Brief Description of the Key Elements of Envision 2040

General Plan – The County’s current General Plan was adopted in 1991.  The County uses it to guide decisions about zoning, permitted development, provision of public services, and transportation improvements.

Climate Action Plan – The County’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) was adopted in 2015, and is the County’s strategic approach to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions throughout the unincorporated area.

Zoning Code – The County’s Zoning Code, along with the Zoning Map implement the General Plan policies.  It deals with individual properties, and sets rules and regulations to guide development.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this upcoming Forum Luncheon.   I’m looking forward to seeing you on December 13th.
