A General Plan is an adopted statement of policy for the physical development and growth of a community.  The Ceres General Plan 2035 (PDF) and the supporting General Plan Land Use Map (PDF) define the City’s official policy regarding its future character and quality of development. The General Plan describes the amount, type and phasing of development needed to achieve the City’s social, economic, and environmental goals. It is the policy framework for decision making on both private development projects and City capital expenditures.
