Our Vision:
Through our zoning and long-term land use practices, we desire to foster an environment where the future of Calaveras County reflects its rich history. In doing so, we place Calaveras County in a competitive position where it can attract industries in the areas of agriculture, commerce, tourism, and health and other services, including housing and housing programs needed to support these industries. The greater wellbeing of our residents is of paramount importance to our vision.
