General Plan 2040
What is a General Plan?
A General Plan is a dynamic policy document intended to guide the long-term development of the city. The Plan reflects the community’s values and desires, as expressed in a broad vision for the future, and addresses important issues such as land use and urban design, economic development, circulation, resource conservation, public facilities and services, safety, public health, and sustainability. State law mandates that every California city adopt a general plan and ensure it is kept up-to-date.
Diamond Bar's first General Plan document was adopted in 1995, shortly after the City's incorporation in 1989.
On December 17, 2019, the City Council adopted the updated Diamond Bar General Plan and with that concluded a three-year collaborative community effort to create a vision and blueprint for development through 2040. The process included workshops, surveys, meetings, community outreach and the formation of a 15-member advisory committee.
