The City of Chico is the proper name for the municipal government of Chico. The offices of the City of Chico are in the Chico Municipal Center. The City is in the process of updating the General Plan, which may guide Chico's growth and development through 2030. The City encourages all citizens to get involved to help shape this new plan.
