North County Plan

The North County Multiple Species Conservation Plan (North County Plan) would extend the County’s Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP) into the northern portion of the unincorporated county. On October 28, 2020 (6), the Board of Supervisors directed staff to continue development of the North County Plan as a joint Habitat Conservation Plan/Natural Community Conservation Plan (HCP/NCCP) to achieve many of the same environmental and economic benefits realized through the adopted County Subarea Plan (South County Plan).

A great deal of collaborative work has gone into development of the North County Plan. The input received from members of the Stakeholder Working Group, community groups, and other interested parties has been invaluable to the North County Plan. As additional information on the status of the North County Plan is available, interested parties will be notified.

The North County Plan Stakeholder Working Group (formerly Steering Committee) was formed in 2017 and includes a diverse group of stakeholders that represent the environmental, agricultural, recreational, and development communities. The Stakeholder Working Group meets to review and discuss components of the draft plan, serving as a sounding board for their respective interest groups.

In alignment with the County’s goals to increase transparency in government, the County invites interested members of the community to attend and listen in at our next Stakeholder Working Group Meeting scheduled for Monday, October 25 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm. If you would like to address County staff or the Stakeholder Working Group on aspects of the North County Plan, there will be an opportunity at the start of the meeting for members of the public to provide a 2-minute public comment. Though not required in order to attend, please RSVP if you would like to provide a public comment so we can accommodate you.

The meeting will take place Monday, October 25 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm. Click on this Zoom link to attend the virtual meeting: Meeting Link.
