Focused General Plan Update 2023


The General Plan for the City of Dinuba is a policy document that provides guidance about the growth and development of the community. The current comprehensive General Plan was adopted in 2008 and contains the following nine elements:

  • Land Use Element
  • Circulation Element
  • Open Space, Conservation, and Recreation Element
  • Urban Boundary Element
  • Urban Design Element
  • Noise Element
  • Public Services and Facilities Element
  • Safety Element
  • Housing Element

In 2021, the City of Dinuba began the process of a Focused General Plan Update to the City’s Land Use and Circulation Elements of the General Plan. The update is titled “focused” since it is not a comprehensive update of all the elements of the general plan, but rather a focused analysis of a few growth areas and community topics that are discussed in the Land Use and Circulation Elements of the General Plan. The main components of the ongoing Focused General Plan Update include:

  • Provide new residential areas around the area of the proposed high school at the corner of Kamm and Alta Avenues.
  • Look at policies that encourage more mixed-uses (commercial and residential) in the downtown core and other commercial areas of the community.
  • Pursue recommended zoning changes to allow a combination of residential and commercial areas in the East El Monte Way area.
  • Implement safety improvements at key City intersections and improve alternative modes of circulation throughout the City.
  • Prepare an Environmental Justice section that includes new goals, policies, and programs that promote equitable environmental health for all communities.

The release of the Public Review Draft of the Focused General Plan update is anticipated in March-April of 2023. This document and associated information with the update will be posted on the City’s website as they are prepared.
