including, but not limited to, the delta's shorelines in Contra
Costa, Solano, San Joaquin, Sacramento, and Yolo Counties. This plan
shall link the San Francisco Bay Trail system to the planned
Sacramento River trails in Yolo and Sacramento Counties. This plan
shall include a specific route of a bicycling and hiking trail, the
relationship of the route to existing and proposed park and
recreational facilities and land and water trail systems, and links
to existing and proposed public transportation and transit. The
transportation and transit links may include, but are not limited to,

executed pursuant to this chapter shall be called the Great
California Delta Trail. The continuous regional recreational corridor
shall include, but not be limited to, bikeway systems, and hiking
and bicycling trails.
   (b) The Great California Delta Trail plan shall do all of the
following:
   (1) Provide that designated environmentally sensitive areas,
including wildlife habitats and wetlands, shall not be adversely
affected by the trail.
   (2) Provide for appropriate buffer zones along those portions of
the bikeway system adjacent to designated environmentally sensitive
areas and areas with private uses, when appropriate.
   (3) Provide that the land and funds used for any purposes under
this chapter are not considered mitigation for wetlands losses.
   (4) Provide alternative routes to avoid impingement on
environmentally sensitive areas, traditional hunting and fishing
areas, and areas with private uses, when appropriate.
   (5) Provide that no motorized vehicles, except to the extent
necessary for emergency services, including, but not limited to,
medical and structural emergencies, and for handicap access, be
allowed on the trail.
   (c) The commission may develop and adopt the plan and the
implementation program if it receives sufficient funds, from sources
other than the General Fund, to finance the full costs of developing
and adopting the plan. The commission shall submit the plan and the
implementation program to the Legislature and each of the counties
within the commission's service area not later than two years after
the commission determines that sufficient funds will be available to
complete the plan and implementation program.
   (d) The commission shall administer the funds used in the planning
of the trail.



5855.  (a) The commission shall establish a technical advisory
committee that shall review the trail's planning, implementation, and
funding proposals. The committee shall include members and staff of
appropriate regional government associations, local jurisdictions,
and districts. Participation in the committee is voluntary and its
members are not eligible for reimbursement from the state for costs
incurred to participate. The committee may make recommendations, to
the commission, on the trail's planning, implementation, and funding.
The executive director of the commission shall convene the meetings
of the committee.
   (b) A cooperative working relationship shall be established with
state and federal agencies, and all other cities, counties,
districts, including school districts, and regional government
associations that are affected by the proposed trail.
   (c) The commission shall establish a stakeholder advisory
committee representing groups concerned with environmental and
ecological protection of the delta, groups representing agricultural,
private, and other business uses of the delta's land and water, and
groups representing bicycling, walking, boating, horseback riding,
and other relevant recreational activities. The stakeholder advisory
committee shall advise the commission on the trail's impacts on and
uses for committee member constituencies. Participation in the
committee is voluntary and its members are not eligible for
reimbursement from the state for costs incurred to participate. The
committee may make recommendations, to the commission, on the trail's
planning, implementation, and funding. The executive director of the
commission shall convene the meetings of the stakeholder advisory
committee.
   (d) The meetings of the committees established in subdivisions (a)
and (c) shall be subject to the provisions of the Bagley-Keene Open
Meeting Act (Article 9 (commencing with Section 11120) of Chapter 1
of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code).
