What is Complete?
During the month of August 2006, consultants and City staff met with
City stakeholders, organizations and the general public in a series
of one-on-one and group interviews to identify issues that affect
the community growth and stability. This Visioning Process
established a set of Guiding Principles that will be used to
formulate policies for each topic of the General Plan.
During the month of November 2006, a series of five Community
Visioning Workshops were conducted to provide an opportunity for
residents and business owners to share their vision of the City of
Inglewood and to inform City officials about issues that affect all
residents and business owners. Issues such as land uses, housing,
transportation and traffic, open space, schools and public services
were addressed during the Visioning Workshops for inclusion in the
General Plan update process. A Summary of the Community Visioning
meetings can be viewed under Reports and Documents.
Confirm Vision and Guiding Principles
In February 2007, the consultant met with City staff to refine the
Vision established by the public and stakeholders for presentation
to the City Council and various Commissions and Boards.
In March 2007, the consultant provided an overview of the General
Plan Update process and the Guiding Principles developed during
meetings with stakeholders, community visioning participants and
staff. The Guiding Principles will be articulated in the community’s
development Vision and establish the foundation for the policy
framework for the updated General Plan.
Preliminary Land Use Alternatives
Beginning in June 2007, the City and consultant team began the
process of formulating Growth and Land Use Alternatives for several
geographic Planning Areas within the City, in consideration of the
Technical Background Report, the Vision, and Guiding Principles
developed previously. Click here to view the Land Use Alternatives
and Policy Formulation document. Generally, this document identifies
(a) those areas of the City in which uses will be preserved and
those areas in which new development shall be targeted (e.g., on
vacant lands or re-use/intensification of existing land), and (b) a
“use” plan that specifies what alternative land uses are most
appropriate to consider for those target areas, including the type
of use, density, and character of uses within these areas.
Community Workshops to Discuss Land Use Alternatives
Community workshops were held in September 2007 to discuss with the
community of Inglewood the alternative growth and land use
alternatives. .The workshops provided the public an opportunity to
review and discuss the preliminary land use options/alternatives for
each of the Planning Areas discussed above. The participants
provided feedback on each alternative land use considered and even
recommended additional alternatives to consider in various areas of
the City. A summary of the workshops will be posted shortly.

What comes next?
Planning Commission and City Council Review and Confirmation of Land Use
During the month of October 2007, the Land Use Alternatives and
Policy Formulation document will be reviewed with the Planning
Commission and City Council to receive input and confirmation
regarding each land use alternative considered. The feedback
received from the community at each of the community workshops will
also be used to refine the land use alternatives.
Evaluate Alternative Growth and Land Use Scenarios
Alternative growth and land use development concepts will be
evaluated for their comparative fiscal, circulation, and
environmental impacts. The findings, along with the alternatives,
will be reviewed with the public and at Planning Commission/City
Council study sessions. Input received will be used to refine the
alternatives and, ultimately, select a preferred plan.
