Sierra Nevada Conservancy plans second meeting

Staff reportsThe Sierra Nevada Conservancy will hold its second board meeting on Thursday, where the topics of a headquarters and an executive director will once again be discussed by the 13-member board.While no decisions are expected on the executive director or the location of the offices are expected at the meeting, the organization of the state’s newest conservancy is in full swing. The first of six community forums to gauge the public’s assessment of regional needs will be held in Bishop, Calif. this week. Five more, including one in the Nevada County area, will follow this summer. The forums will also educate Sierra residents on the role of the conservancy.The conservancy’s start-up funding stands at $3.36 million in the proposed budget item that was recently agreed upon by the state Senate and Assembly. That level of funding will have to be approved by the governor to become available to the conservancy.The conservancy board will meet at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 30, on the first floor of the resources building auditorium at 1416 Ninth St. in Sacramento. The meetings are open to the public.
