    1. Policy LU-4.7 Dark skies

      We minimize light pollution and glare to preserve views of the night sky, particularly in the Mountain and Desert regions where dark skies are fundamentally connected to community identities and local economies. We also promote the preservation of dark skies to assist the military in testing, training, and operations.

    2. Policy LU-5.1 Military land use compatibility

      We coordinate with military stakeholders to ensure compatible land uses in areas where military operations on or off installations could affect public health and safety, or where civilian activities could have an impact on current or future military operations. We will coordinate with military stakeholders to resolve existing land use conflicts and protect public safety in the Military Influence Overlay.

    3. Policy LU-5.2 Military Influence Overlay

      We require conditional use permits for projects within the Military Influence Overlay that could penetrate the defined floor elevation of the military airspace, or that could encroach upon military operations. We consider how development of roads and infrastructure within the Military Influence Overlay will promote growth that might lead to incompatible land use.

    4. Policy LU-5.3 Open space for military activity and buffering

      We engage with military installations to preserve open space areas to facilitate military training and operations and to buffer civilian areas from military activity.

      GO TO POLICY
    5. Policy LU-5.4 Ranged activities and projects

      We require activities and projects that can exert impacts beyond project boundaries, such as renewable energy facilities, wireless communication systems, and unmanned aircraft systems, to coordinate with military installations in preliminary planning and throughout the project’s construction stages and long-term operation.

    6. Policy LU-5.5 Transportation and infrastructure

      We consider military needs for operations and training when planning and improving local and regional transportation and infrastructure systems.

      GO TO POLICY
    7. Policy LU-5.6 Military partnerships

      We maintain effective partnerships among military and community stakeholders and pursue joint projects that provide long-term mutual benefits for the military, County, and general public.

    1. Policy IU-1.2 Water for military installations

      We collaborate with military installations to avoid impacts on military training and operations from groundwater contamination and inadequate groundwater supply.

      GO TO POLICY
    2. Policy IU-5.5 Energy and fuel facilities

      We encourage the development and upgrade of energy and regional fuel facilities in areas that do not pose significant environmental or public health and safety hazards, and in a manner that is compatible with military operations and local community identity.

  • Policies
    1. Policy TM-6.4 Airport land use compatibility

      We require proposed development in unincorporated areas to be consistent with applicable airport master plans, airport safety review areas, and military air installation compatible use zones. We may support proposed development in the influence area of County airports only when they are consistent with applicable airport master plans.

    2. Policy TM-6.5 Coordination on airport planning

      We collaborate with FAA, military installations, Caltrans Division of Aeronautics, airport owners, neighboring jurisdictions, and other stakeholders in the preparation, update, and maintenance of airport-related plans.

  • Policies
    1. Policy RE-4.4

      Encourage siting, construction and screening of RE generation facilities to avoid, minimize or mitigate significant changes to the visual environment including minimizing light and glare.

      • RE 4.4.1: Reduce visual impacts through a combination of minimized reflective surfaces, context sensitive color treatments, nature-oriented geometry, minimized vegetation clearing under and around arrays, conservation of pre-existing native plants, replanting of native plants as appropriate, maintenance of natural landscapes around the edges of facility complexes, and lighting design to minimize night-sky impacts, including attraction of and impact to nocturnal migratory birds
