The Marin RCD created an easier and faster way for landowners and ranchers to apply for permits for conservation projects. The Marin Coastal Watersheds Permit Coordination Program (PCP) is designed to help ranchers plan, permit, fund, and implement practices that will minimize impacts to wildlife and water quality.
Under the program, the RCD applies and pays for permits to assist landowners wanting to construct conservation projects. The projects range from stabilizing streambanks to installation of livestock crossings. The PCP has approved 17 different types of conservation projects to help ranchers plan, permit, fund and implement projects.
The Board of Directors considers public verbal and/or written comments during their monthly meetings (second Wednesday). Your attendance and participation are welcome. All comments received during the 30 day public comment period will be addressed at the meeting. Meetings begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Marin County Farm Bureau Conference Room, 520 Mesa Road. Comments can be written on our public comment page.
