AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF WINTERS ADDING CHAPTER 18.12 OF THE CITY OF WINTERS MUNICIPAL CODE PROVIDING FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF THE YOLO HABITAT CONSERVATION PLAN / NATURAL COMMUNITIES CONSERVATION PLAN,

INCLUDING RELATED PROCEDURES AND FEES

Notice is hereby given that on June 5, 2018, the City Council of the City of Winters will consider the adoption of Ordinance No. 2018-02 making certain amendments and additions to the Winters Municipal Code related to implementation of the Yolo Habitat Conservation Plan / Natural Community Conservation Plan (“Yolo HCP/NCCP”).  The following is a summary of the proposed Ordinance:

 

  • The Ordinance adds a chapter to the Winters Municipal Code implementing the Yolo HCP/NCCP — a comprehensive, multi-species, county-wide plan designed to conserve twelve sensitive species; protect, enhance, and restore the natural communities and agricultural land in Yolo County on which those species depend; and ensure an efficient approach to mitigation for project proponents;

 

  • The Ordinance replaces the current system, where projects undergo permitting and mitigation on a separate and individual basis, with a new streamlined process that coordinates permit requirements with a countywide conservation strategy;     

 

  • The Ordinance requires applicants for certain projects within the Yolo HCP/NCCP area to comply with conditions to avoid, minimize, and mitigate the take of covered species;     

 

  • The Ordinance authorizes the City, on behalf of the Yolo Habitat Conservancy, to collect a mitigation fee from project applicants as a condition of approval for certain activities and also authorizes the City to collect certain administrative fees.

 

Note:  The above is a simply a summary of the Ordinance.  To obtain a full understanding of the Ordinance it should be read in its entirety.  A certified copy of the full text of the Ordinance is posted in the City Clerk’s office at 318 1st Street, Winters, California, 95694, or on the City’s website at http://cityofwinters.org.
