With the San Diego County “2020” General Plan Update delayed due to EIR
preparation, EHL is closely monitoring destructive development projects.
Developers are proposing to subdivide cattle ranches near the eastern San

In these and many more cases, EHL has submitted comments on CEQA

realize the promise of the 2020 Update and to help ensure the success
of the northern
segment of the County’s Multiple Species Conservation Program, which is
now in the planning phase.
