mobility, parks and recreation, infrastructure and natural resources, and public health and safety. A separate part of the General Plan addresses housing; that portion was adopted in 2014 to meet State requirements.
