Fitch Mountain Park and Open Space Preserve Management Plan

Fitch Mountain Walk In The Clouds

Management Plan Overview

One of the first steps in moving an open space property from private ownership to a public amenity is completing a management plan for the property. The management plan:
• Evaluates the property from an ecological and recreational perspective
• Identifies areas of focus for restoring and enhancing important natural resources, as well as managing fire risks
• Develops a plan for creating and maintain recreational opportunities
• Guides future work and financial commitments

The City contracted with Prunuske Chatham Inc. (PCI) of Sebastopol to develop the management plan. Over the course of several months, the City, PCI, stakeholders, and the community worked together to identify important natural resources, talk about public access, and develop the overall improvement plan.
