Dixon General Plan Community Survey Results

The City’s General Plan consultant, Dyett and Bhatia, has completed the compilation and analysis of the General Plan Issues Community Survey recently circulated to the community. The City received 282 completed survey forms, representing responses from almost 5% of Dixon households.

The survey helped to inform decisions as to the Vision and Guiding Principles for preparation of the new General Plan, which will guide Dixon’s development in to the future for the next two decades.

The consultant prepared a draft Vision Statement and Guiding Principles for the General Plan and  the Planning Commission and City Council reviewed and endorsed the Vision Statement and Guiding Principles.

The survey results compilation and analysis (PDF) is available to read.
