Regionally Significant Environmental Resources

Recent Environmental Consultations Resources identified Results of discussion Upcoming Environmental Consultations on the 2040 plan

Environmental Consultations
Discussions with state & local agencies Alternative to allowing environmental impacts that require costly mitigation Consideration early on of effects of projects, plan, & related development on resources that may require mitigation Opportunity for improving transportation & guiding development

Categories of
Regionally Significant Environmental Resources

State-Conserved Area: State parks, wildlife areas, & preserves Scenic River (national & state designation) Regionally Significant Streams (least impaired streams) Endangered, Threatened, & Rare Species Wetlands

Review of Transportation Projects

County agencies advocated for projects that manage stormwater effectively avoid adverse impacts to streams maintain or restore stream corridors maintain tree cover maintain day-lighted streams use bridge spans that allow for wildlife movement and flooding below

Major concerns are that..

forested tracts remain stream corridors be conserved roadway runoff be diverted from direct entry into streams streams not yet degraded be protected the growth of impervious surface be constrained

Upcoming Early in 2012 Joint state & local sessions Updated information for comparison & discussion

One Local Agencys Comment

Protection is in the interest of the

pocketbook. The cost of replacing or restoring natural resources should make it a no-brainer to see the need to protect them.
