Conservancy Begins Central Delta Corridor Partnership Regional Planning Process
The Delta Conservancy is coordinating a 9 month public process that will bring together the land owners, agencies, and interested stakeholders to collaboratively develop an initial coordinated corridor strategy for management and restoration of publicly funded lands along the Central Delta corridor (see map below). The planning effort will consist of a public workshop to introduce the partnership and planning process, and a 1.5-day charrette workshop, and a series of half day workshops, to develop and discuss strategies, and a final public workshop to present the draft planning document and solicit input.
