The City of Moorpark selected PlaceWorks to lead the update of its comprehensive General Plan because of our extensive planning experience, innovative approach to outreach, GIS capabilities, CEQA expertise, and reputation for transforming legislatively mandated work products into vehicles for real change. The General Plan update includes an analysis of existing conditions, public outreach, development of a shared vision for Moorpark, exploration of land use alternatives, update of all elements, revision of the zoning ordinance, and preparation of a program EIR. PlaceWorks identified a number of major issues that pose conspicuous challenges and opportunities, including the future growth, development of economically prosperous places in the community, the role of Moorpark College in the community, legal mandates to increase housing supply, and climate change and sustainability.
