Does SOAR lock in General Plan land uses until 2050?
SOAR does not lock in land use. SOAR locks in the citizens’ right to vote on changes to r land use. Having the right to vote on these changes is a core value of the citizens of Ventura County. It keeps Ventura County special. People will certainly want that right to vote at least until 2050. There have been 11 SOAR votes since SOAR passed in 1998. Six of them were approved and five of them were rejected. Napa County extended their SOAR initiative 50 years, through 2058. SOAR works.
