Land Use

About the program

Foothill Conservancy participates in the public review of new developments and the general plans and zoning regulations of local cities and counties. In doing so we strive to ensure that our rural character is preserved; that adequate infrastructure, services and workforce housing are timely provided for; that open space and natural resources are conserved and that impacts to our environment are avoided or mitigated. We actively engage in public education, help communities address local concerns and learn about land use planning practices. We are guided by Foothill Conservancy land use principles as well as our vision
and mission statement which are posted on our blog.
