Mill Valley 2040 (MV2040) General Plan is a visionary, long range document that guides and directs the City in terms of implementing policies, programs and resources. The policies and programs identified in the General Plan are based on the City’s expressed values and vision of the community relating to the physical, social, environmental and economic character of the community. The City’s General Plan was last adopted in 2013 and serves as a basis for decisions that affect all aspects of our community’s daily lives such as transportation, land use, streets and infrastructure, parks, housing and neighborhoods, recreation and community facilities, downtown, the environment, public health and safety, education, and flooding.
