Borrego U: County Planning 101

January 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The home you live in, stores you shop at, and places where you work and play all have a
connection to the County of San Diego. Managing the built environment and how it fits into the
mosaic of regional social, economic, and environmental systems is a big part of what the County
does. The County works with a wide range of stakeholders to understand the needs of
communities. County planning staff continually seek to answer important questions like where
will future growth occur, or not? How is your neighborhood changing? What kind of new homes
will be built, and will they be safe? How do we offset climate change?


The goal of County planning efforts is to balance community, economic, and environmental
interests to ensure the highest quality of life for the public of San Diego County. To help achieve
this, the County of San Diego department of Planning & Development Services (PDS) has a Long
Range Planning Division that is responsible for maintaining planning documents, programs, and
policies as required by federal, state, and local laws. As directed by the County Board of
Supervisors, the Division aims to modernize regulations and remove barriers without
compromising public safety, the environment, or quality of life. Organized by interdisciplinary
sections, County planners operate cross-functionally to ensure flexibility and full integration of
planning efforts. Planners seek to continually improve the quality of life in the unincorporated
area by collaborating with diverse stakeholders to develop innovative solutions to address the
unique needs of 26 unincorporated communities.

o Planning Process
