Community Plan Workshops

The County of San Bernardino recently began the update of the 14 Community Plans and the preparation of an additional 13 new Community Plans. Most of the existing Community Plans were approved in 2007. The first community plan workshops in 11 communities began in late February with additional workshops in late March and mid-July. Over 200 people participated to provide the County with information regarding their communities. The remaining 15 communities will have workshops in late 2016 or early 2017. You may follow the workshops for your community by visiting the project website and clicking on the name of your community.

The Countywide Plan

The County of San Bernardino has launched an exciting new effort to go further than any county or city has ever gone with a general plan before by creating the Web-Based Countywide Plan. San Bernardino County’s General Plan, last updated in 2007, will go well beyond a traditional general plan to become a comprehensive Countywide Plan that complements and informs the Countywide Vision by taking into account all services—not just land-use planning—provided by County Government, and the unique values and priorities of each unincorporated community. It will serve as a guide for County decision-making, financial planning, and communications.
