In order to maintain the County’s unique character, high quality of life, diverse ecosystems, and rare species, the Placer County Board of Supervisors concluded a vision was needed to plan for and accommodate the area’s projected growth while at the same time protecting the County’s many resources. This vision has evolved into the proposed Placer County Conservation Plan (PCCP), a proactive, regional planning tool designed to avoid potential conflicts between the County’s growing human population and unique ecological assets.
The proposed PCCP is a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) under the
Federal Endangered Species Act
and a Natural Community Conservation Plan (NCCP) under the
California Natural Community Conservation Planning Act
. As proposed, the PCCP would include the County Aquatic Resources Program (CARP) to issue permits related to the Federal Clean Water Act and the California Fish and Game Code.
Sources for the development of the Placer County Consevation Plan (PCCP) conservation stategy include muliple reports and background studies. The principal sources for data include:
