The County is currently re-evaluating the scope and process considerations for community plan updates, in consideration of County Board of Supervisors direction for Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) guidelines updates and the Sustainable Land Use Framework process. This re-evaluation process could lead to new direction or other actions for the County’s Community Planning program.

Community Plan Update

The Twin Oaks Valley is currently part of the existing North County Metropolitan Subregional Plan (originally adopted 1979, amended 1990, and re-adopted 2011). The purpose of the Twin Oaks Valley Community Plan Update (CPU) is to develop a standalone community plan for the Twin Oaks Valley community plan area to reflect the future vision for the community. The CPU will have the same legal authority as the County General Plan but must remain consistent with the goals and policies in the General Plan and other relevant County plans and programs.
