Document Description
This Draft EIR focuses on the issue of tree maintenance in the Rancho Murieta Recreation Area (Recreation Area), a Sacramento County-owned parcel (APN: 073-0180-008-0000). The Recreation Area is located between the Rancho Murieta Airport and the north bank of the Cosumnes River, adjacent to Highway 16 in Rancho Murieta, Sacramento County. This parcel has been operated and maintained by the Department of Regional Parks since 1979. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Division of Aeronautics, is enforcing State Airport operating regulations that rely on Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) which govern the allowable height of objects near airports. Specifically, the County has been ordered by the Court to comply with Sacramento County Zoning Code Section 301-24 and California Public Utilities Code Section 21659 by removing obstructions to navigable airspace. To comply with this order, the County must address potential obstructions within the Recreation Area that are subject to the surfaces defined by Part 77, Subpart C of the Code of Federal Regulations (FAR Part 77) near the Airport. FAR Part 77 identifies the criteria that are used to define obstructions for airports and their surrounding airspace.
