Purpose: This Resource Management Plan (RMP) has been prepared as a guidance document to manage and preserve the biological and cultural resources within the Park, and to provide Area-Specific Management Directives (ASMDs) pursuant to the requirements of the Draft North County Plan and the Draft North County Framework Resource Management Plan (Draft Framework RMP) (County 2009b). Specifically, this RMP will: a) guide the management of vegetation communities/habitats, plant and animal species, cultural resources, and programs described herein to protect and, where appropriate, enhance biological and cultural values; b) serve as a guide for appropriate public uses of the property; c) provide a descriptive inventory of the vegetation communities/habitats, plant and animal species, and the archaeological and/or historical resources that occur on this property; d) establish the baseline conditions from which adaptive management will be determined and success will be measured; and e) provide an overview of the operation and maintenance requirements to implement management goals. It is recognized that County-owned land is only a small portion of the Draft North County Plan preserve system. The County does ensure management of other lands that are dedicated as an open space easement for discretionary project mitigation through requiring land developers to prepare Resource Management Plans. The County will spearhead a larger coordinated effort to ensure that other conserved lands in the area that make up the preserve are also being monitored and managed consistent with this RMP, and the overall goals of the Draft North County Plan once it is finalized.
