20-588BPU 13.1Kelly Farm Mitigation Bank OpportunitiesBPU-Agenda ItemKELLY FARM MITIGATION BANK OPPORTUNITIES The Laguna Treatment Plant (LTP) and many of the city-owned farms are located within the Santa Rosa Plain which is home to endangered species, including the California tiger salamander (CTS), and rare plants, including Sebastopol meadowfoam, Burke‚Äôs goldfields, and Sonoma sunshine. When the City undertakes a project located at these facilities, the project needs to be designed to avoid impacts to these sensitive species, or the City needs to purchase mitigation credits from a privately held mitigation bank to offset the impacts. Over the last ten years, the cost of CTS credits has increased. The City has planned projects that may require significant mitigation credits, like the flood wall at LTP. The purchase of mitigation credits can add a large cost to the project and extend the time that it takes to obtain regulatory permits, thus delaying the start of the project. The alternative to purchasing mitigation credits from privately-owned mitigation banks is for the City to establish a mitigation bank for City projects on city-owned propertypresented  Action details Video Video
