SLOCOG proposes to install a community gateway monument sign for the unincorporated community of San Simeon. The sign is recommended in the North Coast Scenic Byway Corridor Plan to enhance the beauty of the highway corridor. The sign will enhance community identity and wayfinding for Byway visitors.
The sign will be installed along an already-graded area within State right-of-way. It is recommended by the North Coast Scenic Byway Corridor Plan (2014). Caltrans approved a NEPA CE for the project on 4/10/14 and a Revalidation on 8/19/16. Prior to the re-validation, Caltrans completed biological and cultural resources field review, and SLOCOG completed a Visual Impact Assessment. The county is not requiring a land use permit.
