Proposed Finding of No Significant Public Interest Value- Fall River Mills Parcel 133

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 133 at the Fall River Mills planning unit, an approximately 2 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 133 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 133 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 by December 1, 2017. The meeting agenda will be posted on our web site 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 916-297-6660 with questions or concerns.
