Delta Conservancy Board Approves New Project and 2024 Implementation Plan
January 24, 2024
WEST SACRAMENTO – The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy Board on Wednesday convened for its first meeting of 2024, approving a new project as well as the Conservancy’s Implementation Plan for 2024.
The Board voted unanimously to approve up to $715,180 in grant funding to Suisun City for the Suisun City Fishing Dock Planning Project.
The funding will help plan the construction of a public fishing dock in the Suisun Slough, located within Suisun City. The dock will be Americans with Disabilities Act accessible and feature benches, shade, fishing pole holders, and an educational kiosk.
“This is a huge first step in giving Suisun City residents a much-needed amenity downtown. The fishing dock project will provide an updated, inclusive recreation space that will be a tourist attraction regionally and will highlight the Delta’s beautiful and unique ecosystem,” said Suisun City Mayor Alma Hernandez. “Thank you to the State of California and the Delta Conservancy for turning this need into a reality.”
The Board also approved the Conservancy’s 2024 Implementation Plan, which is a companion document to the Conservancy’s 2022-2027 Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan provides a high-level road map and sets objectives and performance measures to achieve them. The annual Implementation Plan provides the more detailed tasks the Conservancy will undertake in the coming year.
Lastly, the Board received an overview of the Conservancy’s 2023 Annual Report highlighting the achievements and milestones from the past year. View the 2023 Annual Report here: https://bit.ly/3HlieY1
