Property rights Alert for Calaveras County!

On October 28th there will be a joint meeting with the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission to discuss the General Plan Update. Some of the changes being proposed could have a significant impact on property values. 

Here are just a couple of examples from maps on display in the Planning Department:

Many parcels designated Single Family Residential 5 acre minimum (yellow) on the current Land Use map were changed to “Resource Production” (light green) which only allows 1 Dwelling per 40 acres.

At the same time, population density increases tremendously in some areas, from Single Family Residential 5 acres (yellow) to up to 12 dwelling units per acre (pink).

It appears that some people who thought they were moving to the country may suddenly find themselves in areas slated for high density neighborhoods. And some people who invested in development property for their retirement may lose that investment.

Some argue that land use is not the same thing as zoning, but according to the former Calaveras County Planning Director, Rebecca Willis, after the General Plan is adopted, the County will need to identify areas where the zoning is in conflict with the new General Plan and do a zoning amendment.

Those who value property rights should attend this meeting!
