Mather Field Specific Plan Environmental Impact Statement Image

The County of Sacramento is proposing a mixed-use Specific Plan for the former 5,700-acre Mather Field military base, located in the heart of Sacramento's Highway 50 Corridor.

In addition to residential, commercial, recreational, and education-related uses, the plan includes a large vernal pool preserve, harboring a unique community of plant and animals protected under federal and state endangered species acts. With such unique biological resources on site, the County submitted a draft Section 404 application to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (USACE) Regulatory Branch. As an approved consulting firm by the USACE, ESA was selected to conduct public scoping and prepare the environmental impact statement (EIS). Our cultural resources team is working with the County to prepare Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act compliance documents. Besides the vernal pool preserve, other areas addressed in the EIS include other biological resources, traffic, air quality, land use, cultural resources and cumulative effects of the development plan.

ESA effectively partnered with the County and federal agencies to evaluate the environmental impacts of the proposed development plan and vernal pool preserve.
