BOS vote 5/12/15

Supervisors Frentzen and Mikulaco voted against expenditure of $55K additional funding for changes to the General Plan.  These changes are not required by law and will further add to the County debt of $20M. Thank you Supervisors Frentzen and Mikulaco. (Not-so-many thanks to Supervisors Veerkamp, Novasel, and Ranalli, who approved it on a 3-2 vote.)

The basis for this extra funding was dubious at best, with staff having cited 5,000 pages of 'reference material' as 'public comment'. 

37,000 parcels are having their zoning changed through this update, bypassing the notification process to adjacent property owners, and many protective policies are being stripped away.  A presentation given in Cam Park 4/29/15 showing why there is opposition to the project is available here (link)
