Community Plan Update


The Alpine Community Plan Update (update) will revise the existing 1979 Alpine Community Plan (amended in December 2016) to reflect the vision for the community. While the updated community plan must remain consistent with the goals and policies in the General Plan and other relevant County plans and programs, the Community Plan has the same legal authority as the County General Plan.


The update will include revisions to the goals and policies (the written vision for the community) and include topics such as land use, housing, mobility, public facilities and services, safety, conservation, open space, and recreation. Maps for land use and transportation/”mobility” will be developed based on the goals and policies and zoning/design guidelines will be updated. The update will also include an implementation plan.

As a part of the update, the Board of Supervisors provided direction to staff in June of 2014 and December 2015 to establish a special feasibility study boundary and draft comprehensive amendments to Areas of Consideration (AOCs) AL-5, 6, and 7. During scope development, AOCs AL-3, 4, and 11B were added. The market feasibility analysis will provide information related to land costs and used to determine appropriate land use densities with the infrastructure study will include an assessment of costs for infrastructure such as roads, water, sewer, electricity, and fire protection.
