Community Groups Join Forces

Sponsored by:

Calaveras County, CA — A collection of community groups has joined forces in the interest of planning and growth in Calaveras County.

They are calling themselves the Calaveras Planning Coalition.

Organizers say members have been meeting regularly from the Community Action Project, Lake Tulloch Alliance, Citizens for San Andreas,, the D2 Planning Group, Foothill Conservancy and the Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center.

The organization represents a full spectrum of concerns with a central focus on intelligent planning.

At a May meeting, 11 land use and development principals were adopted by the coalition.

These will guide the group´s efforts. One of the main goals of the coalition is a comprehensive update of the county´s General Plan, which is currently underway.
