Reader Opinion: Second chance to comment on Livermore’s updated General Plan

Livermore downtown

For a couple of years, the City of Livermore has been going through the complicated process of updating the General Plan, the document that, through the miracle of zoning, enables us all to plan for the next couple of decades.

The process has been slow because it is a really big deal to plan for everything that goes into growing a city thoughtfully and carefully.

Based in part on previous community input, the City created three different land use scenarios for five focus areas around the city. Over the past month and ending in mid-November, the City has been asking for another round of community input.

On both Tuesday, November 14, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm and Saturday, November 18, from 10:00 to 11:00 am, the City will host webinars that give an overview of three different land use scenarios that focus on updates to five Livermore areas. These webinars will discuss the differences among the scenarios and the consequences of adopting one or the other.

Then, on Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 6:00-8:00 pm, plan to attend a workshop at the Croce Elementary School Multi-Purpose Room (located at 5650 Scenic Ave) to share your input on which scenario you prefer and why. The initial part of the workshop will include information on the different scenarios. You can register for both webinars and workshop at
