Document Description
The proposed Project includes implementation of the Toto Ranch/Tunitas Creek Open Space Preserve Rangeland Management Plan (RMP) and supporting infrastructure improvements and management practices throughout the 987-acre Toto Ranch (Project area). Proposed activities include practices to guide grazing, fence and gate installation and/or repairs, road repairs and maintenance, water infrastructure improvements, pond management, avoidance and minimization measures, and monitoring and adaptive management. The RMP was prepared by the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (Midpen) in July of 2018. As stated in the RMP, Midpen's goal is to "manage District land with livestock grazing that is compatible with public access, to maintain and enhance the diversity of native plant and an.imal communities, manage vegetation fuel for fire protection, sustain the local agricultural economy, and preserve and foster appreciation for the region's rural agricultural heritage".
