County, Public Get Update On General Plan

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — Close to 100 people showed up at the San Andreas Town Hall Tuesday to hear a status report on Calaveras County´s General Plan Update.

There are nine phases to the update. Consultants Mintier and Associates were hired for Phase one and two and made the Tuesday presentation to a joint meeting of the Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission.

Phase one, program initiation, is currently underway. Phase two is the creation of a baseline report, which essentially describes the current state of the county.

Six community workshops will be held beginning May 1 and lasting through part of June.

Following Mintier´s presentation, several community members raised concerns about items in the update including the timeline, program and the inclusion of global warming principles, bikes paths and childcare.

The consultant and county staff addressed most of the concerns and encouraged the public to stay involved in the process.

A timeline of events says the entire General Plan Update will be complete by February of 2009.
