The impact of environmental restrictions, set-asides and land and water management policies


tax base map

Private Land That Has Been Converted
to Public Land or Tribal Trust and
Taken off the County's Tax Roles since 1999

Over the past twenty years, federal and State regulations and actions have significantly impacted the people of Siskiyou. Corresponding economic conditions in Siskiyou County have steadily deteriorated since the first large impact from the Pacific Northwest Forest Plan (northern spotted owl.) Recently, additional regulations for threatened coho salmon have begun to deteriorate the remaining agricultural sector in the county. 

Economic stressors have exacerbated social problems in Siskiyou County:

Recent environmental restrictions, set-asides and land and water management policies during the past twenty years have heavily  impacted the custom and culture of Siskiyou County as documented through its history dating back to the California Gold Rush

Environmental Justice


4.1.5 Environmental Justice (Executive Order 12898)

Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority and Low-Income Populations, as amended, directs federal agencies to develop an Environmental Justice Strategy that identifies and addresses disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects of their programs, policies, and activities on minority populations and low-income populations. According to the Council on Environmental Quality’s guidance, agencies should consider the composition of the affected area to determine whether minority populations, low-income populations, or Indian Tribes are present in the area affected by the Proposed Action, and if so, where there may be disproportionately high and adverse environmental effects.
