COUNTY RELEASES ENVIRONMENTAL REPORT ON FORMER FCI LANDS : COMMENTS DUE MARCH18

 

February 10, 2013 (San Diego’s East County)--The draft environmental documents for the Forest Conservation Initiative (FCI) Lands General Plan Amendment have been released for public review.  The lands included cover vast tracts of unincorporated communities in East County and beyond.

This Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) has been prepared as a Supplemental EIR (SEIR) because only minor additions or changes are necessary to ensure the General Plan Update Program EIR adequately applies to the proposed changed designations of the Forest Conservation Initiative Lands GPA.  The proposed Project for the SEIR is based on community planning and sponsor group endorsed land use maps.

May 13, 2012 (San Diego)—San Diego’s Planning Commission voted unanimously to have staff evaluate health impacts of wind turbines on people and wildlife. Commissioners balked at approving a proposed county wind ordinance or changes to the Boulevard community plan that could make it easier to gain approval of large-scale wind projects—taking the sails out of the wind industry.
