Long Range Planning forecasts future conditions and needs, identifies community concerns, and provides strategies to meet adopted goals. These strategies are used by the City as policies and standards for day-to-day decision making. Long-range plans, such as Jurupa Valley’s General Plan, guide how the City grows, looks and prospers. Long-Range Planning staff help prepare, maintain, and implement these long-range plans and help prepare and implement neighborhood improvement and community design plans.
ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE ELEMENT OF THE GENERAL PLAN
At its November 6, 2014 meeting, the City Council unanimously adopted a negative declaration of environmental impact and approved a new Environmental Justice Element. The Environmental Justice (EJ) Element is now part of the City's General Plan and is in effect. To review the new EJ Element, click here. The EJ Element contains objectives and policies regarding how disadvantaged and minority populations can have a meaningful say in conditions and decisions that affect the healthfulness of their environment. It also contains policies to ensure land use decisions do not pose environmental risks to these populations, and calls for City plans and public rights-of-way to include facilities for walking, biking, and other forms of active transportation. Furthermore, the EJ Element addresses safe and affordable housing to ensure all residents are protected from environmental hazards where they live. In addition to addressing environmental issues, the Element also addresses personal health issues, including healthy eating habits and fitness goals.
