Document Description
The proposed project is the Sustainability Policy and Regulatory Update of the County's General Plan/LCP and County Code. The County's existing General Plan/LCP was adopted in 1994 with a focus on preserving natural and agricultural resources and limiting urban expansion. After more than 25 years, the General Plan/LCP requires updating to define a more sustainable growth pattern for the future. The broad sustainability goals of the proposed project include updating the goals, objectives, policies, and implementation strategies of the General Plan/LCP, as well as updates to the County Code to implement the policies of the new General Plan/LCP, modernize the code, and adopt design guidelines.
