Final Land Conservation and Conveyance Plan – Humbug Valley

 

At its May 2, 2018 meeting, the board adopted the final Land Conservation and Conveyance Plan for lands to be donated to the Maidu Summit Consortium at the Humbug Valley Tasmam Kojom planning unit in Plumas County.

The Humbug Valley LCCP describes how the proposed transactions and related agreements conform to and fulfill all requirements of the 2003 Settlement Agreement and Stipulation.

The Draft LCCP was made available for a public review and comment period from February 26, 2018 to March 28, 2018.

Recommendations

 

At its November 14, 2013 meeting, the board recommended the Maidu Summit Consortium to receive fee title to approximately 2,325 acres available for donation within four parcels (parcels 699-702) in the Humbug Valley planning unit, subject to compliance with all of the requirements of the Land Conservation Commitment, including the following terms:

  • The Summit agrees to enter into a legally binding agreement to ensure that the conservation easement and other agreements executed pursuant to the Land Conservation Commitment remain enforceable in perpetuity; and

  • Prior to board adoption of the LCCP for Humbug Valley, the Summit successfully completes the pre-LCCP adoption milestones established pursuant to a capacity-building grant to be developed and funded by the Stewardship Council.

 

At this meeting, the board also recommended the Feather River Land Trust and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to jointly hold a conservation easement over the watershed lands in the Humbug Valley planning unit.

 

Stewardship Council Board Donee Recommendations for the Humbug Valley Planning Unit

At its September 15, 2011 meeting, the board recommended funding up to two enhancement projects in the Humbug Valley planning unit to be implemented by the Maidu Summit Consortium prior to the Stewardship Council board making a possible fee title donee recommendation for the lands in that planning unit in an amount not to exceed $200,000 assuming the Stewardship Council, Maidu Summit Consortium, and PG&E reach agreement on the projects and the grant terms.
