San Diego General Plan Update

READER’S EDITORIAL: SUPERVISORS SHOULD SUPPORT GENERAL PLAN UPDATE BACKED BY LOCAL PLANNING GROUPS

 

Editor's note: This issue is slated to be addressed by Supervisors on Wed. Feb. 9.


“The County Board of Supervisors should know that 23 of the 26 Community Planning and Sponsor Groups have voted to support the proposed General Plan Update. They should also know that S.O.R.E's late-stage attempt to block adoption of proposed General Plan is not based on any new information. “ – Donna Tisdale

February 8, 2011 (San Diego’s East County) -- The current controversy, ginned-up by Save Our Rural Economy (S.O.R.E.), an apparently well funded coalition of builders, developers, Realtors, some farmers, and in our area--absentee land owners, is based on rehashed old news that has been repeatedly analyzed and responded to by County staff at various stages of this long-drawn out update process.

SUPERVISORS STALL ON PROPOSED GENERAL PLAN UPDATES UNTIL AFTER ELECTION


Public turns out primarily in opposition, though majority of planning groups support

October 21, 2010 (San Diego) - After listening to seven hours of testimony from dozens of speakers for and against a controversial General Plan Update affecting much of East County, the county Board of Supervisors yesterday put off a decision until Nov. 10.

 

On that date, the board expects to hear from 150 more speakers over another seven-hour period—and it plans to vote on the entire Update package.
