What goes into the General Plan?

State law requires that a general plan cover at least eight mandated topics: Land Use, Circulation, Housing, Conservation, Open Space, Noise, Safety, and Environmental Justice. General plans may also address other topics that are important to the community. Chino's General Plan includes optional chapters (called "elements") addressing economic development, air quality, and public health.
