Document Description
The proposed project implements improvements recommended in the Yreka Creek Greenway Master Plan (as adopted in August 2005) including creation of a new trailhead and multi-purpose trail along a northern reach of Yreka Creek and improvements at the existing Greenway development at the Visitor's Center. The project also includes floodplain enhancement and habitat restoration along Yreka Creek in an effort to reduce impacts of flooding on downstream properties. The project addresses numerous regional and regulatory priorities and provides ancillary benefits to water quality, ground water recharge, and improvements to aquatic and riparian habitat along Yreka Creek, an anadromous fishery. The proposed project is designed to increase recreational opportunities within the City of Yreka as well as improve habitat and flood attenuation in an effort to reduce flood effects on the City's WWTP and properties within the northern portion of the City. This project, in combination with previously completed and future planned stormwater management projects, is part of a cumulative effort by the City of Yreka to reduce flood impacts in combination with new open space recreation on properties along Yreka throughout the City.
