Title

GENERAL PLAN CIRCULATION ELEMENT UPDATE (PA2017-141)

Site Location: Citywide

Recommendation

 

Summary:

 

An amendment to the Newport Beach General Plan incorporating changes to the Circulation Element. The proposed update is a comprehensive statement of the City’s transportation and mobility policies and serves as a guide for implementation of these policies.
