Planning has played a vital role in the City of Folsom, and has shaped the vibrant, family-oriented community we know today. As mandated by state law, California cities must have a General Plan that outlines land use and development policies, objectives and standards. The City of Folsom is currently updating its General Plan— a blueprint for how the City will deal with a changing world over the next 20 years.
