Announcement: General Plan Guidelines – Environmental Justice Guidance Release

The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research has updated the General Plan Guidelines to include revised guidance on environmental justice (EJ) in response to Senate Bill 1000 (Leyva, 2016). In addition to the guidance, OPR has also published an example policy language document along with a set of case studies to highlight EJ-related policies and initiatives that can be replicated or strengthened to create positive local transformation across California. All of these resources may be found on OPR's webpage General Plan Guidelines page
