Revised Policy Plan, Land Use Plan, and Community Action Guides released for public review!

Between the 2018 regional meetings and April 2019, the County received hundreds of public comments on the draft policy and community planning documents. This public input led to additional research, discussions with key stakeholders, and direct revisions to the planning documents.

While many substantive changes were made, the County was not able to accommodate everyone’s requests — generally due to a conflict with state law, local policy, other community input, infrastructure capacity, and/or County direction.  Thank you to everyone who gave their thoughts and opinions, submitted written comments and requests, and/or provided new sources of information.

The latest version of the Policy Plan, including the policy maps and reference maps, and the Community Action Guides are the final draft plans that will be presented to the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors. Although the County will continue to accept and respond to public comments regarding these documents, the most recent draft Policy Plan forms the basis for the analysis contained in the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR); we are therefore restricted from making any significant changes to those planning documents. If County staff believe that, based on public comments, additional changes to the Policy Plan are warranted, then those changes will be brought forward in the staff report to the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors, along with an analysis of their impact on the DEIR.

Revised Draft Land Use Map Available!

As part of the Countywide Plan, the County of San Bernardino is making maps simpler, streamlining minor land use changes, and protecting and informing the public on more substantial changes.  The County also made minor land use revisions based on the public’s input during the 2017 regional open houses and EIR scoping meetings.

New Surveys for Framework & Foundation Community Plan Workshops!

The County recently conducted public workshops in 15 communities as part of an effort to establish and update Framework & Foundation Community Plans.  During these workshops, we asked attendees to tell us about their community — both as they see it today and how they see it in the future.  The survey links below are for those who were unable to attend these workshops, or for those who attended but had additional thoughts and ideas.

Click here to take Survey #1 for Workshop 1 in Oaks Hills, Baker, Wrightwood, El Mirage, Oro Grande, Newberry Springs, Daggett, and Yermo.

Click here to take Survey #2 for Workshop 2 in Mt Baldy, Morongo Valley, Homestead Valley, Angelus Oaks, San Antonio Heights, Pioneertown, and Lytle Creek.

Responses to these surveys will be considered alongside the input we received for each community during the workshops.  Have other questions or don’t see your community listed above?  Click here to see if your community is addressed by a Community Plan.

These surveys will remain open until Thursday, January 27th, 2017.
