The County of Ventura Planning Division has released several key documents for the ongoing General Plan
Update project. They include a Draft Background Report, an Assets, Issues and Opportunities Summary and a
General Plan Update Newsletter.
The Draft Background Report describes existing conditions in the unincorporated County, including
demographics and economics, land use, health and well-being, transportation and mobility, public facilities,
services and infrastructure, natural resources, water resources, hazards and safety, and climate change.
General Plan Update Manager Susan Curtis notes that, "this report will be used to inform the process as the
project moves forward."
The Assets, Issues and Opportunities Summary describes thousands of public comments received by
Planning Division staff during outreach activities that took place between April and September 2016.
Outreach activities included 12 community workshops, a booth at the Ventura County Fair, an online
questionnaire, and meetings with subject-matter experts on issues ranging from agriculture to climate
change. The General Plan Update Newsletter profiles the project, describes community outreach conducted
to date, summarizes the project timeline and includes answers to frequently asked questions.
The County is now soliciting public comments on the Draft Background Report. Both the Draft Background
Report and Assets, Issues and Opportunities Summary will be presented to the Ventura County Planning
Commission at a public General Plan Update work session later this Spring. Comments may be submitted in
