General Plan Update 2015 - 2035
A Message from Mayor Warren and the Fontana City Council
From 2015 to 2017, we updated our state-required General Plan to develop a specific plan for Downtown Fontana and updated the city’s zoning in order to guide future development of our city.
Planning for the future means planning together and forging a shared vision of what kind of city we want to be in the next 20 years. Fontana Forward is based on our community’s vision for the future, a set of goals and strategies to achieve the vision and a zoning code that reflects the vision within the state’s broader framework for growth. Whether you’ve lived in Fontana all your life or set down roots here in recent years, everyone who calls our city home or operates a business here has a voice in this initiative.
We are committed to an open and transparent process so that everybody has a chance to bring their ideas and experience to the plan. There are many opportunities to participate including public workshops, drop-in open houses, surveys, community forums and online discussions. The more people that participate in this planning process, the better our final plan will be.
Please join us in moving Fontana Forward.
