Bidwell-Sacramento River State Park
Commission Approved General Plan
Approved by the California State Park and Recreation Commission on March 3, 2006, the Bidwell-Sacramento River State Park General Plan will guide park management and resource stewardship for the next 20 + years. The Final General Plan and Environmental Impact Report is provided below, which includes the text and map revisions reflected in the Bidwell-Sacramento River SP Recirculated Draft EIR for the Preliminary General Plan (Agricultural Resources) dated October 2005.
As is the case with the following document, general plans create a framework which guides day-to-day decision-making within the Park. Further, general plans provide a basis for developing focused management plans, specific project plans, and other proposals which implement the general plan’s goals. However, General Plans stop short of defining specific measures and/or timeframes for fulfilling these goals.
On December 12, 2003, the California Department of Parks and Recreation released to the general public and public agencies the Preliminary General Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for Bidwell-Sacramento River State Park. Based on subsequent consideration of the analysis of agricultural resources included in the DEIR, a Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report was prepared by the Department for the Bidwell-Sacramento River State Park General Plan. A 30-day public review and comment period was provided for the Recirculated DEIR from October 18, 2005 to November 17, 2005. In response to the public interest in this issue the Department extended the public review period to January 9, 2006.
On March 3, 2006 at its regular meeting in Chico, California, the California State Park and Recreation Commission approved the General Plan and Environmental Impact Report. The Notice of Determination was filed with the Office of Planning and Research on March 10, 2006.
