Action Alert for Calaveras County Property Owners!

Calaveras County is proposing changing our land uses without getting permission from individual property owners.
This may very well have a considerable negative impact on many peoples’ lives (retirements, for example). Imagine the hoops property owners would have to jump through to make such changes to their properties!
Check to see how your property is being affected!
