The City of Ojai is partnering with Carnegie Mellon University and Flip Labs to embark on a Transition Design Journey to shape the future of the city and region. Our goal is to work together to support a community led vision of what’s possible. Using time-tested methods for collaboration, we’ll help the community devise new and creative solutions to chronic problems, from water scarcity to affordable housing.
