Ordinance 661 Consistency Rezone Phase II BackgroundOrdinance 661 photo

The Long Range Planning Division conducted a countywide rezone project for rural lands zoned under the outdated Ordinance 661. Phase I of the Ordinance 661 Consistency Rezone was completed in 2007 for the Santa Maria Valley and San Antonio Creek rural regions. Phase II was completed in 2016 and rezoned remaining Ordinance 661 lands located in the Lompoc Valley, Cuyama Valley, Los Padres National Forest, Santa Ynez Valley (parcels outside of the Santa Ynez Valley Community Plan area), and South Coast Foothill Areas.

On June 21, 2016, the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing to consider Phase II of the Ordinance 661 Consistency Rezone Project and voted unanimously to approve the project.
