Adopted Tulare County General Plan 2030
On Aug. 28, the Tulare County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to approve the Tulare County General Plan 2030 Update.
In addition, the Supervisors certified the Final Environmental Impact Report and adopted a Climate Action Plan, a document
that outlines how to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions as new development occurs.
On behalf of the Board of Supervisors, "I would like to thank staff for years of hard work and dedication," said Allen Ishida,
Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. "I would also like to thank the residents who participated in the process, especially
those who were opposed to the County's General Plan Update. They were instrumental in helping the County formulate a sound and
good General Plan Update."
The Tulare County General Plan 2030 Update provides a comprehensive, long-term plan for the future land use and physical
development of the County though the year 2030. The Plan promotes healthy sustainable growth while protecting agricultural
lands by directing growth to urban areas. The General Plan Update consists of policies that set forth objectives, principles
and standards that guide future land use decisions within the County.
Tulare County Resource Management Agency staff has been working on the General Plan Update since 2003. During the update
process a series of 19 workshops, 11 Board of Supervisors meetings, 12 technical advisory committee meetings and four joint
Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission meetings were held to discuss, review, recommend and provide public input.
