The General Plan provides overall guidance for the physical development of the City, and specific plans are used to provide more detailed regulatory guidance for special areas or large developments within the City. Specific plans generally comprise a land use plan, circulation plan, development standards, design guidelines, phasing plan, infrastructure plan (water, sewer, or drainage), and implementation plan, pursuant to California Governmental Code Sections 65450 through 65457. They are typically implemented as customized zoning for a particular area of the City and are generally used for large-scale projects that require a comprehensive approach to planning and infrastructure issues.
The City of Menifee has adopted three Specific Plans; however, many Specific Plans in the City were approved prior to the City’s incorporation and we are working on creating electronic versions of those plans and making those available on this page. All of the City’s Specific Plans are available to be viewed at the Community Development Department located at City Hall.
Copies of the Specific Plans are available to be copied or mailed at the expense of the requestor. Please contact the City Clerk’s Office or file a public records request to obtain a copy.
