HAYWARD -- Over the past 18 months, city staff members asked residents what they want Hayward to look like over the next 25 years, and they will share the results at an open house Saturday.
The general plan, often called a blueprint for future growth and development, guides the city in making day-to-day decisions.
To update the plan, city staff members led public workshops and Planning Commission and City Council study sessions. It also launched an online community forum, www.Hayward2040.org.
Topics covered include land use, mobility, housing, safety, hazards, education, natural resources, health, quality of life and public facilities.
At the open house, from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Hayward employees will be on hand to answer questions and give short presentations every 45 minutes. The open house will be in the City Hall Rotunda, 777 B St.
The city also will hold public meetings and hearings with the Planning Commission and City Council in the next few months. For more details, go to www.hayward-ca.gov/generalplan.
