INTRODUCTION

The Stewardship Council Board of Directors adopted the Land Conservation Plan Volumes I and II (LCP) at its meeting on November 28, 2007. The LCP establishes the framework and management objectives for the permanent protection of more than 140,000 acres of PG&E’s watershed lands. Please email the Stewardship Council at land@stewardshipcouncil.org if you would like to receive a copy of the LCP on CD-Rom. It will also be available in hardcopy format, for public viewing, in designated public buildings in each of the 22 counties where the Watershed Lands are located.

VOLUME I: THE LAND CONSERVATION FRAMEWORK

Volume I of the LCP establishes the overall framework for the document, including legal requirements, the planning process, methodologies, public involvement, and discussion of relevant regulatory processes.

VOLUME II: PLANNING UNIT RECOMMENDED CONCEPTS

Volume II of the LCP documents existing conditions and presents management objectives, measures, and conceptual plans to preserve and/or enhance six Beneficial Public Values (BPVs) on the more than 140,000 acres of lands (referred to as the Watershed Lands and Carrizo Plain). The lands were organized by watershed, and subsequently into 47 Planning Units.

PUBLIC COMMENTS AND RESPONSES TO COMMENTS ON VOLUME I & II

The Stewardship Council received nearly 1,300 written comments on the Draft LCP Volumes I and II. All public comments received in writing, and the responses to those comments, are included in a separate document that accompanies the Final LCP ("Public Comments and Response to Comments on LCP Volume I & II.").

VOLUME III: LAND CONSERVATION AND CONVEYANCE PLANS (LCCPs)

Volume III consists of LCCPs, to be issued serially and cumulatively, that will encompass a series of real estate transaction packages detailing the specific land conservation and/or disposition requirements for each parcel or parcel cluster.
