PowerPoint Presentation

WORKSHOPS WITH PLANNING COMMISSION AND BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

County staff will present community input on potential land use map revisions to the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors at workshops in November 2016 and early 2017. The workshop presentations will also include a discussion of the values and aspirations identified by attendees at the community workshops.

No official action will be taken at these workshops, as they are intended to present the community’s input on existing and potential land use based on outreach conducted to date.  Any official map changes will still need to be evaluated through an environmental impact report (EIR).  The EIR is estimated to be completed in late 2017, with public hearings expected in 2018.
