Fillmore/Santa Paula Community Meeting - VC GenPlan Update: - Vision & Guiding Principles

Is clean air and water important in Fillmore & Santa Paula?

Do you support environmental justice throughout Ventura County? 


Should Ventura County create a green, healthy and forward thinking land use policy over the next two decades? 

Come tell Ventura County Planning what your priorities are for land use where you live, work and play. 

Public Meeting details:  the Ventura County Planning Department is going to host a public workshop to receive input from the local community. 

This meeting focuses on the setting the "Vision & Guiding Principles" as the planning department prepares to begin the environmental review portion and then moving into drafting the new General Plan document. 

NOW is the time to let your local planning agency know you want the land use constitution for the county to make

clean water and clean air for all

the top priority for land use decisions over the next 20 years. 

Action Items: 

1) RSVP to attend the meeting on Saturday, July 29.

If you agree - come prepared to tell the County that you support CFROG's request for an Environmental Justice principle in the Guiding Principles. CFROG recommended the following: 

  1. An Environmental Justice principle must be added to the list of Guiding principles which states that the County seeks to ensure the protection of residents in disadvantaged communities from disproportionate burdens related to pollution, noxious industries, and risks of environmental hazards, (Health and Safety).
  2. The public health principle should incorporate environmental justice concerns by being revised as follows: Promote economic, social, and physical health and wellness by encouraging walking and biking; ensuring equitable access to parks, public transit, and healthy foods; and integrating Health in All Policies into the built environment. (Healthy Communities)

2) Share with your friends - bring your neighbors.

3) If you are unable to attend, send your comments to Project Manager for the GenPlan Update project manager. (805) 654-2497. 

It is vital the county hear that clean air and water for all is important to YOU. And that you support the end of sacrifice zones in Ventura County. Environmental Justice for all! Tell VC you want those tenets included in the Vision & Guiding Principles.
