On September 15, 2020, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors adopted the 2040 General Plan and certified the project’s Environmental Impact Report and related documents. The adopted 2040 General Plan becomes effective on October 15, 2020, thirty (30) days following its adoption by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors.

The General Plan, which is mandated by State law, sets forth the goals, policies, and programs the County will implement to manage future growth and land uses. The General Plan, adopted by the Board of Supervisors, embodies the vision for the future of unincorporated Ventura County.
