Santa Rosa Valley Trails, Inc.

Santa Rosa Valley is a rural, residential and equestrian community in unincorporated Ventura County in California. It lies between the cities of Thousand Oaks, Moorpark and Camarillo.
Santa Rosa Valley was an almost exclusively agricultural area unitl the second half of the twentieth century. Then the County of Ventura approved the development of 'Rural' lots but without a specific plan for the development of the area.

However in 1982 the county adopted an Equestrian Trails Policy, which provided for trails in all subdivisons and that those trails would link to other subdivisions. This policy has been regarded an unenforceable by the county planning staff because the county did not also create a Trail Plan for Santa Rosa Valley. Although the county could strongly encourage equestrian or multi-use trails, they could not make them a condition of development.

Many of the earlier subdivisions did include dedicated trails easements that have created the current trail system in the Santa Rosa Valley. But in later years some developers have chosen not to include trails with the result that the trail system ihas become disconnected or even disappeared in some areas. Additionally the County has generally been unable to accept or maintan trails in areas that are not covered by a homeowner's associaton.

SRV Trails Inc was formed to help in both of these areas. Firstly we will work with the County and provide financing for the creation of a Trail Plan for the Santa Rosa Valley. Then SRV Trails will provide a way for property owners to donate easements that will be maintained and insured by the charity in perpetuity..

Santa Rosa Valley Trails Inc. was incorporated in 2004 to plan, create, acquire and maintain multi-use non-motorized trails for public use in the Santa Rosa Valley and surrounding areas and to provide connections to other trails or recreational facilities. These trails can be used on foot, by bicyclists or on horseback.

In November of 2006, Santa Rosa Valley Trails Inc. was determined by the IRS to be a 501(c) (3) charitable organization.
This organization was formed two years ago to foster the development and maintenance of non-motorized trails in the Valley. Their primary effort at this time is documentation of the existing trail system in support of having the County adopt a policy regarding non-motorized trails. An initial draft of the Santa Rosa Valley Trails Map has been prepared using GIS mapping technology and is being made available for your review (and comment). A medium resolution version in PDF format is available from their Website. After going there, Click on 'Enter' and then 'Trail Map'.
