Conservation and Open Space Element Update

The City of Grover Beach is working on an update to the Conservation and Open Space Elements of its General Plan, which are two of the State mandated General Plan elements. State law requires the Conservation Element address topics such as water, floodwater, rivers and soils while the Open Space Element is required to address natural resources, outdoor recreation, and tribal resources.

The Draft Conservation and Open Space (COS) Elements can be viewed here. The City Council received a presentation on the Draft COS Elements on March 2, 2020. 

The Public Review Draft of the Initial Study - Negative Declaration (IS-ND) has been prepared in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and is available to review by clicking here.

Written comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. on June 22, 2020 via mail to: City of Grover Beach, Community Development Department, Subject: Conservation and Open Space Update, 154 South 18th Street, Grover Beach, CA 93433, or via email to: commdev@groverbeach.org
