Moss Parcel Map Subdivision in the Trinidad Area
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
A new application for a Parcel Map Subdivision of an approximately 94 acre vacant parcel, into four parcels. Proposed Parcel 1 will be approximately 20.11 acres, proposed Parcel 2 will be approcimately 21.02 acres, proposed Parcel 3 will be approximately 32.11 acres and proposed Parcel 4 will be approximately 21 acres. All parcels will be served by on-site water and septic systems. The developer lost all rights to subdivide under a previous tentative map approved for this site in 1997. The Court of Appeal ruled in 2003 that the previous map expired. Pursuant to that ruling, when a tentative map expires the developer must start the subdivision process again (in order to pursue the project). This new application represents a new project and requires preparation of a Supplemental Environmental Impact Report. However, the Court of Appeal additionally ruled that the SEIR review under section 21166 shall only address the project's environmental impacts on (1) water supply to the City of trinidad (including sufficiency for fire suppression activities, and (2) the population of coastal cutthroat trout in Luffenholtz Creek.
