Countywide Connection Newsletter | December 2017

The second issue of the Countywide Connection has been released!

Click here to read the full newsletter.

The newsletter provides a quick update on the project, highlights public input from regional and environmental scoping meetings, illustrates where growth is planned over the next 20+ years, and explains next steps for the EIR (environmental impact report).

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR INPUT! 

As you know, the past two years included 75 public meetings with communities, agencies, businesses, and organizations to better plan and improve our county. Public feedback generated numerous land use changes, adjustments in policy direction, and refinements to Community Plans.  Below are key deadlines for public input on two aspects of the Countywide Plan.  The next opportunity for formal public input will occur later in 2018 when we release the draft Policy Plan and draft EIR.

  • December 15, 2017 | Draft Community Plans. Public comments are due on Draft Community Plans (look for revised Plans in early 2018).  Visit countywideplan.com/cp to view draft Community Plans and provide input.
  • December 31, 2017 | Regional Open House Survey. There is still time for you to tell us what is important to you as we update County policies.  Visit countywideplan.com/surveys to take the survey.

We encourage you to share this newsletter with friends, family and colleagues so that they can keep up with the process, too! Click the image below to read the full newsletter.

Newsletters will be prepared periodically so that we can provide you updates with project progress and highlights at key milestones in the process.  Have suggestions for articles or topics for future newsletters? Let us know! CountywidePlan@lus.sbcounty.gov

Countywide Plan Connection Issue #2

 

Nov. 20th deadline for comments on the EIR scope

Let us know what you think should be included.

The deadline is approaching for agencies and other members of the public to comment on the scope and content of the information and analysis to be included in the EIR.  See below for more information and some FAQs.

The 30-day comment period, as dictated by state law, began on October 17th and runs through November 20, 2017.  A formal scoping meeting was held on October 26, 2017.  Click here for related links and materials.

Please send your comments (via mail, e-mail, fax, or our online comment form) as soon as possible—and no later than 5:00 PM on Monday, November 20, 2017.  

Your comments should be directed to:

Will the County extend the 30-day review and comment period?

No, the County does not plan on extending the 30-day period to receive comments on the proposed scope of the EIR.  The County is preparing a comprehensive EIR, which means that all 18 environmental topics included in the Appendix G CEQA Checklist will be addressed.  Additionally, the County and its consultants must start the technical studies as soon as possible to remain on schedule.

Will the County still accept comments beyond Nov. 20th?

Yes, the County will continue to accept comments throughout the preparation of the EIR.  However, comments on the NOP and scope of the EIR that are submitted after the 30-day review period may not be formally documented in the EIR.

Will there be other opportunities to comment on the EIR?

Yes, the County anticipates releasing the draft EIR around mid-2018.  The public review and comment period for the draft EIR will be a minimum of 45 days per state law.

Dec. 15th deadline for comments on Draft Community Plans

Make sure your voice is heard.

Thank you to those who have already provided comments on their Community Plan to County Staff!  The County is looking for all public comments on the Draft Community Plans, including areas that need to be updated or corrected. The County has already made a number of corrections based on public feedback during the Regional Open Houses, survey entries, and online comments.

We want your comments by December 15, 2017 so that the County can revise the Draft Community Plans for release in early 2018.  Remember, the Community Plans will be easily updated as communities complete their action items.

The best way to provide comments is to use the feedback form on your plan’s webpage to submit your comments online (left part of the screen or at the bottom of the page). Click here for links to your Community Plan webpage.  However, you can also use the general online feedback form and email addresses provided on the Contact Us page.

Draft Yermo Community Plan

Yermo

In 2016, the community embarked on a planning process to develop a new Community Plan. Two public workshops, open to any community resident, or business, or property owner, addressed strengths and weaknesses of the community, the community’s values, and what the community aspires to be in the future. Plan participants brainstormed areas of focus and actions to help the community move forward to achieve its aspirations.

The results are presented as the Public Review Draft Community Plan, available in PDF format. The final format of the Community Plan will be web-based. The PDF version of the Draft Community Plan is provided as a courtesy for simplifying public review, but may not be available once the online version of the plan is finalized.
