Coarsegold Resource Conservation District
List of former directors and the years in which they served.
Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs) are local units of government organized by local residents under State law. Districts operate on the premise that local people know more about local problems than anyone else.
The Coarsegold Resource Conservation District (originally called The Coarsegold Soil Conservation District) is considered a legal subdivision of the State of California. Under state law, the CRCD is responsible for soil and water conservation work within its boundaries. The district governing board is appointed, and it is their job to plan and carry out long-range programs based on the conservation work needed in their area. At the request of the CRCD board, The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) assigns a district conservationist and a staff to provide technical assistance to the district and its cooperating land users.
In 1995 the board was expanded to seven directors instead of the
original five directors. On May 22, 2012 the CRCD board was reduced to five
directors by action of the Madera County Board of Supervisors.
