7/5/13 County Feedback Request for Draft Policy

The County is requesting public feedback on their Draft General Plan Initiation Amendment Policy

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 Dixon Ranch, Marble Valley, and others (see list).  San Diego has a similar policy for those of you who look into precedents, etc.  

If passed, 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.

Read for yourself, and PLEASE provide feedback to the county (Shawna Purvines at  Do not let them think these large developments are of no consequence to us.

Update 7/10/13:  For sample letter, click here.  If you agree, feel free to send a simple email to Shawna saying "I concur with...".  This issue was confusing to some; hope this helps!
