Document Description
The proposed project is an update to the City's 1990 General Plan. This EIR will provide an assessment of the updated General Plan, which includes a new policy document and updated land use and circulation diagrams. The Planning Area covers 42.1 square miles. The current city limits cover 21.4 square miles, which includes approximately nine square miles within the boundary of the Naval Air Weapons Station (NAWS) China Lake. Although in the city limits, the area on NAWS China Lake is managed by the Navy, and the City does not exercise land use authority over this area. The Planning Area for the General Plan includes the city limits and unincorporated areas in Kern County that bear relation to the planning of the community.
