Military Operations Area Overlay
The purpose of a Military Operation Area Overlay (MOA) is to establish procedures for the review and permitting of new development within designated Military Operation Areas (MOA) and Military Training Routes (MTR) which cross Tehama County and to ensure early notification and a timely exchange of project related information.
To ensure early notification to the military of discretionary development projects within Military Operation Areas, California Government Code requires the exchange of project related information pertinent to military operations between local jurisdictions and the military.
In 2013, the Tehama County Board of Supervisors adopted a Military Operations Area Overlay, as shown above in Figure 1. For your convenience, Tehama’s Military Operation Area Ordinance and Compatibility GIS Mapping website links are provided below:
