    Please join us as we welcome Alberto Vargas, Orange County’s Planning Manager, to discuss the County’s Vision 2050 and Orange Code projects.  The Vision 2050 initiative is a rewrite of the County’s Comprehensive Plan and will guide how — and where — growth in Orange County will occur during the next three decades. This Plan includes a public engagement process focused on environmental preservation, community character and public spaces as guiding principles for future development. Vision 2050 will be implemented through the adoption of a new Land Development Code — the Orange Code — which will focus on placemaking standards and context-based regulations. This type of Form-Based Code relies on development characteristics that are desired rather than what communities seek to avoid.  Mr. Vargas will provide an overview of the County’s efforts to date and outline the next steps in the process as the County moves toward adoption. 

    Members and nonmembers are welcome to register for this event.

    Thank you to RVi Planning + Landscape Architecture and the One Eleven Building for hosting this event.
