Ferndale Land Use Element Survey

The City of Ferndale received grant funding from the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for planning projects related to housing development. One of these projects is updating the General Plan Land Use Element. The Land Use Element establishes the desired pattern of long-term development, agricultural/natural resource preservation, and other issues of community development, and includes guidance on the community form, character, growth, commercial corridors, employment areas, and residential neighborhoods. The goals and policies will provide the structure to guide development decisions.

This survey seeks to gather community input on key land use, environmental, and business development issues in the City. Please answer the following questions. Result will remain anonymous and will be considered as this planning process moves forward. Please complete the survey by ๐—๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ, ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿญ.
