The “Community General Plan" Is Controversial


LandWatch and seventeen other community groups sponsored an open, public process that led to a “Community General Plan," submitted to the Monterey County Board of Supervisors on January 11, 2005. Many of the policies in the Community General Plan are controversial, but LandWatch is convinced that the adoption of this plan would have very positive impacts on the future growth and development of Monterey County, helping to support the local economy, provide strong protections for the environment, and advance social equity goals. Meanwhile, the Community General Plan is being challenged from all sides.

The Community General Plan is available for your review on the web. It is under attack from development interests, and has also drawn fire from at least one environmental group. You can read up on the controversies by following these links:
