Buenaventura Trail Widening and Gold Run Creek Watershed Restoration, JO# 9614-40 (ED-01-19)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The City of Redding proposes a trail widening and restoration project on the Buenaventura Trail. The Carr Fire burned through the Redding area severely damaging ten bridges and the vegetation along Buenaventura Trail. The existing 4-foot wide trail does not provide adequate construction access to rebuild the bridges with fire resistant materials. The proposed project includes widening the trail to 8-feet removing burned vegetation, installing erosion control materials to protect the trail and Gold Run Creek, installing irrigation lines, replanting trees and vegetation, and installing base material on the trail. All work will occur on City property or within City easement areas. The burned vegetation will be chipped and used for erosion control and/or taken to the City of Redding Landfill for disposal.
