South Sacramento Habitat Conservation Plan

Project Summary

The South Sacramento Habitat Conservation Plan (SSHCP) is a regional approach to addressing issues related to urban development, habitat conservation and agricultural protection. The SSHCP will consolidate environmental efforts to protect and enhance wetlands (primarily vernal pools) and upland habitats to provide ecologically viable conservation areas. It will also minimize regulatory hurdles and streamline the premitting process for development projects.

The County of Sacramento and our partners (City of Rancho Cordova, City of Galt, Sacramento County Water Agency, Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District, and the Capital Southeast Connector JPA) are currently engaged in a collaborative effort with state and federal regulatory agencies to complete the South Sacramento Habitat Conservation Plan.
