East County Plan
The East County Multiple Species Conservation Plan (East County Plan) would extend the County’s Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP) into the eastern portion of the unincorporated county. A great deal of collaborative work has gone into development of the East County Plan, including release of a preliminary draft map in 2008. For all parties who have participated to date, the dedication of time and interest is appreciated. The input received from members of the Steering Committee, community groups, and other interested parties has been invaluable to the East County Plan.
Unfortunately, County budget constraints and staffing reductions have caused progress of the East County Plan to slow significantly. Once the budget and staffing constraints are resolved, plan development is intended to resume. As additional information on the status of the East County Plan is available, interested parties will be notified.

Steering Committee Meetings
The County held seven meetings with the East County MSCP Steering Committee from late 2007 through early 2009. These meetings provided general information about the development of the East County Plan and facilitated group discussion on key components of a draft plan and the unique challenges faced in the East County.
