In addition, for those unable to attend the July 21 workshop, links are provided to the workshop guide, the workshop guide insert, the exhibit boards used during the workshop first interactive exercise stations, the exhibit boards used during the workshop second interactive exercise, and the workshop presentation (presentation to be uploaded following the workshop).

Submitting Public Review Comments

All comments should be sent to pds.communityplanupdates@sdcounty.ca.gov by August 20. To discuss the Draft CCP with staff, discuss the July 21 workshop, ask questions, and/or get clarifications on the proposals included, stakeholders are encouraged to contact the project team at the email address listed above, or at (858) 505-6677. 

Stakeholders may choose to format comments in accordance with the exercise prompts used at the workshop, but that is not required.

 Corridor Concept Plan

VC Pedestrian
VC Cole Grade

The Valley Center Road Village Corridor Concept Plan is a County-initiated project that seeks to formalize a corridor access management strategy for Valley Center Road in the area of the North and South Villages, from Woods Valley Road on the south to Cole Grade Road on the north.

The access management strategy will develop a full range of alternatives with recommendations related to intersection design/control (including signalization improvements and/or roundabouts), safe ingress and egress from adjacent streets/driveways, and operations from the perspective of all road users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, equestrians, and drivers.

Funding for the project is being provided through a grant from Caltrans and the project will run in parallel with a County-initiated community plan update. 

Timeline and Public Workshops

The project is anticipated to run from December 2018 through early 2021, and will help to inform the mobility planning for the Valley Center Community Plan Update, which will be on a similar timeframe.

The Corridor Concept Plan development process will include three public workshops:

Workshop 1 - Community Kickoff: This first public workshop was held on March 12, 2019. 

Workshop 2 - Concept Alternatives: The second public workshop was held on August 25, 2020. 

Workshop 3 – Preferred Concept, Draft Report, and Implementation Plan: At this workshop the preferred concept will be presented, with supporting analysis, including implementation options. 
 

How to Get Involved

Similar to the parallel Community Plan Update process, there are many opportunities for stakeholder involvement throughout the process, including:

  • Community Workshops
  • Community Planning Group meetings
  • Submitting comments during workshops and anytime via the project email address (noted below)
  • Contacting staff to discuss the project, via the project email address or phone line (also noted below)
