Ojai community members are coming together to create a bold new vision and strategic plan for the future. This exciting initiative will establish goals, policies, and actions that preserve community strengths and address key priorities.
 
The General Plan addresses the full spectrum of important topics to the community, including preservation of City character, maintaining a vibrant downtown, balancing tourism with quality of life, quality of public services, fire safety concerns, circulation, and environmental leadership.
 
Ojai’s last comprehensive General Plan update was in 1987; more than 30 years ago. The updated plan must reflect 2020/2021 realities and anticipate community changes through 2045.
 
To ensure a successful outcome, we need to hear from you. Where will the City build more housing? What types of amenities does the City need to provide for its residents? What is Ojai missing today? How do we keep Ojai safe as the impacts of climate change increase? What other challenges will we need to overcome? These are just some of the questions the City needs your help in addressing.
 
With your input, the updated General Plan will reflect and advance the community’s priorities for the future.

On the web page, you will find updated information about the City’s General Plan, Mayor welcome video, an online survey, as well as a contact button to get on a mailing list.
