August 13, 2015 - Public Workshop held to review the DRAFT Oroville Urban Greening Plan - Download Agenda and Worskhop Boards HERE
In collaboration with the City of Oroville (City) and the Feather River Recreation and Park District (FRRPD), and in coordination with other local agencies, Butte County (County) will complete a Master Greening Plan to serve as the master document guiding and coordinating greening projects in the Oroville urban area. The Plan will cross City, County and FRRPD jurisdictional boundaries, and will be consistent with the state’s strategic growth goals of increasing forest canopy, reducing stormwater runoff, improving air and water quality, conserving energy, providing open space, and achieving long-term community sustainability.
The Urban Greening Plan will be consistent with the City and County General Plans and the FRRPD Master Plan. The effort will draw upon interagency collaboration, community members and consultant expertise to ensure that the Urban Greening Plan is coordinated with public health needs, community preferences, and the provision of local services.
Funding provided by Proposition 84 to Improve the Sustainability and Livability of California’s Communities, through the Strategic Growth Council’s Urban Greening for Sustainable Communities grant program.
