The proposed Project changed the land use designations for a limited number of private parcels in the communities of Alpine, Cuyamaca, Julian, and Campo/Lake Morena, totaling approximately 400 acres that are adjacent to former Forest Conservation Initiative Lands (FCI) lands. This action is intended to consider changed circumstances and to ensure that these lands are designated in a manner consistent with the changes proposed for the former FCI lands.


On December 8, 2010 the Board of Supervisors directed staff to prepare a General Plan Amendment for the Forest Conservation Initiative Lands (FCI) consistent with the adopted General Plan land use designations. The FCI was a voter-approved initiative which required that private lands within the Cleveland National Forest in San Diego County have a minimum lot size of 40 acres. The FCI was originally approved in 1993 and expired on December 31, 2010. The land use map changes adopted as part of the General Plan Update did not include FCI lands. When the FCI expired, the areas affected by the FCI reverted to the land use designations in effect before the FCI was enacted. As a result, the General Plan Update land use designations, Guiding Principles and Policies are not consistent with those currently applied to the former FCI lands.
