Bakersfield 2045 General Plan Update

Welcome to the City of Bakersfield 2045 General Plan Update website! We know better decisions are made when information is easily accessible and our community provides input throughout the process. As the process moves forward, this website will be your primary source for access to all materials related to the 2045 General Plan update. The website will host project documents, meeting dates and times, information on the basics of the general plan process, and provide the community with ways to contribute ideas to help the City develop a roadmap for the future.
