SUNNY BRAESIDE – Final approval of Baywood Golf and Country Club’s logging plans has been further delayed. Approval of THP 1-17-044HUM had been expected within 15 days of the June 28 Second Review, but that was later put off until Friday, Aug. 4.
Today, Aug. 4, the California Dept. of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire) posted a request from Baywood’s forester, Cameron Holmgren, requesting a further extension to Friday, Aug. 11 “to allow the Director and Staff more time to address all the THP issues.”
As with last week's extension, Dominik Schwab, a forester and resource manager with CalFire in Santa Rosa, said there was no specific problem holding up approval. "We're still evaluating public comment and the plan record as a whole," Schwab said. "We're just trying to be careful."
