Updated General Plan Triggers Zoning Changes for Almost 7,000 Parcels in Calaveras County ~ By Planning Commissioner Tim Laddish

San Andreas, CA...I am a Calaveras County planning commissioner.  On March 9, the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors will be considering the rezoning of almost 7000 parcels in the County to make the zoning consistent with the 2019 General Plan or to replace temporary “U” (Unclassified) zoning with specific zoning.





No individual notices of proposed zone changes have been sent to landowners.  Your land might be rezoned by the approval of this map.  You might agree or disagree with any proposed zoning change.  If you have questions about whether your property is affected and, if so, how it is affected, go to planning.calaverasgov.us/ and click on the “ZONING” tab on the box at the top right.  Then click on “Zoning Map Help” and follow the directions.  Comments or questions can be directed to the Planning Department at (209) 754-6394 or PlanningWeb@co.calaveras.ca.us.

A zoning change on your property could be very important to you either now or in the future.  The Planning Commission has approved the proposed zoning map, and that map’s zoning changes will be considered by the Board of Supervisors on March 9.  To comment to the Board of Supervisors on any of the proposed changes, go to bos.calaverasgov.us and click on the green “Learn How to stay Engaged here!” under “Change in Business Practices . . . .”  Specify that your comment concerns the zoning map amendment agenda item on the March 9 agenda.

Tim Laddish

Completely mind-boggling that the supervisors would change the zoning on 7,000 parcels without informing the property owners. What the hell is up with that? God forbid you do anything on your own property without telling them. Thank you Mr. Laddish.

    What don't you understand about this meeting?
    The Supervisors are meeting to discuss the unclassified parcels. This means you can hear and give input before any decisions are made.
    Chicken Littles are loose.

      Government owes owners a letter of notification at the very least. Not everyone is on the Pine Tree.

      Typically when a landowner requests a zoning change the county notifies all adjacent landowners within 600 (?) feet. This is to provide neighboring owners ample opportunity to comment on the proposed zoning change.

      However, it seems the county believes itself immune from the very same standard. It would seem the letter of the law would not only require the county to notify the owner of the property whose zoning is being changed, but every landowner within 600 feet of the subject parcel.

      Very odd the county has shown almost no initiative in disclosing this to to public. Is this just hubris, tone deafness? Or something on the sneak?

      No. Not chicken littles. Astute property owners with non-classified parcels may want to take a look at this. Are supes trying to zone for more pot and lie to us? The Urgency Ordinance at least limited numbers and square footage. From Laddish to Plotnik, to Callaway and more, these folks are not protecting anyone except their contributors. Not the way to go.

          Really? Install a commercial grow site (or better yet a state-allowed butane lab she's pushing) next to Merita Callaway's place on Sandalwood Drive. She may not get Forest Meadows Neighbor of the Year again this year, especially when she went on public record saying she would "not mind it" if a commercial cannabis grow site was next door to her. Cool!

          You can do that just with 6 plants per 21 year old adult on a property. We have enough commercial growers already. Or go to another county?

    The 2019-2020 Calaveras County Civil Grand Jury wrote a report about this and you can find it on the Calaveras Grand Jury website. Additional tax bills are issued when updated property value assessments are completed. The Assessor's Office is responsible for assessing the value of property. When there is a backlog in property assessments, tax bills do not reflect the accurate value until the assessment is current and additional bills help make up the difference when you are undertaxed. It is confusing but if you wish to clear up your confusion, contact the Assessor's Office. Or, read the Grand Jury Report!

      Does this mean they're going to allow more commercial cannabis cultivation on more properties?

        That is entirely possible, and likely.

    It just boggles my mind how this woman, Calaveras County Assessor Leslie Davis got re-elected. She blamed all the problems on an employee that she should have been checking and overseeing. The list of inept elected officials and employees just keeps increasing. Much of the county is now in shambles.

    Property taxes increased due to computer glitch

I sold a family member property and I'm still getting tax bills for it three years later, even though they are the owners of record. Good thing our family talks.

    Get it on the Sacramento/Stockton news! Make complaints to higher ups. State Rep, Congress, Senate. This county needs spring house cleaning.

      Really, you think calling the fake local news, and the Enterprise isn't much better, is going to help. We live in a corrupt and a cheating elected state.

    Sounds like what this will actually do is make it easier for previously “U” zoned parcels to be developed into housing.
    So we’re in a perpetual drought, with nearly year round fire danger, and zero green belt to protect existing structures, but let’s build more.
    Anyone else think this is a stupid plan?

      I expect it's just a sign of the times. No more unclassified property so pick your development type - ag, commercial or residential.

Tim Laddish talking about zoning is as reliable as a DJ doing back surgery. From 2019 : Planning Commissioners Tim Laddish and Brett Henderson stated on Public Record they do not want to live next to a marijuana grow. Brett said he doesn't want his children exposed to marijuana. Then they both okayed useless public nuisance 6' tall see-through chain link fences that can't keep a 3 year old out, and commercial marijuana in residential areas. Plotnik, a Merita minion, blithely nods and goes along. We know that commercial pot is not good near us. It's funny how Laddish does too.

    Maybe Mr. Laddish is simply open minded enough to support other people's rights though he may not choose to participate in the behavior itself. I don't own a gun, or go to church, or drive a polluting, lifted Dodge diesel, however I support the rights of those who choose to do so. In some cases, I actually appreciate their choice.
