Adaptive Management Program
An important component of the 2011 General Plan is the Adaptive Management Program (AMP). The intent of the AMP is to ensure that the General Plan is being implemented effectively and towards achievement of its vision of a sustainable Santa Barbara, and to provide a feedback loop and opportunity for timely policy and implementation action adjustments, rather than infrequent, major reactive updates. Annual AMP reports have been prepared as part of the General Plan Implementation reports each year since 2013 for the joint meetings of the City Council and Planning Commission. To date, the General Plan Implementation/AMP reports have not identified a change of circumstance so substantial to warrant amendments to the General Plan's objectives, policies, or implementation actions.
