Bay Area Ridge Trail: Hood Mountain to Highway 12
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The County of Sonoma through its Regional Parks Department will construct a 0.30 mile segment of the Bay Area Ridge trail, including improvements to facilitate a safe and accessible crossing of Highway 12, in Sonoma County. The project will complete a critical link in the Ridge trail, connecting Hood Mountain Regional Park with the City of Santa Rosa.
The proposed project is categorically exempt from the CEQA in that it involves a minor change to the operations of an existing publicly-owned facility involving negligible expansion of use (14 California Code or Regulations Section 15301c). Examples of this exemption include minor modifications to existing streets and pedestrian trails for public safety purposes.
