Forest Advisory Committee (FAC) - 2017

Butte County’s General Plan 2030 addresses Butte County’s commitment to protection, enhancement, utilization and management of natural resources; the importance of agricultural enterprises, and the need for parks and recreation opportunities. The Board of Supervisors established the Forest Advisory Committee (FAC) to facilitate public involvement and assist the County in its quest to meet these guiding principles of the Butte General Plan 2030 as it pertains to use of public lands. The Committee serves to gather information and opinions from interested parties, to present pertinent recommendations to the Butte County Board of Supervisors through the Coordinating Committee, and to serve as a resource in Coordination efforts. The FAC is comprised of 5 public members and alternates representing the following areas of expertise/interest:

  • Agriculture/Timber Management
  • Recreation-Motorized
  • Recreation-Non-motorized
  • Environmental and Watershed Management
  • Economic/Tourism.
