Purpose of the Workshop
The Community Plans Team will present potential land use map revisions proposed by each community. The presentation will also include a discussion of the values and aspirations identified by attendees at the community workshops.
The Planning Commission will not take a formal action at the workshop, but will have the chance to comment on the proposed map revisions to be evaluated in land use modeling and environmental analysis for the Countywide Plan.
Feedback from the Planning Commission and comments from the public will be summarized for review at a similar workshop planned for the Board of Supervisors later in the year. Final Land Use Map revisions will occur with adoption of the Countywide Plan in 2018.
The County Of San Bernardino, in coordination with County residents, is developing a Community Plans Continuum to update existing Community Plans and create new plans throughout the County. Over the past six months, the County has held 36 public workshops for the 12 communities with Detailed Plans. As part of the workshop activities, community residents identified community values, problem areas and recommended revisions to the land use designations in their respective communities.
Detailed Plan communities where land use changes were considered include: Bear Valley, Bloomington, Crest Forest, Hilltop Communities, Helendale, Joshua Tree, Lake Arrowhead, Lucerne Valley, Mentone, Muscoy, Oak Glen, and Phelan/Pinion Hills.
Interested persons may submit comments or questions in writing prior to the workshop or appear in person and be heard at the time of workshop.
On or before October 28th, related discussion materials may be viewed on the Land Use Services Planning website online at http://cms.sbcounty.gov/lus/Planning/PlanningCommission.aspx, or at the County Government Center Land Use Services, 385 N. Arrowhead Ave., First Floor, San Bernardino, CA from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. If review is desired in person, staff requests you call the department at (909) 387-8311 to set up a time to review the materials.
