EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Multiple; primary corridor aligns with Santa Cruz Branch Rail Line right-of-way

Document Description
The purpose of the Master Plan is to establish the continuous alignment and set of design standards for a multi-use trail for the length of Santa Cruz County. The proposed trail alignment typically follows the Santa Cruz Branch line right-of-way (a 32-mile, continuous travel corridor now owned by the Santa Cruz RTC), and is separated into three reaches: The northern reach; the central reach; and the Watsonville reach. The project would include 49.6 miles of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Implementation would require land clearing, grading, and construction (including asphalt, fencing, signage, landscaping, and other improvements). Administration of the proposed MBSST would involve the RTC, the local jurisdictions including the cities of Santa Cruz Capitola, and Watsonville, and the County of Santa Cruz, and any other implementing entity.
