What is the General Plan? 
Torrance's General Plan provides a snapshot of Torrance today, a vision for Torrance tomorrow, development policy guidance for decision-makers, and a work program that outlines the steps required to get from today to tomorrow. To respond to physical, environmental, economic, social, and demographic changes in the community, the City has embarked on an exciting process to update the General Plan.

How can I get Involved?
In order to accomplish this very important mission, the City has crafted a public outreach program to learn from community experts - those who live, work and play in Torrance. Several Planning Commission workshops and public open houses will be held in coming months to discuss various aspects of the General Plan program. Members of the public are encouraged to attend these meetings and offer their perspectives on Torrance's future. Opportunities for public comment will be available at all General Plan meetings.

(Please note that dates for upcoming Planning Commission meetings have been changed. Please check the Planning Commission Workshop page for more information)
