General Plan Update

The General Plan is a long-range planning document that is considered the City’s “constitution” or blueprint, because it guides growth, traffic patterns, housing, and resource conservation. The website linked below provides the latest information on the General Plan Update process.

Milpitas Parks and Recreation Master Plan

A Parks and Recreation Master Plan is a strategic document that studies the existing park system, as well as facilities and recreation programming. It also identifies a planning blueprint to improve, protect, and expand the City's network of parks, facilities, and recreational services for the future.

The Parks and Recreation Master Plan will provide both a long-term vision for the City's park system, and specific policies and standards to direct day-to-day decisions. It will set forth a framework that will allow the City to respond to new opportunities as they arise, and to ensure that adequate parks, facilities, and recreation programs meet the needs of the City's future residents, employees, and visitors.

Milpitas Metro Specific Plan

The City is now working to update the vision for the neighborhood surrounding the new BART Station to reflect current realities and needs. The plan will be called the Milpitas Metro Plan. It will shape the continued the transformation of this area from industrial and auto-oriented to a vibrant, transit-oriented community that includes housing, retail, entertainment, commercial and park spaces, and a safe and attractive pedestrian and bicycle network.
