MV2040 GOALS & COMMUNITY VALUES

The two primary goals of the General Plan remain the same as established in the 1989 General Plan, and are:
1. To protect and enhance the natural beauty and small town character of Mill Valley; and
2. To encourage continued diversity of housing, income levels and lifestyles in the community.

The General Plan community values are intended to guide the overall framework and decision making for the General Plan, and have been updated based on community input and feedback from the General Plan Advisory Committee.
