Document Description
The Superior Court of San Diego County issued a judgement as a result of a lawsuit brought against the County (Save Our Forest and Ranchlands v. County of San Diego) that successfully challenged the adoption of GPA 94-01 that would have set a minimum parcel size of eight acres for the (20) designated lands. The court directed the County to bring the Regional Land Use, Open Space, and Conservation elements of the General Plan into conformance with State law and to prepare appropriate environmental documentation pursuant to the Government Code Section 65759. A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) was circulated for a 45-day public review period on February 18, 1999. Revisions to that DEIR were made to the following resource areas: noise, transportation and circulation, and the water quality section of water resources. This revised DEIR was circulated for a 45-day public review period on October 21, 1999. Subsequent court action in a Supplemental Writ of Mandate (Superior Court County of San Diego case #676630) directed that revisions to the DEIR be completed for a biological, botanical and hydrological resources. Revisions to the DEIR have been completed for these resources. The revisions to the DEIR were circulated for a 45-day public review period beginning on August 3, 2001. Certain comments received during this comment period requested the County to further analyze the impact of potential future residential development. This supplement provides a refined analysis of the amount and location of potential residential development and analyzes the potential biological impacts associated with this residential development.
