Document Description
The project consists of a comprehensive update of the Inyo County General Plan, revisions to the County Zoning Ordinance to make it consistent with the updated General Plan, an update to the County's Regional Transportation Plan, and a bicycle master plan. The primary land use changes associated with the updated General Plan include the future transfer of 86 acres of land to private ownership from Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The transfer locations are located adjacent to, or within, existing communities in the Owens Valley and are highlighted in the Land Use and Circulation Diagram. Additionally, as part of the update, several community plans have also been consolidated into the updated General Plan. These community plans include the Bishop Community Plan, the Starlite Estates Specific Plan, and the Darwin Specific Plan.
