MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The project is proposed to provide a pedestrian and bicycle trail linkage between the Top of the World Drive and the County of Orange Aliso and Wood Canyons Park. On-street parking and sidewalk to the trail is also proposed along the western side of the Top of the World Drive. The current trail connection is very steep and significantly erodes as a result of lack of structural stabilization. The pathway would be constructed of varying materials, including decomposed granite, asphalt, and or concrete, and would follow existing hillside contours with minimal excavation. The material selection would accommodate bicyclists, pedestrians, students and strollers with erosion control and drainage reinforcement. To improve adjacent residential privacy, native landscape species would be used to screening along the pathway.
