Our voices need to be heard!
The City of Oceanside’s General Plan Land Use Element is the primary source of long-range planning and policy direction used to guide growth and preserve the quality of life in the City. This section of the Plan is critical as Oceanside looks to the future of development in our city. However, the Land Use Element has not been amended since 1988.
These 28 year old Land Use planning guidelines are antiquated, cumbersome, ineffective and they do not reflect our present day needs. In order to update this segment of the City’s General Plan, the City Council must allocate funding from the City budget to accomplish this important task. While it may not be as appealing as other aspects of the budget, it is critical to the future development of our community.
