What is the Communities 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 Crest Forest Communities Plan / Action Guide.

The Communities Plan / Action Guide sets forth the Communities’ values and aspirations, and provides an action plan to help Crest Forest continue to grow into the type of community that current and future residents desire. The action plan places a focus on self-reliance, grass-roots action, and implementation, allowing the Communities to take the lead in moving actions forward.

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

PC Workshop

WORKSHOP WITH PLANNING COMMISSION

County staff will present community input on potential land use map revisions to the Planning Commission at a workshop in November 2016. The workshop presentation will also include a discussion of the values and aspirations identified by attendees at the community workshops.

No official action will be taken at this workshop, as it is intended to present the community’s input on existing and potential land use based on outreach conducted to date.  Any official map changes will still need to be evaluated through an environmental impact report (EIR).  The EIR is estimated to be completed in 2018, with public hearings following later in 2018.

What is the Community Plan?

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

The Community Plan / Action Guide sets forth the Community’s values and aspirations, and provides an action plan to help Bloomington continue to grow into the type of community that current and future residents desire. The action plan places a focus on self-reliance, grass-roots action, and implementation, allowing the Community to take the lead in moving actions forward.

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