Document Description
The objective in preparing of the Lemon Cove Community Plan is to develop a plan which can accurately reflect the needs and priorities of the unincorporated community of Lemon Cove. In addition, the County has prepared an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) to address the potential environmental effects of the proposed plan, assist in fostering future economic development opportunities and grants. As development proposals come forward, environmental assessments can tier off the General Plan's Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and the Community Plan MND. It has been recognized that Lemon Cove, an unincorporated community, has localized land use needs and issues that should be addressed in a more specific manner particular to its community, geographic features, location of major roadways, such as SR 198, population characteristics, availability of water, and other issues unique to the community's area. Therefore, the Lemon Cove Community Plan 2019 has been prepared with an emphasis on these considerations with particular focus on land use and circulation.
