On August 23, 2021, at a Joint Study Session, the City Council and Planning Commission adopted a set of General Plan Guiding Principles for the Solvang General Plan Update. The Guiding Principles express the key values and aspirations for Solvang's future and serve as guideposts for the goals, policies, and implementation programs contained in the General Plan. All General Plan goals, policies, and implementation programs will need to be consistent with Guiding Principles.
The City of Solvang GPAC met on Wednesday August 4, 2021, to review comments and recommendations on the Draft Vision Statement and Guiding Principles from the Design Review Committee (DRC). As part of their final review the GPAC are recommending a Vision Statement and Guiding Principles for consideration to the Planning Commission and City Council. The recommended Vision Statement and Guiding Principles is a compilation of community aspirations collected from two community workshops and online engagement on the General Plan website (plansolvang.com). The Planning Commission and City Council will review the recommended Vision Statement and Guiding Principles from the GPAC at their August 23, 2021, meeting and finalize a Vision Statement and Guiding Principles for the General Plan.
