Background

A comprehensive update of the County General Plan was adopted in 2011. The General Plan provides a framework for land use and development decisions consistent with an established community vision and is based on a set of guiding principles designed to protect the County’s unique and diverse natural resources and maintain the character of its rural and semi-rural communities.

The General Plan Update was a comprehensive, complex, and large update in both scope and scale. As such, staff and the Board of Supervisors anticipated that unforeseen inconsistencies and mapping errors, along with changed circumstances, would emerge during plan implementation that would require changes. Efficiencies can be achieved by grouping the changes and processing them in a batch. By adopting a formal approach to such a review, certainties and assurances can also be achieved in the process. Therefore, at the time of the adoption of the General Plan Update, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to bring forward a General Plan ‘clean-up’ every two years in the form of a General Plan Amendment.
