Benefits of SOAR

The SOAR laws provide multiple benefits to the residents of Ventura County. By stopping urban sprawl and traffic congestion throughout Ventura County, SOAR is:

keeping-our-cities-from-sprawling-together

KEEPING OUR CITIES FROM SPRAWLING TOGETHER

SOAR protects the greenbelt areas between our cities and preserves each city’s distinct identity.

protecting-nature

PROTECTING NATURE

SOAR protects habitats and wildlife corridors that are vital to native plants and animals, including several threatened and endangered species found nowhere else on earth.

cleaner-air-conservingwater

CLEANER AIR

SOAR protects the greenbelt areas between our cities and preserves each city’s distinct identity.

conserving-our-water

CONSERVING OUR WATER

SOAR keeps intact unpaved open space lands that filter storm water, replenish groundwater aquifers, and provide natural flood control systems.

furthering-economic-growth

FURTHERING ECONOMIC GROWTH

SOAR protects some of the most productive farmland in the world that supports a $2 billion agriculture industry, and protects a quality of life that attracts homebuyers, clean businesses and high paying jobs.

securing-a-safe-food-source

SECURING A SAFE FOOD SOURCE

SOAR saves farmland that helps to provide our region with a secure food source in the face of an uncertain future.

nourishing-the-spirit

NOURISHING THE SPIRIT

SOAR offers relief from the stresses of urban living by preserving large expanses of open space adjacent to urban areas.

controlling-congestion

CONTROLLING CONGESTION

SOAR not only holds the line on development, it has slowed the growth in automobile traffic so Ventura County experiences far less congestion than areas where there are no SOAR protections, like the San Fernando Valley.

fighting-for-a-better-future

FIGHTING FOR A BETTER FUTURE

SOAR protects farmland and open space today, giving our children and grandchildren a fighting chance at achieving a sustainable future. This legacy is our greatest gift to pass on to those following in our footsteps.
