Diamond Bar : General Plan Annulled

March 18, 1993

The Diamond Bar City Council has voted to annul its General Plan and begin holding a series of public hearings in order to revise it.

The vote Tuesday night was prompted by a judge's ruling in January ordering the city to either rescind and revise the plan or put it to a vote.

The council voted unanimously Tuesday to schedule hearings to collect public input before the city drafts a new General Plan.

Controversy over the General Plan erupted last year when a citizens group, Diamond Bar Citizens to Protect Country Living, petitioned to put the plan to a vote.

Referendum proponents said the General Plan is insensitive to the environment and does not protect areas such as Tonner Canyon, one of Los Angeles County's last large undeveloped areas.

City Manager Terrence L. Belanger said the General Plan was adopted last summer after substantial public input and a $500,000, three-year effort to come up with a fair document.
