The first of its kind planning zone in Ventura county to protect wildlife habitat will be considered by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors at a public hearing:
January 26 2017, 3 PM
Ventura County Government Center
800 S. Victoria Avenue
The proposed ‘Wildlife Corridor Protection’ Zone if adopted would place into the Ventura County General Plan land use protections to preserve natural wildlife corridors which are so important for the migration of wildlife species such as mountain lions, deer herds and other mammals.
As our county becomes increasing urbanized wildlife is getting squeezed out of areas they have historically used for migration routes.
Thanks to the hard work of Ventura county supervisor Linda Parks who drafted this plan, the hope is to have protected wildlife corridors be the official policy of the County of Ventura.
