Present Land Use
Extractive Industrial / Extractive Industrial (M-2), Mineral Zone 2 (MRZ-2)
Document Description
The majority of the project site is characterized by active mining operations, a processing facility, siltation and freshwater ponds, a ridge of dredger tailings along the bank of the Yuba River south of the mining operations, and an unpaved portion of Walnut Avenue that enters the project site from Hallwood Boulevard to the west. The proposed end use of the project site following reclamation is open space. The Hallwood property is proposed to be reclaimed to a variety of open water and wildlife habitats. Reclamation is intended to enhance and compliment the aesthetic value of the site that was significantly altered as result of historical gold dredging operations that occurred from the 1890s through the mid-1900s.
