During the hearings of June 20, and June 27, 2012, the Board of Supervisors (Board) directed staff to process a General Plan Amendment (GPA) for 47 separate PSRs along with their associated study areas. A PSR is a request/petition to the Board of Supervisors to change the General Plan land use designation. Study Areas were added to most of the PSR Analysis Areas for mapping consistency purposes, and therefore, land use designation changes are proposed for the study area parcels also.
During the hearing of September 12, 2012, four of the PSRs were separated out, to be processed on a CEQA Addendum timeline. These four PSRs were processed under GPA 12-012, and approved by the Board on June 18, 2014. Additional information on GPA 12-012 can be found here - Property Specific Requests NM16, RM15, SD2, & SV17 (GPA 12-012). In addition, the owners for two of the PSRs requested to withdraw from the process. The process of removing these two PSRs and associated Study Area parcels was completed in 2016. As such, 41 PSRs (and associated Study Areas) remain in the current GPA.
