What is it?

As part of the Countywide Plan, the County Policy Plan, provides:

  • An update of the County’s General Plan and Community Plans addressing physical, social, and economic issues facing the unincorporated portions of the County.
  • An expansion of the County’s General Plan to address supportive services for adults and children, healthcare services, public safety, and other regional county services provided to both incorporated and unincorporated areas.

When will it start?

The Policy Plan will be started in 2017 and a public review draft is expected to be available in 2018.  The Policy Plan will also be evaluated through a programmatic environmental impact report (EIR) in 2018/2019, with adoption expected in 2019.
