City of Hayward - Heart of the Bay

On July 1, 2014, the City Council approved the Hayward 2040 General Plan and certified the Final General Plan Environmental Impact Report. The plan provides a community-based vision for the future of the Hayward community, and identifies a variety of goals, policies, and implementation programs to advance the vision. The 2040 General Plan was prepared with the help of local citizens, a General Plan Update Task Force, community groups, businesses, and partnering organizations. The City of Hayward would like to thank all members of the Hayward community for participating in the process and preparing a comprehensive and innovative plan for the future of Hayward.

Coming Soon: Web-Based General Plan!
