Meeting Topic: Regional Land-Use Planning: Shaping Growth and Community Character in the Upper Pajaro Watershed

 

In this 90-minute virtual meeting, we will explore the theme of land-use planning, especially how it shapes the upper Pajaro River watershed. Through presentations and Q&A discussion with staff from the cities of San Juan Bautista and Hollister, and the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) of San Benito County, we'll specifically focus on questions about city general planning, and how that interacts with county planning. For example, how are different land uses (e.g. housing, industrial, transportation, agricultural, open space) balanced in a broad way through city General Plans, as well as through project-specific discretionary permitting? How do General Plans envision the future balance between agricultural and more urban land uses as the areas around cities continue to develop? How does the process of annexation/incorporation of land into cities occur? And what are the opportunities for public involvement in the planning and permitting processes?

 

This is a virtual training on Zoom. Please register by Monday, October 26th to receive the Zoom link information. To register, please visit Pajaro Compass Network's REGISTRATION SITE.
