Materials for May 16th
The following information will be discussed at the next ACCG meeting. Please take some time to review and come to the meeting prepared to discuss these. Discussion of these items should be kept to a minimum (less than 15 min), as the Planning Committee has already met and discussed the following 3 Cornerstone projects.
Power Fire Ecological Restoration: Continue NEPA process to complete ecological restoration analyses that would create mosaic of landscape conditions that includes the redevelopment of mature forest vegetation and native tree species, restoration of riparian and sensitive plant areas, management of noxious weeds, reduction of fuel loading, and the restoration of spotted owl protected activity centers and critical deer winter range; Amador Ranger District.
Bailey Plantation Health Improvement: Plantation thinning (302 acres), riparian, meadow and hardwood rehabilitation (7.8 acres), and road work for watershed rehabilitation; Calaveras Ranger District.
West Calaveras Plantation Thin: Complete NEPA for approximately 547 acres of plantation thinning, restoration of special aquatic features, and road work for watershed rehabilitation; Calaveras Ranger District.
The planning committee is suggesting ACCG concurrence with the planning and/or implementation of these Cornerstone projects.
