Thank you for sharing your feedback during Community Engagement Window #1! Stay tuned for further opportunities to share your ideas for the future of Orange County.

Get Involved

Orange County relies heavily on involving the community in long-range planning efforts, and there are multiple ways to get involved in the development of the county's guiding documents such as the Orange County Land Use Plan 2050.


The Orange County Land Use Plan 2050 will provide three engagement windows (in person and online) to provide key feedback on community ideas and choices. In the final phase of the project, there will be a Board of County Commissioners hearing open to public comment before the plan is adopted. These are important opportunities for members of the community to share their feedback on the future of Orange County.


The first Community Engagement Window - Confirming Community Aspirations - was held from fall 2023 through winter of 2024. This phase of engagement asked community members to define aspirations for Orange County in 2050 that can help lead to the vision and goals for the plan. A report on the outcomes of the first Community Engagement Window is available on the Resources page of this website

The second Community Engagement Window - Testing the Growth and Conservation Framework is scheduled for late 2024. Keep an eye out for more information!

Upcoming Meetings

Community Engagement Window #2 will be launched later in 2024. Stay tuned for updates.
