Upcoming Zoning Code Seminar

Joint Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission Meeting

We invite you to attend the Trinity County Zoning Code Seminar on Thursday, May 23rd! The Zoning Code Seminar will be presented at a joint special meeting of the Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission. The public is also invited to attend to learn about what zoning is, what zoning can and can't do, and to hear an overview of legislation that will impact the county's Zoning Code Update. This meeting is not intended to focus on specific zoning fixes for Trinity County, but is meant to provide a general overview of how a jurisdiction can and should update its zoning.

This meeting is the first of several zoning-specific engagement efforts with the public and elected and appointed officials. The final Zoning Code Update will focus on implementing the 2050 General Plan as well as recent State and Federal regulations.
