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?
