Title
Chief Administrative Office, Parks Division requests that the Planning Commission review the final draft of the Summer 2017 updated River Management Plan and provide recommendations regarding staff’s proposed updates to the River Management Plan.
Body
Background
Chief Administrative Office, Parks Division requests that the Planning Commission review the final draft of the Summer 2017 updated River Management Plan and provide recommendations regarding staff’s proposed updates to the River Management Plan.

Staff will forward the Planning Commission’s recommendations to the Board of Supervisors including the content of the final draft of the River Management Plan update, which will serve as the Project Description for the preparation of a California Environmental Quality Act Initial Study document.

The project consists of the update of the El Dorado County River Management Plan, which focuses on whitewater recreation on the 20.7-mile segment of the South Fork of the American River between the Chili Bar Dam, near State Highway 193, and the confluence of the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. Since the early 1980’s the County has managed commercial and non-commercial white water recreation in this area to enhance the public health, safety, and welfare and to preserve environmental values.

The objective of this River Management Plan update is based on the County’s understanding of what management actions have been found to be logical, supportive of safe river use, effective in minimizing conflicts between river users and consistent with the County’s environmental protection commitments. The management plan addresses current conditions by recognizing that some past River Management Plan tasks and monitoring elements are now unnecessary, unresponsive to the County’s stated river management goals or duplicative of work being done by other County departments, governmental agencies or private organizations.

A Staff Memo is attached.
