Olympus Oaks

Roseville, California

The Olympus Oaks development project located in Roseville was designed to maintain 125 acres of onsite open space along the riparian corridors of False, Miner’s, and Secret Ravines. As a condition of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) permit, the open space required a management plan, deed restriction, and establishment of a long-term funding mechanism to ensure management of the area. Foothill Associates developed the Open Space Management Plan to describe the onsite open space areas and provide management strategies for the riparian and oak woodland habitats in the preserve. The plans provide strategies for the protection of sensitive biological resources from the adverse effects of surrounding land uses, invasive species, and recreational uses. Foothill Associates outlined the operation and maintenance costs for each preserve and worked with the client to create funding mechanisms for the perpetual management of each parcel. Foothill Associates’ planners and managers worked closely with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Corps, and the City of Roseville to establish management plan language that effectively identified responsible parties, management activities, and potential remedial actions.
