The Conservancy’s Board of Directors recently amended the organization’s “Land Dedication Checklist” to account for changes in the Sacramento International Airport’s policies regarding land use in proximity to the airport. The Land Dedication Checklist was first developed to make clear the Conservancy’s terms for accepting land to satisfy that portion of the NBHCP fee that accounts for land acquisition. Its preparation and adoption by the Conservancy’s Board of Directors was a result of numerous questions about the process posed by those seeking mitigation using the land dedication process.
The Checklist was amended to note that land proposed for dedication to the Conservancy in lieu of payment of the Land Acquisition Fund portion of the NBHCP fee must not conflict with restrictions associated with Sacramento International Airport. These new restrictions were made a part of the Comprehensive Land Use Compatibility Plan for Sacramento International Airport. The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) facilitated the process which made the changes.
A copy of the Conservancy’s Land dedication Checklist can be found on the “Project Mitigation” section of the Conservancy’s website.
