How does the General Plan affect development?
The General Plan establishes policies for regulating new development projects within the unincorporated portions of the County. These policies are then translated into implementation tools (such as the zoning ordinance, subdivision regulations, and design guidelines) to assure that the County's vision is implemented. It also serves as a policy guide for how the county will interact with the six cities within the county regarding their growth and future expansion plans.
