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.

🌟 On this #GivingTuesday, we hope you’ll find SOAR and its mission to protect open space and farmland worthy of your donation.

SOAR is led by an all-volunteer organization that relies on contributions to keep it strong. It’s the only organization in Ventura County dedicated to stopping urban sprawl, and it’s amazing how many benefits come from just that! 🏞️
