Amador acts on settlement agreement; general plan lawsuit dismissed
On September 11, the Amador County Board of Supervisors adopted amendments to the county zoning code consistent with requirements of Foothill Conservancy’s general plan litigation settlement agreement. They also took other actions required by the agreement. We then filed a motion with the Amador County Superior Court to dismiss the case.

We described the pending code changes and other information in the last issue of the e-Focus. Considering this year’s tragic fires, it’s especially timely that the settlement required the county to make available wildland fire response and prevention information on its website, to real estate agents, and to buyers of new properties in high- and very high-fire risk zones. You can find that information online. We were pleased to help the county by identifying a number of those resources.

The board of supervisors voted 4-1 to adopt a motion to amend the zoning code, provide wildland fire information, and establish a general plan reporting and accountability system. District Five Supervisor Brian Oneto voted no, although he voted in favor of the settlement agreement last spring.
