Concord Community Reuse Project

Concord Community Reuse Project

The Concord Reuse Project is a proposed mixed-use development of residential, industrial, and community uses on approximately half of the 5028-acre former Inland Area of the Concord Naval Weapons Station, with habitat enhancement and management for special-status species on the remainder of the site.

H. T. Harvey & Associates was engaged by the City of Concord to revise the biological resources section of a revised draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). Using existing information supplemented with field surveys, we revised the biological resources chapter and responded to public comments, and the final EIR was certified. Our team also completed a detailed wetland delineation of the project site. We are currently assisting the City in designing the restoration of several miles of Mt. Diablo Creek, the centerpiece of the project site. The conceptual design is being developed in concert with a hydrologic design for the creek, to improve the creek’s flood capacity and enhance its natural processes. In addition, our ecologists helped to prepare permitting and compliance documents for the City, including the Clean Water Act Section 404 permit application for submittal to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. We prepared a Biological Assessment to facilitate Federal Endangered Species Act consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and we are assisting the City in coordinating with the Service and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife regarding endangered species issues.
