Established in 1991, BYLT’s mission is to create a balance between nature and the needs of the people who make a life and a livelihood in Nevada County. BYLT promotes voluntary conservation of natural, historical, and agricultural resources through protection and enhancement of natural areas, farms and ranches, trails, and parks to provide a lasting community heritage.  BYLT’s geographic focus is western Nevada County and the Sierra Foothills areas of Yuba and Sierra Counties.

This action will be considered by the board at its January 16, 2013 meeting in Sacramento. Please click here for meeting information. If the above recommendation is approved by the board and accepted by PG&E, transaction negotiations between the University of California, PG&E, and the prospective conservation easement donee at the Lake Spaulding planning unit would commence. The proposed transaction agreements would become part of a Land Conservation and Conveyance Plan (LCCP) to be considered for adoption by the board at a later date. The public will be given an opportunity to review and provide comment on the draft LCCP, and the comments received will be shared with the Watershed Planning Committee before the committee forwards the proposed LCCP to the board for its review and approval. Adoption of the LCCP by the board would be the final step in the Stewardship Council’s process for selecting donees. Transactions will be finalized upon LCCP review and approval by the California Public Utilities Commission.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the board meeting and address the board on this action. Inquiries regarding this recommendation can also be addressed to: comments14@stewardshipcouncil.org.
