[ARCHIVED] Envision Contra Costa 2040



The Draft Contra Costa County 2045 General Plan is the County’s primary policy tool to guide physical changes in the unincorporated areas of the county over the next 20 years. It serves as the basis for planning- and infrastructure-related decisions made by County staff and decision makers. It is built around the themes of environmental justice, community health, economic development, and sustainability.

The Draft 2024 CAP is the County’s strategic plan to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to adapt to changing climate conditions, such as heat, flooding, droughts, and wildfires, in the unincorporated areas of the county. The 2024 CAP implements the General Plan’s policy guidance and addresses behaviors, regulations, and investment decisions that directly reduce GHG emissions or promote climate resilience.

Community member feedback has been the driving force behind these planning efforts. County staff have held over 125 meetings with community members, advocates, stakeholders, and officials. This collaborative effort, including over 50 community meetings and over 20 with community-based organizations, has shaped the shared vision for Contra Costa County. Now, in the final stages, residents are invited to explore the plans and ensure they reflect the community’s collective aspirations for Contra Costa County’s future.

You can view the plans and provide comments on the project website:

The public review and comment period for the Draft General Plan and Climate Action Plan 2024 Update will extend through January 31, 2024.
