Welcome to the Vallejo General Plan Update Page

(3EU) Community Engagement Page

The City of Vallejo is updating the Housing, Safety, and Environmental Justice Elements of the General Plan to improve housing, safety, health, and equity in Vallejo. This is the main webpage for all three of these important tasks.


Environmental Justice

“Environmental justice” is the concept that everyone deserves to live in a safe and healthy neighborhood, regardless of income, race, ethnicity, education, or other factors. The environmental justice component of this General Plan will gather data and community input on issues of equity, health, and environmental racism. Examples might include exposure to air and water pollution, access to parks and recreation, and access to healthy and affordable food. It will identify specific groups who are most impacted by these issues so that the City can develop policies to help improve conditions around them.

YOUR VOICE MATTERS

Do you have any opinions you would like to share regarding issues such as availability of healthy food, clean air and water, safe housing and good play spaces?

Please take this short survey: Vallejo Environmental Justice and Community Health Questionnaire.

We want to hear from you about the needs of the community and your ideas for how to make Vallejo safer, healthier, and more equitable.


Housing

The Housing Element will analyze Vallejo’s specific housing needs, identify sites suitable for housing, assesses fair housing conditions, and provide goals, policies, and programs to respond to identified issues to encourage development of additional adequate housing to meet the needs of all income levels in the community. Community input will be a key component of the Housing Element. Click HERE to read more about the Housing Element.


Safety and Resilience

The Safety Element will include updated information about natural hazards like earthquakes, fires, floods, and droughts, as well as evacuation and emergency preparedness and response. It must also identify how these and other hazards in Vallejo are exacerbated by climate change, and what populations, locations, and community features are particularly vulnerable to climate hazards and changing climate conditions. The Safety Element will provide strategies to reduce the risks of death, injuries, property damage, and economic and social dislocation and to increase the community’s resilience.
