Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains of reports and publications from the Santa Clara County Planning Department. It is primarily composed of environmental impact reports (EIRs) dating from the 1970s-1980s, with a smaller amount of published materials on other aspects of demography, land use, zoning, and development. The materials are mostly concerned with the area within Santa Clara County, with additional reports for the larger Santa Clara Valley and other California locations such as Los Angeles. There is one EIR for New Castle County, Delaware. The collection came with a card index which appears to correspond with the EIRs.
The Santa Clara County Planning Office is responsible for managing planning studies related to the county, reviewing development project proposals, zoning enforcement, and providing information on land use and demographic trends.
13 Linear Feet (9 rsbs, 7 manuscript boxes, 2 card boxes, 1 flat box)
