Parklands, preserves, greenways, and other open spaces
The City of Chico (“City”) is preparing a programmatic Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the City of Chico Vegetative Fuels Management Plan (“VFMP”) for City-owned park and open space parcels throughout Chico. The VFMP outlines a framework for managing fuel loads and vegetation on these properties to help reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires. The City is requesting comments on the scope and content of the proposed EIR. A description of the VFMP and its location, together with a summary of the probable environmental effects that will be addressed in the EIR, are included in the attached NOP. The NOP also contains information on how to participate and provide comments during the 30-day public review and comment period.
Big Chico Creek, Little Chico Creek, Lindo Channel, Comanche Creek, portion of Butte Creek
Other Location Info
The Plan will cover city-owned parcels throughout the Chico city limits so parcel numbers and coordinates will vary.
