General Plan Biological Resources Policy Update
Picture of Oak Woodlands

The County is updating the biological resources policies and implementation measures in the General Plan and the County's former Oak Woodland Management Plan (OWMP), now referred to as Oak Resources Management Plan (ORMP). The project requires the completion of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR).

On March 8, 2017, the County released a Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for this Project. The Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for this project consists of the Final EIR and the Draft EIR (incorporated by reference in accordance with State CEQA Guidelines Section 15132). The Final EIR contains the public and agency comments received on the Draft EIR. All written comments received during the public review period (June 30, 2016 through August 15, 2016), and responses to each of those comments, are included in the Final EIR. The Final EIR also includes those pages from the Draft EIR and its appendices that have been revised in response to comments.

 On Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 2:00 p.m., the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing to receive public comment and prepare recommendations to the Board of Supervisors regarding the Final EIR and the General Plan Biological Resources Policy Update, ORMP, and Oak Resources Conservation Ordinance Project. The hearing will be held in the Building C Hearing Room at 2850 Fairlane Court, Placerville, CA 95667.  The Planning Commission Agenda is available online at: (Get link to the meeting details from Char).
