State agency blasted for lack of response to burgeoning elk population 

A state biologist’s report on how California plans to manage local elk herds was met with frustration by the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors, who said more should have been done already to address surging elk populations.

Dave Lancaster, a wildlife biologist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, told county supervisors that development of a statewide elk management plan is underway and that a draft for public comment should be available soon after the dawn of 2015.

“Here’s what we have in mind: having a well-distributed, robust elk population in areas where conflicts are minimal that provides for public use opportunities,” Lancaster said.

State coast commission pays a visit

Officials to tour local sites for projects needing approval 

For most of the state, the California Coastal Commission acts as a mediator for 38 million Californians elbowing for their fair share of coastal access. But in far northern California, where beach access is abundant, many often paint the regulatory agency as an overzealous, bureaucratic barrier to much-needed economic development.

To better grasp how Del Norte differs from far-flung, heavily-populated coastlines to the south, the commission will be holding its monthly multi-day meeting in Smith River this week and taking a tour of project sites in Del Norte County in need of the regulatory agency’s approval.
