Dixon General Plan Community Survey Results

The City's General Plan consultant, Dyett and Bhatia, has completed the compilation and analysis of the General Plan Issues Community Survey recently circulated to the community. The City received 282 completed survey forms, representing responses from almost 5% of Dixon households.

The survey will help to inform decisions as to the Vision and Guiding Principles for preparation of the new General Plan, which will guide Dixon's development in to the future for the next two decades.

The consultant is currently preparing a draft Vision Statement and Guiding Principles for the General Plan and these items will be brought to a meeting of the General Plan Advisory Committee in February and to a workshop session of the Planning Commission and City Council.
