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.

We are revising the draft Community Plans to include your feedback!

Thank you to those who provided comments on their Community Plan to County Staff by the December 15th Deadline!

We will make changes to the draft Community Plans based on these comments and upload new draft Community Plans in mid-2018.

We will still accept comments.

We will continue to take your comments, but cannot guarantee they will make it into the next draft Community Plans.  If not, we will have them for the second and final round of changes (anticipated in late 2018).

The best way to provide comments is to use the feedback form on your plan’s webpage to submit your comments online (left or bottom part of the screen). Click here for links to your Community Plan webpage.  However, you can also use the general online feedback form and email addresses provided on the Contact Us page.

The newsletter provides a quick update on the project, highlights public input from regional and environmental scoping meetings, illustrates where growth is planned over the next 20+ years, and explains next steps for the EIR (environmental impact report).

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR INPUT! 

As you know, the past two years included 75 public meetings with communities, agencies, businesses, and organizations to better plan and improve our county. Public feedback generated numerous land use changes, adjustments in policy direction, and refinements to Community Plans.  Below are key deadlines for public input on two aspects of the Countywide Plan.  The next opportunity for formal public input will occur later in 2018 when we release the draft Policy Plan and draft EIR.

  • December 15, 2017 | Draft Community Plans. Public comments are due on Draft Community Plans (look for revised Plans in early 2018).  Visit countywideplan.com/cp to view draft Community Plans and provide input.
  • December 31, 2017 | Regional Open House Survey. There is still time for you to tell us what is important to you as we update County policies.  Visit countywideplan.com/surveys to take the survey.

We encourage you to share this newsletter with friends, family and colleagues so that they can keep up with the process, too! Click the image below to read the full newsletter.

Newsletters will be prepared periodically so that we can provide you updates with project progress and highlights at key milestones in the process.  Have suggestions for articles or topics for future newsletters? Let us know! CountywidePlan@lus.sbcounty.gov

Will the County extend the 30-day review and comment period?

No, the County does not plan on extending the 30-day period to receive comments on the proposed scope of the EIR.  The County is preparing a comprehensive EIR, which means that all 18 environmental topics included in the Appendix G CEQA Checklist will be addressed.  Additionally, the County and its consultants must start the technical studies as soon as possible to remain on schedule.

Will the County still accept comments beyond Nov. 20th?

Yes, the County will continue to accept comments throughout the preparation of the EIR.  However, comments on the NOP and scope of the EIR that are submitted after the 30-day review period may not be formally documented in the EIR.

Yes, the County anticipates releasing the draft EIR around mid-2018.  The public review and comment period for the draft EIR will be a minimum of 45 days per state law.
