Preferred 2050 General Plan Land Use Plan Approved by City Council

At its regular meeting on February 2nd, 2022, Moorpark’s City Council approved a preferred Land Use Plan, a critical milestone in the update of the City’s General Plan. Made by Moorpark over a series of three citywide workshops, four interactive online activities and eleven meetings of the General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC), the Plan designates the high-level land uses that will be permitted on all properties in the City. The majority of uses throughout the City are expected to remain unchanged from their current use through 2050. The following materials were considered by the City Council:

The preferred Land Use Plan confirmed by the City Council will be utilized to project the realistic buildout of the 2050 General Plan. Those development projections will be used to analyze the potential environmental impacts of the Plan in the General Plan Program Environmental Impact Report (EIR). Over the spring and summer of 2022, while the EIR is being developed, the community will have the opportunity to guide the policy recommendations that will comprise each of the General Plan Elements. Stakeholders are invited to send any comments or questions to the General Plan Update project team at info@moorparkgeneralplan.com.

View the Results of the Land Use Alternatives Open House and Online Survey

On November 14th, 2021, the City of Moorpark hosted a public workshop in an open house format to discuss proposed alternatives for future land uses within the City as part of the General Plan Update process. During this meeting, and in an accompanying online survey, the City presented draft land use alternatives recommended by the General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) for Opportunity Sites, or areas within Moorpark where change can be anticipated to occur during the next 20-30 years. Attendees at the Open House and participants in the online survey were asked to vote on their preferred land use alternative for each Opportunity Site or suggest land use options other than those recommended. Ninety-one persons signed in as attendees at the Open House and ninety-four persons provided comments via the online surveys provided in English and Spanish, which were open to comments from November 14th until November 28th, 2021.

The comments collected during those activities, and included in the resulting report, will be used by community stakeholders, the GPAC and decision-makers in developing a preferred Land Use Plan for the City of Moorpark to guide areas of stability and areas of change to 2050.

If you would like to read the full summary of comments provided at the Open House and via the online survey, please access the document here.
