After four planning directors, 12 years, and umpteenmillion dollars, El Dorado County finally has a general plan. On August 31, the trial court found that the County had complied with its earlier ruling in 1999, which had set aside the 1996 General Plan. It remains to be seen if the opponents will purse their claims to the appellate court. El Dorado’s experience took the fun out of planning for a lot of folks.
