Letter to the Editor~by Tom Infusino

March 18, 2010

Dear Editor, On behalf of the Calaveras Planning Coalition (CPC), thank you to everyone who has constructively participated in the General Plan Update (GPU) thus far, including our communities, our Supervisors, County Planning Staff, the consultants, and all stakeholders. The CPC supports Alternative Map B as the best expression of the Coalition’s desire to reduce the cost of public infrastructure and services, to provide for economic growth, to maintain the integrity of existing communities, to sustain the productivity of working landscapes, and to preserve our rural character, which is so highly prized by residents and tourists alike. ....

The CPC supports General Plan policies and programs that will promote a diverse, resilient, and sustainable local economy that builds on the county’s assets including labor, natural resources, and small business sense. The CPC supports the integrity of existing communities as the centers of community life and the appropriate location for future investment. The CPC supports economic incentives to maintain the viability of agriculture. The CPC supports the reduction of sprawl.

The CPC does not support Alternative Map A, because it represents the continuation of development patterns that have encouraged high-cost, inefficient sprawling development that eats up the open space and working landscapes that make this county rural.

Because no Alternative Map is perfect for every acre the first time around, the CPC encourages people to put their suggestions for improvement to Alternative Map B in writing, and to submit them to the County Planning Department as soon as possible at 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas, CA 95249 or The County will also accept letters of support for the Alternative Maps at these addresses. This is the time to engage in the process with constructive solutions. Our job as citizens and stakeholders is to stay focused on providing our useful feedback and input. Please get involved and stay involved.
