The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2013-0186-R5, pursuant to section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Lost Canyons, LLC., as represented by John McClure.
The whole of the Project is the alteration of the Tapo Canyon Creek and Dry Canyon Creek watersheds, where the residential development of Phases A and B of the Lost Canyons Project will occur. The project includes a 364-lot residential development, natural open space, a multi-purpose trail system, and an area for the renovation of an existing golf course and related commercial recreational amenities. Dry Canyon Creek and Tapo Canyon Creek will be permanently impacted due to grading activities, placement of up to six bridge crossings, fuel modification, an earthen-bottom golf cart crossing, vegetation removal/trimming to maintain line of sight for a golf course hole and clearance for the golf cart crossing, and road widening. A total of 3.769 acres of CDFW streambed jurisdiction will be permanently impacted by project activities and a total of 3.076 acres of CDFW jurisdiction will be temporarily impacted by project activities. An additional 0.88-acre area of CDFW jurisdictional riparian vegetation will be trimmed to maintain golf course line of sight, and up to 0.05 acre may be trimmed to maintain clearance through a golf cart crossing.
