Final Mission Bay Park Natural Resource Management Plan

Type: report

Article abstract: The Natural Resource Management Plan recognizes the presence of natural resources in Mission Bay Park and provides guidelines and programs for the protection, enhancement, and management of these resources. The intent is that no net reduction of wildlife habitat will be allowed and that the over all quality of habitat will be improved. The Plan provides a framework to allow the continued improvement and maintenance of Mission Bay Park and still ensure viable productivity and protection of the Park's natural resources. Use of the Plan can help bridge what can sometimes be a gap between the requirement of human activities and the need to protect and manage natural resources. The Mission Bay Park Natural Resource Management Plan helps to clarify expectations for the protection of natural resources in the Park and to facilitate the granting of federal, state, and local permits for projects in the Park.
