Bear Valley Common Area Inventory

Forester Ross Richards contracted with BVRI to do an assessment of the common areas in the New Subdivision. He noted basal area coverage, fuel loading, and relative severity of fire danger. He assigned a priority rating of High, Moderate, Low, or None to each common area, and made a recommendation for treatment on each.
BVRI, in cooperation with Richards and Supervisor Woodrow, is seeking grant funds for managing the common areas.

The following is the report submitted by Richards to the BVRI Board.
BVRI Common Area Inventory – Fall 2014

The report is very detailed.

Environmental Impact Report

The Board of Supervisors voted to approve the amended Environmental Impact Report. And the appeal of the Forest Service’s Environmental Assessment was withdrawn. The enabling documents for the Bear Valley Village Partners to proceed with their development plans are now in place.

Alpine County is the lead agency responsible for preparation of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The EIR discusses the environmental effects of approving a General Plan Amendment and a zoning change to allow development of a new pedestrian village and related infrastructure in the town of Bear Valley, California. Use links below to read full documents.

EIR Volume 1, details all project-related environmental concerns and their significance, while EIR Volume 2 contains all public comments and recommendations for mitigation.
