Proposed General Plan - Land Use Alternatives

 The most current alternative, the Planning Commission Recommendation, is located on the Proposed Maps page

Proposed Land Use Maps - General Plan Update EIR Alternatives Description

The Board of Supervisors endorsed two land use maps (the “Referral Map” and “Draft Land Use Map”) for consideration in the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the General Plan Update. Because the Board specifically directed creation of the Referral Map and it is more intensive than the Draft Land Use Map, it is anticipated that the Referral Map will become the Proposed Project. The Draft Land Use Map would become an alternative in the EIR. The California Environmental Quality Act requires that a range of alternatives be evaluated in the EIR. Therefore, additional alternatives are necessary. The Hybrid Map and Environmentally Superior Alternative are planned to serve as the additional alternatives evaluated in the EIR.

Our Population Statistics compares the projected population for each of the four General Plan Update alternatives, as well as the Existing General Plan.

Referral Map (Proposed Project)

The Referral Map is the map the Board of Supervisors created during the land use mapping phase of the project which incorporated a number of the property referrals that are not included in the Draft Land Use Map.  This map has remained in tact from when it was endorsed with only one modification relating to an expired Specific Plan that needed to be remapped.

Draft Land Use Map

The Draft Land Use Map is the other map endorsed by the Board of Supervisors during the land use mapping phase.  It is also the map where the Board directed continued refinements relating to meeting the Housing Element allocation and where additional modifications were made to achieve a more balanced road network.  Changes to the map relating to the road network were primarily made in Valley Center and Alpine as staff continued work with the Planning Groups for these areas.  In addition, land use changes include minor refinements and the above mentioned expired Specific Plan. 

Hybrid Map

The Draft Hybrid Map strikes a balance between the Referral Map and the Draft Land Use Alternative Map.  It includes the Housing Element site, the road network land use changes, and the other refinements to the map.  It also incorporates the Referral Map changes that meet the project objectives and reflect the policy direction of the Regional Elements.

Environmentally Superior Map

To complete a reasonable range of alternatives for the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the General Plan Update, an Environmentally Superior Alternative has been developed. The mapping portion of this reflects a more stringent application of the concepts and is more aggressive than the concepts in restricting growth in portions of the Semi-Rural and the Rural Lands Regional Categories.  Our Environmentally Superior Comparison Table shows what issues were considered for this map alternative and specific changes from the Referral Map.
