VENTURA—The public is invited to attend and provide input at the joint Ventura County Board of Supervisors/Planning Commission Work Session No. 3 on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 at 1:30 P.M., on the General Plan Update Alternatives Report. The work session will be held at the County Government Center, Hall of Administration, Board of Supervisors’ Hearing Room, 800 S. Victoria Avenue, Ventura, CA 93009.

This will be the first of two work sessions to discuss the Alternatives Report, a document that explores different options for how the County could accommodate future growth and policy alternatives, such as agriculture, climate change, housing, and economic development through 2040.

During this work session, Planning Division staff and project consultants will present the report’s first six chapters to the Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission which include the Introduction, Vision and Guiding Principles, Proposed General Plan Organization, Development Constraints, Development Capacity, and Historic Population Growth Rates and 2020-2040 Growth Projections.

A second work session on the Alternatives Report chapters seven through nine, which will include the Alternatives Evaluation, Land Use Alternatives, and Policy Choices, will be presented to the Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission later this fall.

Inquiries on this item may be directed to Susan Curtis, General Plan Update Manager, at (805) 654-2497 or via e-mail to susan.curtis@ventura.org. The Board letter will be available on Thursday, July 26th.

Victoria Ave., Ventura, CA, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
