About The Project
As a result of the City of Thousand Oaks Visioning 2064 Program Final Report (February 2015) and drought conditions experienced, the City is incorporating drought-tolerant and water-wise landscaping into public medians and public rights-of-way, while maintaining aesthetic integrity. To learn more about water-wise landscaping, visit BeWaterwise.com. The 2017 Forestry Master Plan is a comprehensive update of the 1989 Forestry Master Plan for City-maintained trees and plantings in the public right-of-way. This document provides the City with a blueprint on planting materials and maintenance.
The Forestry Master Plan document impacts City-maintained street trees and plantings that are located within the public right-of-way,such as medians, parkways, and easements. It does not apply to privately maintained trees or plantings, although private property owners may find the plans to be useful resources.
Community Workshops & Online Survey
Three community workshops and an online survey were conducted to collaborate with the community and stakeholders during the development of the Forestry Master Plan. The workshops and the survey highlighted the purpose of the project, provided opportunities for community input and feedback on proposed ideas were used in finalizing the master plans as approved by the City Council on April 11, 2017.
