On February 25, 2020, a conservation easement was recorded to protect the Beneficial Public Values of 100 acres to be retained by PG&E at the Kings River planning unit. The conservation easement is held by Sequoia River Lands Trust.

Final Land Conservation and Conveyance Plan - Lands to be retained by PG&E at Kings River

 

At its September 19, 2018 meeting, the board adopted a Final Land Conservation and Conveyance Plan (LCCP) for lands to be retained by PG&E at the Kings River planning unit located in Fresno County, California.

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

The draft LCCP was made available for public review and comment from May 25, 2018 - June 25, 2018.

Recommendations

 

At its September 16, 2010 meeting, the Stewardship Council Board of Directors recommended the United States Forest Service as the prospective fee title donee for the Kings River planning unit, located in Fresno County.

However, after completing its due diligence, the USFS withdrew interest in fee title ownership in 2017. The property will instead be retained by PG&E.

At its January 24, 2018 meeting, the board recommended Sequoia Riverlands Trust as the prospective conservation easement holder on the entire 100 acres Kings River planning unit to be retained by PG&E.

 

Public Information Meeting

 

The primary purpose of this meeting was to solicit public input on the development of the Land Conservation and Conveyance Plans (LCCP) to preserve and enhance the beneficial public values.
