Back to Local Government: County General Plan

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. For information about the program and for meeting schedules, visit the RCIP web site link below.

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.
