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.

Since 1916 in New York when the first zoning ordinance was passed it was obvious that zoning ordinances were not perfect. Sometimes requirements cannot be met and best use of land languishes because of a parcel’s peculiarities or un-anticipated changes in the neighborhood, the economy or demographics. Therefore, flexibility is needed in the zoning laws. Complex rules and rigid enforcement cause economic stagnation and unnecessary hardship on property owners and with no benefit to society whatsoever.....
