Document Description
The proposed project (Deer Creek Tribute Trail and Restoration Project) extends from Pioneer Park in Nevada City to Newtown Rd. along both sides of Deer Creek and crosses the jurisdictional boundaries of Nevada Co., Nevada City and Bureau of Land Management. For purposes of this Initial Study, three management plans have been prepared to address project impacts to steep slopes, oak trees and groves, and non-disturbance buffers to water features. Within County jurisdictions, the project proposes to construct five new trail segments, two pedestrian bridges, make road-widening safety improvements at five locations on Champion Rd., and install directional and interpretive signage.
