Specific Plan

SRTS Toolkit

A specific plan is a tool to help implement the general plan. A city or county may prepare a specific plan for an area within its jurisdiction to provide a greater level of detail than is typically included in the general plan.  Specific plans may be helpful for implementing smart growth, complete streets, and other types of sustainable development.
