Roadmap for the Future Available for Review

The City of Moorpark is pleased to announce a critical milestone in the development of the City’s updated General Plan: publication of the Plan’s preliminary goals and policies for public review. The draft goals and policies were developed by the General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) over the last several months based on the comments provided by stakeholders over the course of the General Plan Update process. The goals and policies are intended to provide the roadmap towards achieving the Vision Statement for the City drafted by the public and GPAC, and approved by the City Council on February 3rd, 2021. Topics addressed include land use, mobility, infrastructure, economic development, open space, parks and recreation, conservation, safety and noise.

At the 4th General Plan Community Workshop held on September 24, 2022, community members spoke with their neighbors and members of the General Plan Update project team about the goals and policies, and provided comments in person. Community members were also offered the opportunity to review the draft goals and policies online through October 9th, 2022. 

The commenting period has closed. Comments on the Draft General Plan Goals and Policies received online (linked here) and in person (linked here) can also be viewed on the Resources page under the heading “Plan and Policy Development”.

Feedback provided online and in person will be used to refine the goals and policies for inclusion in the final General Plan document, which will be provided for public review in early 2023.

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.
