Existing Community Plans Get a New Look!

The Countywide Plan process touches upon many facets of the County’s operations, including governance tools such as Community Plans.  Historically, Community Plans have guided the future use, character and distinctive identity of a community and outlined how the County should manage future growth.

As part of the Countywide Plan preparation, we have taken a fresh look at the purpose and functionality of these documents and have enhanced them by adding new content that also makes them more action-oriented.

In doing so, the new content will refine the way the current community plans are organized.  Although the plans will have a somewhat new look, communities with existing plans can be assured that pertinent information from the existing plans will be carried forward into the new plan, shaped by the input received during community workshops over the past several months.

The new organization of the Community Plan documents is intended provide the County and community with more effective tools for future decision making.  We have created a graphic to illustrate how the new community plans will look in comparison to the existing plans.

To see if your community has an existing plan that will be updated, or to see if a new community plan will be created for your area, click here.

Second round of Community Plan workshops coming up!

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 September and running through January 2017, the County will be out in the field again soliciting feedback from 15 additional unincorporated communities, with two workshops conducted in each community. The first workshop for the first seven communities have been scheduled for September with the second workshops scheduled for November (see below).  The County will update existing Community Plans or create new plans based on local input.

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.

The very first issue of the Countywide Connection has been released! Newsletters will be prepared periodically over the next few years so that we can provide you updates with project progress and highlights at key milestones in the process.

The focus of this newsletter is community outreach. As you know, over the past year we have been out in the community gathering ideas, input, and recommendations to be considered as we prepare the Countywide Plan. The newsletter explains the process, provides excerpts of input we’ve received so far, identifies upcoming outreach efforts, and provides an overview of the schedule of next steps in the Countywide Plan process.

Future newsletters may include topics such as: how we grow, how we get around, how to improve County services, and how to create a more effective County government.

We encourage you to take a look at what we’ve done so far, and 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.
