to Burbank2035! The Planning Division updated the General Plan, a "blueprint" for growth required
for all cities and counties in California. Nicknamed Burbank2035, its
goals and policies affect a wide range of issues including housing,
traffic circulation and mobility, parks and recreation, resource
conservation, and public safety. Burbank2035 anticipates and plans for
change occurring in the community, and should be continually revised to
be meaningful and relevant based on the current state of the community,
with an eye toward the future.
Although parts of the plan have been revised through the years,
Burbank's General Plan has not been comprehensively updated since the
mid-1960s. In that time, both the City and
the surrounding influences of Southern California have
experience massive growth and environmental,
physical, economic, social, and demographic changes.
Due to the changing times, some community priorities have also shifted
Burbank2035 will enable the City to better define its image and
position within the region, allow businesses to better compete in the
local and regional marketplace, maintain valued community character,
address local and regional environmental concerns, and provide a
superior quality of life for Burbank residents.
