On May 30, 2007, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors adopted Resolution No. 2007-0698  to initiate the General Plan Update project and begin environmental review of the Draft General Plan. All changes to the Draft General Plan directed by the Board during public workshops held over the last six months have been incorporated into the Draft Plan. On June 28, 2007, the Draft Plan was transmitted to the Department of Environmental Review and Assessment (DERA) to begin the environmental review process.

Subsequent to this transmission, a small number of inaccuracies were identified within the Draft Updated General Plan that needed to be corrected before environmental analysis began.
