Breaking news: Board sends SPI rezone back for environmental review
Instead of approving the rezone applications, the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, March 13, sent the applications back to planning staff for more environmental review.
The staff will do an initial study and identify areas where there may be impacts on the environment, County Counsel Craig Settlemire said. If the staff determines those impacts are not significant, the county may issue a negative declaration, and require no further environmental review. Or it could impose mitigation measures to reduce any environmental impacts to less than significant. If the impacts are significant, the county may require an environmental impact report.
SPI’s plan, which wouldn’t take affect for 10 years, includes rezoning 4,860 acres from timber production zone to agricultural forest and 638 acres from TPZ to Upland Conservation/ Resource Management and Natural Habitat Combining District, known as the UC2 zone.
SPI wants to change the zoning on one parcel at Eagle Lake, one near Westwood east of Goodrich Creek, one near Silver Lake and one west of Susanville.
