Draft #3 of the Preferred Land Use Alternative Map for Butte County General Plan 2030 as approved by the Butte County Board of Supervisors.  The Exhibit Maps provided here represent the FINAL Butte County General Plan 2030 Land Use Map that shows the General Plan designations for the entire unincorporated portion of Butte County.  This map was approved by the Butte County Board of Supervisors on April 14, 2009.  The following Exhibit Maps have been created to view different portions of the Final Land Use Map.  This map will be incorporated into the first DRAFT of Butte County General Plan 2030, which will be discussed during the upcoming Workshop Series #7...check the homepage for meeting dates:

These maps are in a PDF file format, and can be opened with the Adobe Acrobat Reader.  Each of these maps allows you to “zoom” in on specific areas to show more detail.  If you are interested in specific areas it is recommended that you open the map for that area.  If you want the very best resolution to view close-in detail, Countywide Map #1 should be used, although it is a larger file and will take longer to download.

It is important to note that these exhibits show General Plan designations and not Zoning Districts.   The General Plan directs where a variety of land uses will be used throughout the county.  Specific Zoning Districts are required to be consistent with the General Plan designations, but show more specific detail concerning minimum parcel sizes, allowed land uses, and conditionally allowed uses.  It is also important to note that the Butte County General Plan process is still underway and the final General Plan has not been adopted by the Board of Supervisors, which is scheduled for late 2010.

The Deer Herd Overlay Map was also approved by the Board of Supervisors on April 14, 2009.  This map is provided to show County areas where the Deer Herd Overlay will be applied and is part of the General Plan Land Use Map.  Areas within the Deer Herd General Plan Overlay will be zoned at the appropriate 20-acre (Winter Range) or 40-acre (Critical Winter Range) minimum parcel size. 

Two important series of meetings are coming up that pertain to both the Draft Butte County General Plan 2030 and the new Zoning Ordinance.  A public Draft of Butte County General Plan 2030 will be released in August of 2009.  This Public Draft represents the culmination of over 2.5 years of work under the Butte County General Plan 2030 process.  A series of meetings (Meeting Series #7, tentatively scheduled from September 2009 through February 2010) will take place that will include a Public Workshop, Citizens Advisory Committee meetings, and Special Meetings with the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors will be devoted to the review and approval of the Draft General Plan 2030.  Another series of meetings (Meeting Series #8, tentatively scheduled from November 2009 through March 2010) will be devoted to the review and approval of the Butte County Zoning Ordinance. A public Draft of the new Zoning Ordinance will also be available in August of 2009.

There are many ways to stay involved in this process.  You may sign up to receive email updates on this website.  Development Services staff will keep you apprised of the specific meeting dates, times and locations for all of the meetings scheduled under Butte County General Plan 2030.  We welcome public attendance at all of these meetings and encourage you to review all of the material and make comments that will be provided to the Citizens Advisory Committee, Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors.  The Butte County General Plan 2030 website is updated with new information as it becomes available and is a great resource for anyone wishing to learn more about the process and to stay involved.
