All around the world, in cities as diverse as Sydney, Baltimore, Reno, Pittsburg and Bend, savvy waterfront communities have discovered the power of treating their waterfronts as treasured  community resources. Strengthening the riverscape’s distinctive identity, connecting it to the whole community, and celebrating its many uses does more than bring people back to the water, it brings life back to a city — and transforms a region’s image. 

How can we do that in Oroville?

The Supplemental Benefits Fund Steering Committee (SBF) has begun to take steps in addressing this question by providing funding for a plan to ensure that the Feather River, from the Diversion Dam to just below the Afterbay Outlet, remains a treasure to the Oroville Region. The SBF along with Environmental Science Associates (ESA) and the National Park Service (NPS) are working together to provide a plan to help guide future investments in the area.

The Feather River Consolidated Master Plan will identify ways to create a vibrant and inviting urban riverscape that blends seamlessly into the existing, burgeoning Historic Downtown District, and to do so by strategically investing in this vision by carefully using funds provided by the FERC Settlement Agreement which provided the establishment of the Supplemental Benefits Fund (SBF) to oversee what could amount to $61,270,000 and more over a fifty-year period.

 Mission Statement of the Supplemental Benefits Fund

 “Investing in recreational and related projects with a nexus (proximity) of the Feather River to improve the quality of life and stimulate economic development in the Oroville Region”
