Calaveras County Has A New General Plan

Calaveras County Has A New General Plan 

Calaveras County has a new general plan. After a month of public hearings, the commission voted unanimously to adopt the county’s general plan. The resolution has been adopted on a 5-0 vote, and now moves on to the board of supervisors. The county’s general plan is a long term blueprint reflecting the community’s vision for growth over the next 20 years. In theory, that’s accomplished by setting policies that comply with state requirements and balance public and private interests as they pertain to the eight elements of the plan, which are land use, housing, circulation, conservation, noise, safety, open space and environmental justice. The last time a general plan was adopted for Calaveras County was 1996, and county officials have been working on an update for the last 12 years. The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors intends to hold two special hearings for final review tentatively on July 30 and 31. The plan could then be adopted by August at the earliest, after preparing findings to ensure the document meets state environmental requirements. The final document is available for viewing on the county website.
