Plan Morro Bay is a two-year process to update the City's General Plan and Local Coastal Program, as required by California state law. The documents will look toward the future of our community and address issues such as transportation, housing, open space, conservation, and safety. The final documents, the "blueprint" and the "greenprint" will present the City's intended long-term development and conservation policies.
The City's Plan Morro Bay project team includes City staff and a consultant team led by Michael Baker International. The project team will work with the City's seven-member General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) throughout the project and will seek frequent input from the community at large.

The documents will look toward the future of our community and address issues such as transportation, housing, open space, conservation, safety, and more.

The final documents, the “blueprint” and the “greenprint,” will present the City's intended long-term development and conservation policies. A program environmental impact report (EIR) will be prepared to address the potential impacts of these plans, and comprehensive updates to the Zoning Ordinance and Local Implementation Plan will follow to ensure they are aligned with the General Plan and Local Coastal Program.
Over the next one to two years, the City of Morro Bay will be working with you to define our future. We need your input as we work to update the City's General Plan/Local Coastal Program and Zoning Code update.
