SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The GP/ RMP is being prepared for the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area through a cooperative agreement between Reclamation and State Parks. This planning activity encompasses approximately 20,000 acres of publicly accessible water and land owned by Reclamation and managed by State Parks’ Gold Fields District. The GP/RMP will be the primary management document for the park unit, providing a VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:34 Feb 04, 2008 Jkt 214001 defined purpose, vision, long-term goals, and management guidelines. It will be used by State Parks as a framework for guiding decision-making related to future development potential, on-going management, and public use of the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. The GP/RMP attempts to enhance and expand the recreation opportunities while also providing more active protection and management of natural and cultural resources. The GP/RMP is intended to be implemented over an extended period as determined by both user demand and need. To do so, the GP/RMP provides both park wide goals and guidelines relating to natural, cultural and visual resources, water quality, circulation, visitor services, interpretation and operations as well as direction for specific zones of the park. The GP/RMP designates 34 geographic management zones, with 12 on Lake Natoma and 22 on Folsom Lake. Each zone has a specific management emphasis and is designated with one of five land use designations: RecreationHigh, Recreation-Medium, Conservation, Preservation, or Administration. The preferred alternative includes 12 recreation zones, 17 conservation zones, 3 preservation zones, and 2 administration zones. Based on this area, the management emphasis is for recreation on 91% of the aquatic area and 20% of the land area, and conservation on 74% of the land area and 9% of the aquatic area; however, it will ultimately be the responsibility of State Parks and the Parks and Recreation Commission and Reclamation to select a preferred plan for adoption, once the environmental review processes have been completed. The EIS/EIR is a program-level analysis of the potential environmental impacts associated with adoption of the GP/RMP. The GP/RMP is intended to be predominantly self-mitigating through implementation of GP/RMP policies and management strategies, and the EIS/EIR will also include measures intended to reduce the adverse effects of the GP/ RMP. Copies of the Draft EIS/EIR are available for public review at the following locations: • California State Parks, Folsom Lake SRA Office, 7806 Folsom Auburn Road, Folsom, CA 95630. • Sacramento Central Library, 828 I Street, Sacramento, CA 95542. • Folsom Public Library, Georgia Murray Building, 411 Stafford Street, Folsom, CA 95630. • El Dorado County Main Library, 345 Fair Lane, Placerville, CA 95667.
