General Plan

About the General Plan

The Town's General Plan is the overarching document that guides the growth and development of Tiburon over the next 20 years, addressing issues like land use, housing, open space, conservation, parks and recreation, transportation, and environmental hazards. The General Plan lays out policies that will shape how the Town will look and feel in the future, and is created with plenty of public input. Tiburon's most recent general plan was adopted on May 22, 2023, entitled Tiburon 2040, which is available below. 

Tiburon 2040 was developed with the purpose and intent to plan for the future while preserving key characteristics of Tiburon. Tiburon 2040 was shaped by the following guiding principles, which served as touchstones during the process for developing and refining goals, policies, and programs:

  • Mobility
  • Healthy Lifestyles
