  • Deputy shooting fallout: The children of a Portola man who was shot and killed at Eastern Plumas Health Care last year are seeking millions of dollars in damages.
  • The trout must go: The state is planning to pull all of the brook trout out of a Plumas County lake in order to protect the yellow-legged frog.
  • Inspections delayed: Cal Fire was scheduled to begin property inspections this week, but decided to wait until the public could better understand what the inspectors are doing.

Public hearing on general plan July 18

  The Plumas County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the general plan at the fairgrounds rather than in its normal meeting room, because a large crowd is anticipated.

  The public hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday, July 18, in the Mineral Building.

  Assistant Planner Becky Herrin said she expects the meeting to last most of the day, with a break at lunch.

  The planning commission is scheduled to discuss the final environmental impact report for the general plan update and recommend that the Board of Supervisors certify the document.

  The commission is also slated to consider changes to the general plan including those required by the environmental impact report and minor changes proposed by planning department staff.

  Ultimately, the commission will consider whether to recommend that the Board of Supervisors approve the general plan update.

  If the commission makes that decision then the general plan update will be forwarded to the supervisors, who also must conduct a public hearing.

  Based on prior attendance at meetings regarding the general plan, the commission is expecting many to attend and take advantage of the chance to comment on the environmental impact report and the general plan update.

  Documents are available for review in paper form and pickup in CD form at the address below. They may also be downloaded or viewed on the planning department’s website by going to countyofplumas.com and clicking on the “general plan update” box.

  Herrin said that the final environmental document is 500-plus pages including comments. Any individual or organization that submitted a comment will automatically receive all other comments.

  Those who cannot attend the public hearing may email their comments to randywilson@countyofplumas.com with the phrase “Plumas County General Plan EIR” typed in the subject line.

  Comments may also be mailed to Plumas County Planning and Building Services, 555 Main St., Quincy, CA 95971.
