The County is developing a Multiple Species Conservation Plan for the northwestern area of the unincorporated county. Known as the North County Plan, the Plan will help preserve the area's rich biodiversity. All this while expanding recreation and streamlining development in less sensitive areas.

Overview

The Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP) is a preservation framework. It outlines how we can protect and connect the most valuable biological habitats in San Diego County.

There are three regional plans: South, North and East.

Each plan focuses on the unique threatened plant and animal species for its region.

The three plans are at different stages in development. The development of the North County Plan began in 2000 as a long-term, regional habitat conservation program. The program focuses on balancing habitat protection, recreation, development, and agricultural activities. Learn more about the MSCP and the history of the North County Plan by reviewing the information on different sections of this page.

Your Participation

Community and stakeholder input has been instrumental in the development of the North County Plan, and we want that to continue. Your feedback will inform the ways we research, monitor, and manage the land that is part of the North County Plan area. It will also help us identify new area to include in the Plan.

Please check back often for new information and opportunities to contribute.

The Working Draft of the North County Plan: Technical Components of the Conservation Strategy are available for public review for 45-days from April 22, 2024 – June 6, 2024.

The County of San Diego is requesting feedback on several technical components of the Conservation Strategy for the Working Draft North County Multiple Species Conservation Plan (North County Plan). These components include the biological goals, objectives, and conservation actions at the landscape, natural community, and species level as well as project guiding conservation standards and avoidance and minimization measures.

We appreciate you taking the time to provide your input as we continue to develop the North County Plan in preparation for a full public draft to be released in 2025. To view and submit comments on the document click the “Review a Working Draft of the Plan” tool at the bottom of this page.
