2015 General Plan Clean-Up

GPCUPDS is pleased to announce the release of the Draft Plan for the 2015 General Plan Clean-Up General Plan Amendment and Rezone (GPA14-001; REZ14-001). The General Plan Clean-Up is intended to provide a regular mechanism for making changes to the General Plan to allow for corrections discovered during the General Plan’s implementation or to reflect changing circumstances.

This is the second General Plan Clean-Up processed since the adoption of the General Plan Update in 2011. The types of proposed changes included in the current project fall into the following categories: Land Use Map and zoning, General Plan text revisions, Mobility Element Network, and community/subregional plans.

The Draft Plan is being circulated for a 45-day public and agency review and comment period, from April 15 through June 1. The Draft Plan and additional information can be found on the GP Clean Up project web page. Comments and questions can be sent to Kevin Johnston at kevin.johnston@sdcounty.ca.gov

The County’s PACE Program Receives APA Award

At its Annual Awards Ceremony to be held on May 7, the San Diego Section of the American Planning Association (APA) will recognize the County’s Purchase of Agricultural Conservation Easement (PACE) Program with its Best Practices Award. The award acknowledges the PACE Program for being an innovative and stateoftheart planning program and practice that will help create communities of lasting value by maintaining the rural community character of San Diego’s backcountry and preserving the residents’ quality of life. Under the Program, willing agricultural property owners are compensated for placing a perpetual easement on their agricultural land limiting future uses and removing any future development potential.

For more information, please contact Bulmaro Canseco at (858) 694-2216 or Bulmaro.Canseco@sdcounty.ca.gov.
