The General Plan is currently being updated. Please visit the Mill Valley 2040 - General Plan Update homepage for more information.
The Mill Valley General Plan, which was adopted by the City Council by Resolution 89-49 on December 18, 1989, was intended to guide the City's inevitable change during the 1990's and beyond and, in doing so, to protect the community's small town character, scenic beauty and population diversity.
General plans are required by state law, and must meet detailed legal requirements. This Plan complies with all of them, and provides extensive analysis and detailed statements of its policies. It is thus intended to be, in part, a guide book for those wishing to develop or change the use of or modify existing buildings. At the same time this Plan is intended to do much more than merely meet the legal requirements or be a development handbook. It is intended to be a statement of how the citizens of Mill Valley view their community, how they want it to be in the future, and, most importantly, how they intend to deal with the planning and development issues facing the community.
Please note that some of the Figures, Tables and the large-scale Land Use Map are not currently available in the online version. Copies of the complete General Plan can be found at City Hall. If you would like a complete, bound document, containing all Figures and Tables, copies can be purchased at City Hall for $30.00.
