At its September 20, 2017 meeting the board adopted the proposed Land Conservation and Conveyance Plan for lands to be retained by PG&E at the Lake Oroville planning unit in Butte County.
The LCCP describes how the proposed transaction and related agreements conform to and fulfill all requirements of the 2003 Settlement Agreement and Stipulation.
The board also approved the proposed conservation easement funding agreement between the Stewardship Council and the Northern California Regional Land Trust.
The draft LCCP was made available for a public review and comment period from July 21, 2017 to August 21, 2017.

Proposed Finding of No Significant Public Interest Value - Oroville Parcel 679
The Stewardship Council is working with PG&E and local land trusts across the state to develop and record conservation easements on lands that PG&E owns and operates. The Stewardship Council Watershed Planning Committee (Planning Committee) has conditionally endorsed a finding of no significant public interest value (NSPIV) for parcel 679 at the Oroville planning unit, an approximately 6 acre parcel owned and operated by PG&E. 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 679 will be considered for possible approval by the Stewardship Council’s Board of Directors at its January, 2018 meeting. If this proposed finding is approved by the Stewardship Council Board, parcel 679 will not be encumbered by a conservation easement. No change will be made to PG&E’s ownership and operation of the parcel. Existing agreements between PG&E and adjacent landowners will not be affected.
The Board will review public comments before taking a vote on the proposed NSPIV finding. The meeting location and date will be posted on our website prior to December 1, 2017. The meeting agenda will be posted on our web site one week prior to the meeting.
Please direct comments to: email@example.com. There will also be an opportunity for public comment at the board meeting. Please contact Lauren Faccinto at 916-297-6660 with questions or concerns.

Land Stewardship Proposals
On July 8, 2011, the Stewardship Council received one land stewardship proposal from the California Department of Water Resources (DWR), which is interested in being considered for a donation of fee title to certain lands located within the Oroville planning unit. DWR prepared and submitted the proposal and is responsible for the information contained therein. The proposal is presented as is, and the Stewardship Council does not make any assertion regarding the accuracy or completeness of the information presented, nor does the proposal necessarily reflect the views of the Stewardship Council. The Stewardship Council fully reviewed and considered all proposals before recommending organizations for donation of fee title to lands within the Oroville planning unit.
