Document Description
In 2018, the City of Grover Beach City Council directed City staff to begin updates of the City’s existing General Plan Conservation and Open Space Elements. The Conservation and Open Space Elements were combined into a single element, and the proposed Conservation and Open Space (COS) Element sets forth the City’s goals, policies, and implementation programs to conserve and properly manage natural, scenic, and cultural resources. The proposed COS Element is organized into the following three sections: Natural Resources; Tribal Resources; and Water and Floodwater. Each section contains various topics that affect Grover Beach’s conservation and open space resources and establishes the City’s goals, policies, and implementation programs for these resources. Most of the proposed COS Element policies are derived from the existing General Plan 2010 Land Use Element, with revisions to some policies and several new policies to address specific topics not previously addressed in the General Plan. Accordingly, the COS Element update involves revisions to the Land Use Element and elimination of the Scenic Routes Element of the General Plan and includes new policies to address environmental justice pursuant to State planning requirements. These components of the update reconcile and provide general consistency and organization for the proposed COS Element with other chapters of the General Plan. There are also proposed deletions to several Land Use Element policies that are no longer applicable and other minor revisions.
