Document Description
NOTE: Extended Review per lead An update to the Inyo County General Plan is proposed to address renewable solar and wind energy development. As part of the update, a General Plan Land Use Designation Overlay is proposed in which renewable energy projects, specifically solar and wind, may be developed, based on site specific studies pursuant to the County's Renewable Energy Ordinance and other applicable State, federal, and local laws. 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, and recreation.
