Timetable for General Plan goes before supervisors

Jeff Munson, Tribune city editor

El Dorado County leaders anxious to hear the draft General Plan and environmental impact report will have to wait a few more months before it is released.

On Tuesday supervisors should be presented with a more definite time table for the General Plan document, which serves as a road map for future growth and development in El Dorado County.

The board meeting begins at 8 a.m. in the Board of Supervisors Meeting Room, 330 Fair Lane, Building A in Placerville.
