The San Bernardino Countywide Plan

PlaceWorks is leading an effort to go further than any county or city has ever gone with a general plan—a web-based “complete county” plan. Most general plans are simply rulebooks for guiding development and growth, but this update will go well beyond that to establish a comprehensive plan that covers all county services. The plan will take into account the unique values and priorities of individual communities across the county and serve as a guide for countywide decision-making, financial planning, and communications. The web-based format facilitates easy access to a wealth of data—such as performance metrics for tracking goals and dynamic online mapping tools that allow anyone to view, overlay, and filter information from the parcel level to the entire 20,000-square-mile area.
