Document Description
Redwood National and State Parks proposes to develop a maintenance facility in a 10-acre field (the "Midway" site) in the middle of the Aubell Ranch property near Crescent City, California. The new facility is needed to combine the maintenance operations of state and national parks into a single facility located closer to reliable transportation and supply networks for increased efficiency and long term cost effectiveness. It would replace a CDPR maintenance complex formerly located at Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park that was destroyed by fire, and would also replace an aging NPS maintenance facility at the Requa area, in a geologically unstable area. The new maintenance facility would be sited outside of a 125 foot setback from an unmanned intermittent tributary of Elk Creek. The land occupied by the proposed facility and the rights-of-way for the utility systems, including a leach field, are currently owned by CDPR. As part of the project, the National Park Service boundary will be adjusted to include the entire 69.9 acre Aubell property. In addition, the State will transfer ownership of about 17 acres of the land included in the boundary adjustment to NPS for a 75-year period, after which the agreement can be renegotiated.
