The Villages of Lakeview SP342 Update

The Villages of Lakeview Specific Plan was approved by the Board of Supervisors on February 23, 2010. The project was challenged in Court and the Court issued a judgment on July 11, 2012. In that judgment, the Court directed the Board of Supervisors to set aside the approvals, which the Board of Supervisors did on August 28, 2012. In that judgment the Court issued a number of corrections that would need to be made before it could be brought back before the Board of Supervisors for action. Since the approval was set aside, the applications for the project remain active. 

A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) is now available and the comment period is now open.  Please see the DEIR webpage for documents for review
