ABOUT THE COUNTYWIDE PLAN AND COMMUNITY PLANS
From 2010 to 2011, the creation of a Countywide Vision included input from over 100 topical experts, 25 special districts and agencies, 18 community meetings, and over 3,600 resident surveys. In 2015, the County launched the preparation of the first Countywide Plan, which is being developed over the course of three years to enhance coordination with the public, with outside agencies and organizations, and within the County organization itself. It will serve as a resource for efficient and effective decision-making regarding countywide services and resources.
The Countywide Plan effort includes updating and creating new Community Plans Continuum to guide local expectations for County services and set clear direction for the future of specified unincorporated communities. Within this continuum, Fundamental Plans are created for communities that are primarily characterized by open space or farmland with a scattering of residential homes and/or highway commercial uses, or an area where growth is constrained by adjacent land ownership, such as federal lands and state park lands.
The ongoing civic engagement process for the Countywide Plan has included over 75 public meetings in dozens of communities, attracting over 2,000 participants.
