Document Description
The project consists of connecting an existing multi-use trail within the park to an existing trail within the City of San Jose (Coyote Creek trail) north of the park boundary. These trails are identified in the Santa Clara County Trails Master Plan (1995). The project includes: - Realignment of sections of an existing unpaved trail to move it further away from Coyote Creek. - Constructing a new section of trail linking the existing unpaved trail segment with an existing paved trail south east of the project site. Currently most of this area is turf. - Both the realigned unpaved segments and the new segment will be paved. There will be no change in purpose, use or designation; the trail will be a multi-use trail.

Reasons for Exemption
The project consists of connecting an existing trail under the jurisdiction of the City of San Jose north of the park boundary to an existing trail within the park. The purpose, use, and trail designation remain unchanged. The project site lies within an existing County park. Sections of the trail to be realigned (reconstructed) and paved will be on the same site as the existing trail. Minor alterations to the land (less than 10% slope) including constructing and paving a new trail segment will occur. There will be no impacts to the riparian corridor and no healthy mature trees will be affected. Impacts are expected to be minimal and temporary.
