Golden Gate Bridge Corte Madera 4-Acre Tidal Marsh Restoration Project
Wednesday, May 15, 2019
Notice is hereby given that the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District is releasing for review and comment a Draft Initial Study and Proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Corte Madera Four-Acre Tidal Marsh Restoration Project
Please note the information below is taken from the Golden Gate District website project page.
The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District (District) is proposing to construct the Corte Madera 4-Acre Tidal Marsh Restoration Project (Project) within the District’s 72-acre property located in Corte Madera, CA.
The primary goal of the Project is to restore four (4) acres to tidal marsh habitat, thereby fulfilling the District’s obligations to establish two (2) acres of tidal marsh suitable for California Ridgway’s rail, in accordance with the 1988 Corps permit (#17486N), and two (2) acres of tidal marsh habitat associated with a 1996 modification to District ferry operations at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal.
The proposed restoration efforts will restore tidal connectivity to the Project site and provide tidal marsh habitat in support of Federal-listed species such as the California Ridgway’s rail and salt marsh harvest mouse.
The District has prepared a Draft Initial Study and proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) in conformance with the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the CEQA Guidelines (California Code of Regulations 15000 et. seq.), and the regulations and policies of the District to evaluate and address the potential environmental impacts, which might reasonably be anticipated to result from implementation of the Project.
The public is invited to review and comment on the Draft IS/MND and supporting documents listed below. On May 15, 2019, between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., the District will host an open house meeting at the Town of Corte Madera Council Chambers, 300 Tamalpais Drive, Corte Madera, CA 94925, to answer questions about the Project.
The Draft IS/MND is being circulated for a 30-day review period from April 26, 2019, to May 26, 2019. Comments should be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. on May 26, 2019, in writing or via email as follows:
Amorette Ko, Secretary of the District
Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District
