The City of Mill Valley produced the Mill Valley 2040 General Plan Workbook to aid the discussion process in its General Plan update. The workbook describes existing conditions and trends as well as opportunities and constraints. While a lot of General Plan updates include workbooks, the Mill Valley workbook is particularly engaging, and has been met with a very positive response from the public.
