Document Description
State Parks, with planning assistance from The Nature Conservancy (TNC), is proposing to implement the project on two parcels known as the Singh Unit and Nicolaus property (collectively known as the project site) along the Sacramento River within and adjacent to Bidwell-Sacramento River State Park (BSRSP or Park), west of the City of Chico in Butte Co., California. The Singh Unit is owned by State Parks and located within BSRSO. The Nicolaus property is currently owned by TNC, but would be transferred to State Parks, as part of the proposed project, prior to implementation of habitat restoration activities and recreation facilities development. After transfer of the Nicolaus property to State Parks, the current BSRSP headquarters (located in the Indian Fisheries subunit) would be relocated to the existing farm complex on the Nicolaus property, which is on higher, less frequently flooded ground than the current headquarters location. Both the Singh Unit and Nicolaus property are currently in agricultural production (walnut and/or almond orchards). There is a Williamson Act contract on the Nicolaus property. Prior to habitat restoration or recreation facilities development on the Nicolaus property, the contract will either be phased out, amended or a new contract will be executed, which allows for such uses.
