NOE - Notice of Exemption
Construct an approximately 100' stairway from bus parking area to trailhead of Independence Trail in South Yuba River State Park. Currently, visitors disembarking from buses must walk approximately 220 yards along Highway 49 to trailhead, exposing pedestrians to potential traffic hazards. Clear vegetation from foot of stairway down to trailhead and install several benches next to existing restroom. Project protects public safety, improves accessibility, and supports continued use.
Project consists of construction and location of limited numbers of new, small facilities; and minor public alterations in the condition of vegetation, which will not involve removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees.
