Placer Legacy Quarterly Report
Adopted in June 2000, Placer Legacy is a program of the County of Placer to protect and conserve open space and agricultural lands. The program has been developed to implement the goals, policies and programs of the 1994 Placer County General Plan by meeting a number of objectives:
- Maintain a viable agricultural segment of the economy;
- Conserve natural features necessary for access to a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities;
- Retain important scenic and historic areas;
- Preserve the diversity of plant and animal communities;
- Protect endangered and other special status plant and animal species; and,
- Separate urban areas into distinct communities, and ensure public safety.
Placer Legacy comprises four primary areas of program work including program startup, natural resource activities, program implementation (acquisition, monitoring, development and maintenance) and public outreach.
