Description:
Abstract:
This data is a collection of the land uses found in the general plans of the cities and counties of the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area for 2006. Attributes associated with the file include the original planned land use designation, as defined by the local jurisdiction, and generalized land uses grouped by category.

Purpose:
To provide a single-source overview of how all the jurisdictions in the region are planning their future land uses. When compared to subsequent versions of this dataset, it can also be used to measure changes in how jurisdictions decide to plan for the future.
