Document Description
A Special Permit for major vegetation removal per 313-64.1, Humboldt County Coastal Regulations, in a residential zone where it is not a principally permitted use. Portions of the parcel were cut under a Pacific Gas & Electric easement project several years ago. Follow-on treatment of the harvest area by the applicant resulted in the removal of the remaining stumps/slash and minor grading. No mature, healthy and/or scenic trees are removed by the applicant; however, the clearing activity may have inadvertenly removed, western azaleas, considered a regionally sensitive species. A Mitigation Plan for the planning of western azaleas from local seed stock is proposed. The parcel lies within an area of the North Coast Area Plan which has not been certified by the State Coastal Commission. The applicant shall obtain a Coastal Development Permit from the State for major vegetation removal in this area.
