County Invites Comment on General Plan

07/05/2013 01:41 PM PDT

What's it about?...County staff is proposing a policy for "pre-review" by the Board of Supervisors on General Plan(GP) Amendment projects in order to screen out those which do not meet GP objectives, and they would like your input. The draft indicates the policy would be retroactive to encompass San Stino, Tilden Park, Dixon Ranch, Lime Rock, Marble Valley, and others (see list of pending applications). San Diego has a similar policy for those of you who look into precedents, etc.

If the policy is approved, pre-review would not only provide a means of earlier notification to the public, but could also halt some projects before significant money has been spent and a sense of 'obligation' to approve them has been incurred.

Please take time to read over the information and provide feedback to the county (Shawna Purvines at
