KNIGHTS LANDING BOAT LAUNCH IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
The Project would widen the existing one-lane boat ramp to two lanes, install new boarding floats on either side of the boat ramp, repave existing parking areas, provide facilities for a park host, improve restroom facilities, construct new signage, and install an automated pay station, among other items. The site of the boat launch facility is owned by CDFW and operated and maintained by Yolo County.
**UPDATE** March 2019
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program, in coordination with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the California Wildlife Conservation Board, and Yolo County, is posting a 30-day public-notice for the Knights Landing Boat Launch Facility Construction project Environmental Assessment. The USFWS has granted partial funds for the renovation of the existing Boat Launch Facility, and is preparing to release funds for construction. The project is also undergoing permitting by the US Army Corps of Engineers under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and Sections 10 and 408 of the Rivers and Harbors Act.
All comments on the Environmental Assessment must be received by April 18, 2019. The Environmental Assessment is available for public review on the USFWS website: https://www.fws.gov/cno/conservation/wsfr.cfm
On April 24, 2018, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors adopted the CEQA Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) (SCH #2017092057), with Errata, for the Knights Landing Boat Launch Improvement Project. As described in the IS/MND, the project incorporates design features intended to avoid, minimize, or reduce the potential for environmental impacts. All potential impacts would be reduced to less-than-significant levels with implementation of the mitigation measures identified in the IS/MND and the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program.
The IS/MND was released on September 21, 2017 for a 30-day public comment period. Staff received five comment letters on the document. Although CEQA does not require a lead agency to prepare formal responses to comments on a proposed IS/MND, staff has prepared responses to each letter. A few of the comments received merited minor revisions to the IS/MND document. All changes made to the IS/MND are described in the text of the Response to Comments document and listed on the Errata Sheet prefixed to the IS/MND. The five comment letters and responses to each letter are included in the Response to Comments document. The IS/MND contains three components (Errata Sheet, Response to Comments Document, and the September 2017 IS/MND) that taken together comprise the complete IS/MND.
