Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2005-0026-R5 of the Fish and Game Code to the project applicant, Mr. Steve Letterly, The Irvine Company. The applicant proposes to alter the streambed and banks through the development of Phase II of The Irvine Company's Planning Area 6 (1A6) residential housing development, impacting Bee Canyon Wash, Round Canyon Wash, Tomato Springs Wash, Agua Chinon Wash, and unnamed drainages within the San Diego Creek Watershed. The proposed PA6 - Phase II development (746.89 acres) will incorporate a mixture of residential (215.28 acres), recreational areas (44.84 acres), open space (224.70 acres), landscaping and slopes (164.05 acres), roads (86.83 acres), and institutional (11.19 acres) uses. A large portion of the project site consists of actively farmed agricultural and nursery lands, and is generally located east of Irvine Boulevard, west of undeveloped land, south of State Hwy. 241, north of the Marine Corps Air Station El Toro. PA 6 is part of the Northern Sphere Area development project which provides for a master-planned community within the City of Irvine and is consistent with the objectives of the City's General Plan. The applicant shall not impact more than 4.81 acres of stream channel, of which 2.95 acres consist of vegetated riparian habitat. All impacts associated with the proposed project are permanent. The applicant shall mitigate 4.81 acres of permanent impacts to stream channel and associated riparian vegetation at a compensation to impact ratio of approximately 2:1, for a total mitigation obligation of 9.6 acres.
