Published: June 29, 2018 and July 6 & 13, 2018  The Valley Springs News.Notice of Availability of a

Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) and Notice of Public Meeting to Provide Comments on the Draft EIR

 

The Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) (SCH # 2017012043) for the proposed Calaveras County General Plan Update is now available for review. Public comment on this document is invited for a 45-day period from June 29 through August 13, 2018. More information is provided below.

 

PROJECT LOCATION: Calaveras County is located in California’s central Sierra Nevada region, ranging from low-elevation oak-covered foothills to high-elevation pine forests. The majority of land within the County falls within the regulatory jurisdiction of the County, with the exception of the City of Angels Camp, the only incorporated city within the county boundaries, and federal and state lands (approximate 13 percent of the land area of the County). Approximately 39,000 acres within the County are managed by the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management with an additional 6,000 acres, associated with the Calaveras Big Trees State Park, owned by the State of California.

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The proposed project comprises a General Plan for Calaveras County. The proposed project is consistent with State law requirements and includes eight elements, a General Plan land use map, and buildout projections for the County.

 

A General Plan acts as the long-term blueprint for making rational decisions regarding a county’s vision of future growth. The General Plan expresses the community’s development goals and incorporates public policies relative to the distribution of future public and private land uses. California State law requires that each county must have an adopted General Plan “for the physical development of the county or city, and any land outside its boundaries which bears relation to its planning”.

 

The State of California Office of Planning and Research indicates that seven (7) elements are required in a General Plan, as follows: Land Use; Circulation; Housing; Conservation; Open Space; Noise; and Safety. The Calaveras County General Plan Update Project consists of an update to the existing 1996 General Plan and includes a total of eight (8) elements. All the General Plan elements include goals and policies carefully drafted to guide successful implementation of the General Plan and the County’s overall vision for buildout through the time horizon of 2035.

 

SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS: The DEIR identifies significant impacts in the following California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) environmental issue areas: aesthetics; agricultural, forest, and mineral resources; air quality and greenhouse gas emissions; biological resources; cultural resources; geology, soils, and seismicity; hazards and hazardous materials; hydrology and water quality; noise and vibration; population and housing; public services and utilities; and transportation and circulation. As described in the DEIR many of these impacts can be fully mitigated but some cannot and would remain significant and unavoidable. Unavoidable impacts include effects on aesthetics (4.1-2), agricultural, forest, and mineral resources (4.2-1), air quality and greenhouse gas emissions (4.3-1 and 4.3-4), biological resources (4.4-1, 4.4-2, 4.4-3, and 4.4-4), cultural resources (4.5-1, 4.5-2, and 4.5-3), hazards and hazardous materials (4.7-5), noise and vibration (4.10-1, 4.10-2, 4.10-4, and 4.10-5), population and housing (4.11-1), public services and utilities (4.12-1, 4.12-2, 4.12-4, 4.12-5, 4.12-6, 4.12-9, and 4.12-10), transportation and circulation (4.13-2).

 

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS/WASTE ON SITE:  The project site does not contain any sites listed on State data bases compiled pursuant to California Government Code Section 65962.5.

 

ADDRESS WHERE COPY OF DRAFT EIR IS AVAILABLE: The DEIR and proposed General Plan Update are now available for public review and download on the Calaveras County website at http://planning.calaverasgov.us/GP-Update.
