by William Fulton and Paul Shigley
Since it was first published in 1991, Guide to California Planning has served as the authoritative text on city and county planning practice throughout the state.
In this revised and expanded fifth edition, William Fulton and Paul Shigley lay out planning laws and processes in detail and describe how planning really works in California—how cities and counties and developers and citizen groups all interact with each other on a daily basis to shape California communities and the California landscape, for better and for worse. Significant new topics addressed in this edition include the state’s increasing focus on infill and transit-oriented development and climate action plans, including ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Since the publication of The General Plan in California in late 2015, there have been several changes to California law in respect to General Plan preparation. This Addendum, prepared by author David Early, documents the following additions to the law:
- New General Plan Guidelines
- Senate Bill 379
- Senate Bill 1000
- Senate Bill 32
- 2017 Housing Bills

Navigating the California Coastal Act, by Jana Zimmer
During her thirty years working with the California Coastal Act, Jana Zimmer often wished that there were a book to guide her through the Coastal Act process. Now she has written that book.
Navigating the California Coastal Act, the latest publication from Solano Press Books, is the only book that provides a comprehensive but concise overview and guide to practice under the California Coastal Act.
The book reflects both a love of the coast, and a love of the law, and is enhanced by extraordinary photography, courtesy of Reeve Woolpert, and the artwork of the author.
Kindle e-book edition coming soon.
