Possible Finding of No Significant Public Interest Value at North Fork Mokelumne River Planning Unit

The Stewardship Council Board approved a Land Conservation and Conveyance plan (LCCP) for lands to be retained by PG&E at the North Fork Mokelumne planning unit on November 19, 2014.

One parcel within this planning unit, parcel 991 (1.8 acres), has been conditionally approved by the Stewardship Council Watershed Planning Committee (Planning Committee) for a finding of no significant public interest value (NSPIV). If this proposed finding is approved by the Stewardship Council Board, parcel 991 will not be included in the North Fork Mokelumne Retained Lands LCCP, and will not be encumbered by a conservation easement. No change will be made to PG&E’s ownership and operation of the parcel. All existing agreements between PG&E and adjacent landowners will not be affected. This proposed finding was made after evaluating the parcel and coming to the conclusion that it does not contain, nor does it have the potential for significant habitat, forestry, agricultural, recreational, or open space value.

The proposed finding of no significant public interest value for parcel 991 will be considered for possible approval by the Stewardship Council’s Board of Directors at its May 2nd, 2018 meeting. Public Comments will be accepted through the day of the meeting and the Board will review public comments before taking a vote. The meeting will be held at the Gaia Shasta Hotel at 4125 Riverside Place, Anderson, CA beginning at 1:00 pm. The meeting agenda will be posted on our web site on April 25th, 2018, one week prior to the meeting.

Comments regarding this proposed finding may be submitted in advance of the meeting by email to: info@stewardshipcouncil.org. There will also be an opportunity for public comment at the board meeting. Please contact Lauren Faccinto at 916-297-6664 with questions or concerns.
