Redlands Community Visioning, and General Plan and EIR
Redlands is a distinctive city in an increasingly homogenizing Inland Empire region. It has livable neighborhoods, exquisitely crafted historical buildings, defined edges, and distinctive landforms. Redlanders are also passionate about planning, as evidenced by a variety of planning-related measures passed in recent years.
Dyett & Bhatia was selected by the city to lead community visioning and prepared a Strategic Plan for a comprehensive General Plan update. D&B facilitated stakeholder and community meetings, City Council/Planning Commission workshops, and prepared a citywide mail-in survey. Outreach was complemented with technical review of the General Plan and evaluation of broader regional trends. The project culminated in recommendations on vision and key themes for the comprehensive General Plan and Zoning Ordinance Update.
The City in a separate solicitation subsequently selected D&B for Phase 2—General Plan and Zoning Ordinance Update. D&B also completed Redlands’ previous General Plan and the last two Housing Element updates.
