Yolo County 2030 General Plan

SACOG Salutes! Award Winner Blueprint Excellence

The Yolo County 2030 General Plan approaches growth by providing for the management of the county’s most valuable tangible asset, agricultural land. The plan designates more than 97 percent of the unincorporated area for agriculture and open space, creates a new Agricultural District in Clarksburg, and specifies the expansion of the local food system and the diversification of the local agricultural economy. Yolo County’s plan also calls for mixed-use zoning, a range of housing choices, infill development, growth boundaries and buffer zones, and improved transportation infrastructure. An inspiring example of rural-urban connections, the Yolo County 2030 General Plan integrates agriculture, open space conservation, local food systems, transportation, housing, commercial development, employment and economic growth into a blueprint for a healthy and prosperous future.
