Plumas-Eureka on state park closure list

Plumas County’s only state park, Plumas-Eureka State Park (PESP), is on the list of 70 parks to be closed for the next two fiscal years, California State Parks announced today.

The PESP closure is unlikely to have much of an effect this summer because a scheduled hazardous materials cleanup meant most facilities would be closed anyway, said Matt Green, acting district superintendent for the park agency’s Sierra District.

The state announced in late January that the park would be partially closed this summer for the cleanup, but announced last month that it would be closed all summer because late and heavy snows delayed the start of the Environmental Protection Agency’s planned cleanup.

The statewide closures, which will affect a quarter of the state’s parks, are necessary, said the agency, to achieve an $11 million reduction in 2011 –12 and $22 million in 2012 – 13.

The cuts are a result of AB95, passed by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown in March.
