September 13, 2016 (Alpine) -- The Forest Conservation Initiative (FCI) Lands General Plan Amendment (GPA) will be on the agenda for the September 22, 2016 meeting of the Alpine Community Planning Group.  This meeting begins at 6:00 pm in the Alpine Community Center at 1830 Alpine Boulevard, Alpine. 

 County staff will present the following:

•         Recommended land use map designations for Alpine, including areas not endorsed by Supervisors in 2014.

•         Recommended zoning changes for properties in Alpine.

•         Proposed Alpine Community Plan Update and infrastructure study.

•         Next steps (GPA and Community Plan Update).

The initiative passed initially by voters protected extensive forest lands, but the measure expired through sunsetting and was not renewed.  Changes would allow additional development on some parcels where it was previously not allowed.

The FCI Lands GPA was heard by the Planning Commission on October 18 and November 15, 2013 and then by the Board of Supervisors on June 25, 2014. Supervisors directed staff to prepare final environmental documents to approve the GPA according to the land use designations endorsed by Supervisors. In addition, Supervisors directed staff to prepare a scope of work for an infrastructure study for an area in eastern Alpine. 

 Additional information on the GPA, along with the staff reports for the PC and BOS hearings and the 2016 Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report, are available at:
