SOAR Protects Our County’s Open Space.

SOAR is a series of voter initiatives that protect open space and farmland by vote of the people.  The County SOAR requires a vote countywide before agricultural, rural or open space land in the unincorporated county can be rezoned for development. The eight voter-approved SOAR initiatives passed by the cities of Camarillo, Fillmore, Moorpark, Oxnard, Santa Paula, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks and Ventura require a citywide vote of approval for urban development beyond a City Urban Restriction Boundary (CURB), or, in the case of the City of Ventura, before rezoning agricultural land within the city’s sphere of influence. The Thousand Oaks SOAR initiative also protects open space and parks within the city.

Urgent Action Alert!

Prop 117, passed by voters in 1990, protects mountain lions from indiscriminate hunting and established a fund to protect their habitat. For over 30 years the State has honored its commitment to fund Prop 117’s Habitat Conservation Fund (HCF). Even through harder times than we have today. Yet now lawmakers, pressed to fill gaps in the state budget, are proposing to divert the HCF for other uses. Language in Prop 117 specifically requires it only be used for its intended purpose.

Citizens worked hard to get Prop 117 on the ballot, including Thousand Oaks’ own Carol Olson and Carole MacDonald who fought for mountain lion protections.

In their honor, and for wildlife throughout our State, we ask that you call or email your legislators today and urge them to protect the HCF. Our wildlife depend on it! #protectthehcf
