LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL’S DIGEST

AB 229, as introduced, Chang. General plan: proposed public works.

The Planning and Zoning Law requires a city, county, or city and county to adopt a comprehensive general plan that addresses a number of elements. If a general plan has been adopted, each county or city officer, department, board, or commission, as specified, is required to submit a list of proposed public works for the ensuing fiscal year. The agency receiving the list of proposed public works is required to prepare, as specified, a coordinated program of proposed public works for the ensuing fiscal year.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
