The 2004 El Dorado County General Plan establishes a Land Use Designation for each parcel of land in the county.  State law requires the County's Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Maps to be consistent with the adopted General Plan.  This research paper addresses the relationship between General Plan Land Use Designations and the Zoning Ordinance, the type of changes in the recent Targeted General Plan Amendment and Zoning Ordinance Update (TGPA/ZOU), and the myths, misconceptions and misrepresentations by opponents of the General Plan.
