Morongo Basin Strategic Plan for Culture and
LUS Planning is in the early stages of
developing a Strategic Plan for Culture and the Arts for the Morongo
Basin. The communit
residents, artists, educators, and culture-oriented organizations and
businesses throughout the Morongo Basin will be asked to participate. The
County of San Bernardino will lead the effort along with The Cultural Planning
Group, a Southern California consulting firm specializing in the field of arts
and culture with experience working with communities across the country to
create cultural plans.
The plan will assist Morongo Basin communities including Morongo Valley, Pioneertown, Landers,
Joshua Tree, and Wonder Valley as well as the cities of Yucca Valley and
Twentynine Palms to articulate their vision for culture and the arts.
A website devoted to the Plan for community
engagement is being developed and will be up and running soon. Social
media links and announcements will also be forthcoming.
To receive future announcements on how to become involved, submit an email address expressing interest to Linda.Mawby@lus.sbcounty.gov. and follow us on social media:

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.
