Document Description
The North Etiwanda Preserve (NEP or Preserve) consists of 762 acres of primarily Riversidian Alluvial Fan Sage Scrub (RAFSS) habitat located northerly of the City of Rancho Cucamonga and easterly of Day Creek. This property was purchased by the San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) to be preserved as natural habitat as full mitigation for impacts to similar habitat associated with development of State Route 30, also known as the 210 Freeway project. The NEP consists of about 568 acres of RAFSS and about 194 acres of other sensitive habitat. On February 24, 1998, SANBAG granted a Conservation Easement to the County of San Bernardino (County) subject to the terms of a Cooperative Management Agreement (Agreement) adopted by the County on February 10,1998. County Service Area (CSA) 70. Improvement Zone OS-1 is responsible for management and operation of the Preserve subject to the advice and input of a District Board established to advise on the management of the District (CSA 70, Improvement Zone OS-1) and the ultimate decision-making authority of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors. The purpose of the Conservation Easement is to preserve the conservation values of the NEP and prevent use of the Preserve for purposes other than those specifically allowed by the easement.
