Welcome to Citizens Planning Association

CPA is a nonprofit grassroots organization that focuses on countywide land use issues.  We advocate for the best standards of design and natural resource protection in order to maintain sustainable communities and protect the heritage of Santa Barbara County. To further this mission we inform, educate, and engage with residents and decision makers; encourage citizen involvement; and serve as a watchdog for our priority objectives.
