Project Description and Location
CDFW, as Lead Agency, approved the Final Land Management Plan (LMP) for the San Felipe Valley Wildlife Area (SFVWA) in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and State CEQA Guidelines.
The SFVWA is located in northeastern San Diego County at the juncture of State Highway 78 and County Highway S-2 (San Felipe Road). It includes approximately 14,175 acres of largely undisturbed land acquired through a series of transactions by the California Wildlife Conservation Board and CDFW. The WA is managed by CDFW for its natural resources and for the public's use and enjoyment of those resources. The primary purpose of the LMP is to establish goals and guidelines for the operation, maintenance, and public use of the SFVWA. CDFW will use the LMP to help guide the specific tasks for managing the habitats, species, cultural resources, facilities, public uses, and various other activities that occur in the WA.
The draft LMP and Initial Study / Negative Declaration was circulated for public review for a period of 30 days starting on November 5, 2007. Public comments and CDFW's responses are located in "Appendix D" within the LMP.
The IS/ND described the project and its potential impacts on the environment, and concluded that the proposed project would not have any significant effects on the environment.
