San Joaquin Valley Greenprint
The San Joaquin Valley Greenprint will compile information describing the lands, waters and living resources of the San Joaquin Valley region and the trends affecting them, and that document their public benefits. It will identify and document resource management challenges and opportunities. It will assemble the perspectives of the residents of the region into a shared vision, and identify a series of strategies for the conservation and management of the region’s resources. These strategies will be developed with extensive public input, will be based on sound science and economics and, if the effort is successful, will enjoy broad public support throughout the region. The resulting “greenprint” can then reinforce local efforts and serve as a guide to local, state, federal and private sector decision-makers as they make choices about the future of the Valley’s resources. Because of its Valleywide focus, it may be able to achieve results for the Valley economy and quality of life not otherwise achievable by individual jurisdictions and organizations. However, the Greenprint will not establish public policy or override local land use decision making, and will respect private property rights.
San Joaquin Valley Greenprint Demonstration Projects
FCOG is seeking proposals from interested agencies and organizations to prepare demonstration projects that use data assembled by the SJV Greenprint in the San Joaquin Valley Data Basin Gateway or similar source to help local, regional, State and Federal agencies and organizations address the Valley’s resource management issues, opportunities, and/or conflicts. more..
