Community Plans for Charleston View, Tecopa and Shoshone
The communities located in southeast part of Inyo County are often overlooked due to the low population and remote nature of the area. Recently
there has been a new focus on this part of the county due to the REGPA, the proposed Hidden Hills Solar project, an increased interest in tourism
and elevating concerns about diminishing water availability. The recent approval of the County’s REGPA brought forth many of these issues.
Charleston View had a Solar Energy Development Area (SEDA) identified within it. There has been a growing, recent, interest in federal
designations for the public lands in and surrounding the communities in Southeast Inyo County. Potential National Land Scape Conservation Lands
were identified in the Draft Desert Renewable Energy Plan for public lands in and near Charleston View. Due to this new increasing interest in the
area the County Board of Supervisors directed staff to begin preparing Specific Plans for Charleston View, Tecopa and Shoshone.

On October 5th, 6th and 7th 2016, public visioning meetings were held in Charleston View, Tecopa
and Shoshone. These meetings were very well attended and the participants worked hard with County staff to develop 'Vision Statements' for each community. These statements will act as the guiding principles for each plan.
Charleston View Vision Statement: Charleston View is a homegrown community focused on innovatively
sustaining life, history and culture for one another.
Tecopa Vision Statement: Tecopa is a forward thinking, technologically advanced, community and destination that preserves relaxation and encourages discovery.
Shoshone Vision Statement: Shoshone is a community of residents and visitors who enjoy it as a base camp for ecotourism, history and the natural environment of the area.
The Existing Conditions Reports are completed and staff will be presenting them to the Planning Commission on Wednesday April 27, 2016 - see below
