McKINLEYVILLE – County supervisors have approved workshop and meeting dates for the one of the General Plan Update’s most important milestones – its land use mapping phase.

The update’s land use maps will define the zoning and parcel designation changes that implement new policies. Affected property owners will have a chance to comment on how their parcels are being re-zoned through a series of workshops and meetings in June and July.

The workshop and board meeting schedule was approved at an April 27 update hearing. The board meetings will include all five county supervisors and the workshops will be less formal, with county planning staff and one supervisor attending.

While the board meetings will include public comment, the workshops will offer more individualized attention through one on one exchanges with planning staff members.

Affected property owners in each area of the county will be notified by mail regarding the meetings and workshops.

The Board of Supervisors meeting for the northern area of the county will be held in board chambers on June 22 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The board meeting for the county’s central area will be held on July 27, same place and time.

Other workshops will be held in Southern Humboldt, Willow Creek, Scotia and Eureka.

On Aug. 17, supervisors will review the non-binding straw votes they have taken on update policies.

In September, planning staff will review the draft update for consistency and begin another crucial phase – recirculation of the update’s Environmental Impact Report.

    Except that the land owner must be “noticed”, informed of any such ” amending”.

    The lie in the process is whether or not the agency sent out notice that was received, not just sent out. I can claim I mailed you this, not legally prove you received it.

    Such corruption to ” intentionally not inform”.

    “How to Protect Yourself
    How does a landowner protect his zoning in the face of a threatened downzoning? The first step is to keep informed of any pending revisions to the general plan or the formulation of specific plans covering the property. The landowner should appear at any hearings for such plans and explain why the zoning on his property should not be changed. This is very important, because if the landowner fails to appear, he will likely be told in later rezoning hearings that the city is merely carrying out the provisions of the plan, and that the landowner should have made his objections known when the plan was being adopted.”
