Highlights and Sticky Notes:Research indicates that California has lost more than 90 percent of its wetlands due to impacts from population growth and agricultural development.

The 313-acre project would bring just over 600 new housing units to Chico, ranging in size from apartments to 3,000-square-foot homes. Other elements include 3.5 acres of parks and 36.6 acres for commercial businesses.Tags: no_tagby: ndcarter
