GILROY—Planning commissioners want compact development over the next 20 years, not sprawling, urban expansion.
Since October 2013, a group of 25-community members, consultants under a $1.75 million contract with the City and planning staff have been developing Gilroy's vision for growth through the creation of a new 20-year General Plan.
City Council is gearing up for their meeting Monday night, where they will discuss a $115,000 budget amendment from the general fund to go toward landscape maintenance that will maintain Gilroy Sports Park at the southern edge of the city, which hasn’t been maintained by the city since 2009.
