NOTE: Extended Review per lead An update to the Inyo County General Plan is proposed to address renewable solar and wind energy development.

Other updates proposed include the following: identifying appropriate means to develop renewable wind and solar energy resources, provided that social economic, and environmental impacts are minimized; offsetting costs to the County and lost economic development potential, and mitigation of economic effects; working to protect military readiness, and considering conversions of lands utilized for agriculture, mining.
