Fundamental Communities Survey – Closed

The County needs your input!

Take our survey

As part of the Countywide Plan and Community Plan / Action Guide efforts, the County of San Bernardino is creating Fundamental Plans / Action Guides for communities throughout the county. (Click here for a list of communities that will benefit from Fundamental Plans).

The County is not proposing land use or other changes that would encourage growth in these areas; the Fundamental Plans / Action Guides are intended to help guide Community-driven initiatives that will help each Community to embody their own values and aspirations.

No one knows your Community better than you do, so please click the link above to take our survey.

The County will use your input to develop Community Profiles, document Community information, and craft a road map for Community-driven actions that will help your Community maintain values and enact desired changes.

This survey will remain open until March 30th, 2018.

Wonder Valley Action Guide

  • Introduction
  • Maps & Links
  • Wonder Valley Community Center

    In 2016, the County embarked on a planning process to update the fourteen existing Community Plans and create over 30 new plans for approximately 80 unincorporated communities. The strategic system of community planning is called the Community Planning Continuum with a continuum of plan-types to provide planning tools and resources to match local conditions and needs. The plan-types are Detailed, Framework, Foundation and Fundamental.

    Wonder Valley is a Fundamental community. An online survey was available for five months in early 2018. The survey requested information about communities including Values, Aspirations, Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, local organizations and local history (see Appendix A). The survey information was reviewed to create this Community Action Plan. The Community Action Guides are a framework of actions identified by the community and supports implementation of the actions by the community.
