Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2005-0231-R5 pursuant to Section 1602 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 by filling approximately 9.24 acres for the purpose of developing The Irvine Company's Planning Area 1 (PA 1) residential housing development, impacting portions of North Fork of Rattlesnake Canyon Wash and other unnamed tributaries to Rattlesnake Reservoir, Rattlesnake Creek, Hicks Canyon Wash, and five other unnamed tributaries to San Diego Creek. The proposed PA 1 development (1,471 acres) of an approximately 4,000-acre site will incorporate a mixture of residential, recreational areas, institutional, and community commercial uses. This acreage does not include orchards, open spaces, water quality basins, backbone Street, perimeter landscape lots, and windows. PA 1 is part of the Northern Sphere Area development project within the City of Irvine. The Operator will mitigate 9.24 acres of permanent impacts to stream channel and associated riparian vegetation at compensation to impact ratio of approximately 1.5:1, for a total mitigation obligation of 13.9 acres. Due to the limited impacts to jurisdictional resources for Phase 1 of PA 6, this Planning Area will be permitted ahead of the San Diego Creek Watershed Special Area Management Plan/Master Streambed Alteration Agreement. The Agreement authorizes the applicant to proceed with those parts of the project that will impact the above described streambed and bank pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 1602. This Notice of Determination applies only to CDFG's issuance of the Agreement , and not to the project as a whole.
