General Plan rewrite starts
The County of Riverside began the complex process of
revising its Comprehensive General Plan in July 1999 with the first
meetings of advisory committees looking at the general plan and at
transportation planning. A Multi Species Habitat Conservation Plan
Advisory Committee was previously established and will contribute the
third element to this county planning effort.
Among the agricultural representatives on the General
Plan Advisory Committee are Temecula onion grower Stephen J. Corona,
Hemet poultryman Bill Cramer and a Riverside County Farm Bureau representative.
Ag representatives on the Community Environmental
Transportation Acceptability (CETAP) Advisory Committee include
Winchester cattleman and grain farmer Andy Domenigoni, Riverside citrus
grower Janet Gless and a Riverside County Farm Bureau representative.
Meetings of the advisory committees are open to the public.

This new planning effort follows closure of an issue that
produced conflict and controversy, when the County of Riverside Board of
Supervisors denied an extensive general plan amendment proposed as a settlement
of a lawsuit against the county by the Sierra Club and Audubon Society.
