The Ventura County General Plan Update is an opportunity for residents to direct the policies of the communities in which they live in by using their comments and perspectives to shape the County’s long-range policy decisions for unincorporated Ventura County from 2020 to 2040.

The County of Ventura is working on a comprehensive update to its General Plan for the first time in almost 30 years. County staff are working to make the update process open and accessible to anyone who wants to be involved and share ideas. The General Plan Update will help shape the next 20 years of Ventura County’s growth and change. The outcome of the update will have a real impact on the quality of life in the County. Some of the questions we will be addressing include:

  • How can the County enhance public services and infrastructure?
  • Where should new residential and commercial development be located?
  • How will the County deal with its continuing water quality and quantity challenges?
