On June 29, 2004, the Board of Supervisors adopted the Santa Cruz
County 2004 Comprehensive Plan as recommended by the Planning Commission on May
This Plan is the culmination of over a year of hard work by the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee and members of the public. Nearly 30 meetings were held to develop the goals, objectives and policies contained in the Plan and to craft language that recognizes the special uniqueness of Santa Cruz County and its sub-regions.
You are encouraged to read the Plan including the Appendices. A link to a free reader software is provided on the left side of this page for those who need it. Should you have any questions regarding the Plan, please contact me.
