Jasud Estate Vineyards Timberland Conversion Project EIR Approved
August 1, 2013

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), lead agency, certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) prepared by AES for the Jasud Estate Vineyards Timberland Conversion Project. Consistent with the Forest Practice Act and Rules, CAL FIRE has approved and issued a Timberland Conversion Permit for the Proposed Project. The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requires CAL FIRE to make findings before it can approve the project and issue the necessary permit as required by the CEQA Guidelines. Since the Proposed Project also requires an Erosion Control Plan (ECP) subject to review and approval by Napa County, Napa County is a Responsible Agency under CEQA for the EIR. The Final EIR was prepared in compliance with CAL FIRE CEQA procedures and Napa County’s Local Procedures for Implementing CEQA. The CEQA review was found to be technically sound and adequate by the Napa County Resource Conservation District, and therefore Napa County issued its final approval of the ECP for the Proposed Project.
