Land Use Alternatives


The Land Use Alternatives are models of different options for the city’s growth. They show different ways to achieve the community’s Vision for the future and to address opportunities and constraints identified by the community. This page will be updated with links to videos, presentations, and engagement results throughout the Land Use Alternatives phase of the General Plan Update. For technical information on the Land Use Alternatives, see the Technical Memorandum, Alternatives Analysis, and Fiscal Analysis.

Land Use Alternatives Survey

The City of Santa Maria invited the community to share thoughts on the Land Use Alternatives by completing the Land Use Alternatives Survey. This feedback will be used to help the City Council establish land use policy in the General Plan. The Survey was available on this website from April 5, 2023 until May 2, 2023. Survey results are summarized in the Preferred Alternative Memorandum.
