Draft Oro Grande Community Action Guide

  • Introduction
  • Maps & Links
  • Oro Grande

    In 2016, the community embarked on a new community planning process. Two public workshops, open to any community resident, or business, or property owner, addressed strengths and weaknesses of the community, the community’s values, and what the community aspires to be in the future. Participants brainstormed areas of focus and actions to help the community move forward to achieve its aspirations.

    In October 2017, the results were released for public review as a draft community plan. In response to public comments, the plans were renamed Community Action Guides. This name change along with other revisions that resulted from the public review are incorporated in the 2018 Draft Community Action Guide, available in PDF format. The 2019 Draft Community Action Guide reflects changes made in response to public comments on the 2018 Draft.

    The final format of the Community Plan will be web-based. The PDF version of the Draft Community Plan is provided as a courtesy for simplifying public review, but may not be available once the online version of the plan is finalized.

Final Round of Community Plan Workshops Scheduled

The County wants to hear from you!

Over the past eight months, the Countywide Plan team has been visiting various unincorporated communities meeting with people and learning more about what people value about where they live and work. To date, more than 1,000 people have attended Countywide Plan workshops and shared their ideas about the future of their communities. The County has received thousands of comments on community values, local issues, and ways to make improvements.

Starting this November and running through January 2017, the County will be out in the field again soliciting feedback from eight unincorporated communities (see below), with two workshops conducted in each community.  The first workshop for these communities is scheduled for November or December with the second workshops scheduled for January.  The County will update existing Community Plans or create new plans based on local input.

Visit countywideplan.com/cp for meeting locations, additional information, and to sign up for email updates.

ABOUT THE COUNTYWIDE PLAN AND COMMUNITY PLANS

In 2011, the Board of Supervisors adopted a Countywide Vision and 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 includes a Community Plan program to guide local expectations for County services and set clear direction for the future of specified unincorporated communities.

What is the Community Plan / Action Guide?

As part of the major effort to create a Countywide Plan, San Bernardino County is working with residents, businesses, and organizations to develop the Oro Grande Community Plan / Action Guide.

The Community Plan / Action Guidesets forth the Community’s values and aspirations, and provides an action plan to help Oro Grande continue to grow into the type of community that current and future residents desire.

Goals, policies, land use, and infrastructure decisions will be addressed in the Policy Plan of the Countywide Plan.
