NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project will involve installing approximately 150 signs, an estimated 10,000 linear feet of 4-foot high field fencing involving peeler core posts every 100 feet, T-posts every 10 feet, 20 inch walk-throughs every 1000 feet and gates at access points to identify the delineation between open riding and trail riding only area. The bottom of the fence line will be placed approximately 12" above the ground, leaving an unfenced area for wildlife passage. The fencing will follow the line identified in the General Plan. During construction, GPS coordinates will be taken and transferred to a map for future reference. The existing area consists of steep inclines on the side slopes and ridge tops. On the open riding side of the delineation line the vegetation is mostly grass, on the trail riding only side, the vegetation is mostly shrubs. Although identified in the General Plan, the trail riding only area has never been delineated on the ground. Over 100,000 visitors use the park each year. Uncontrolled use of this area has resulted in resource damage, erosion, public safety issues, access problems and confusion for the visitors. Without the signed and fenced delineation, the creation of volunteer trails and unauthorized hill climbs will continue.
