The Sierra Nevada Conservancy would provide funding for the County of Nevada to conduct planning activities to identify 800 acres of priority treatments within a 6,000 acre strategic planning area to reduce wildfire risk for over 44,000 residents in local communities and protect critical infrastructure and natural resources, including two State Parks, the South Yuba River watershed, and Tahoe National Forest and BLM public lands. The County of Nevada will 1) Engage partners in planning, including individual landowners, communities, and experts on the San Juan Ridge; 2) identify approximately 800 acres of priority treatment areas within the 6,000-acre strategic planning area, obtain permissions from private landowners to initiate treatment design and agree to right of access, land tenure, and maintenance. Treatment design will include surveying and mapping of treatment areas, development of treatment prescriptions by a Registered Professional Forester (RPF) and landowner approval of treatment prescriptions; and 3) for the 800-acre priority area, reconnaissance-level biological surveys, a cultural resource records search and cultural resource site surveys, and pre-treatment biological surveys will be conducted. These data will be used to prepare the required State environmental review and permitting elements, which may be a Project Specific Analysis (PSA)- Addendum to the California Vegetation Treatment Program (CalVTP) Programmatic Environmental Impact Report, Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program (MMRP), required findings, etc. under CalVTP. In addition, a visual impact survey and environmental justice analysis will be conducted.
