Advance Planning focuses on the future - what our community will physically look like, how we'll account for changing conditions, what we can do to enhance the quality of life for tomorrow, and the generations to come.
In that light, the City is currently working on a multi-year effort to comprehensively update the Local Coastal Program (LCP) and General Plan. Information on this process and opportunities to participate can be found at the Plan Half Moon Bay website.
Our Advance Planning staff maintains and updates the Local Coastal Program (LCP) including its Local Coastal Land Use Plan (LCLUP) and the City’s General Plan and the various elements it contains. They also coordinate efforts with regional, State, and Federal planning agencies to ensure consistency with the laws that govern land use, development, subdivision and environmental quality.
