We would like to install two signs that read "Inyo County the Heart of the El Camino Sierra". This is the first step in a process that will include Point of Interest Signs throughout Inyo County, designed to increase tourism in the County as travelers pass through on Hwy 395. These signs are in the State of California Right of way, so we will need to apply for an encroachment permit from Caltrans district 9.
This project will have no significant environmental impact. Each sign will be on a single post and will be installed within the previously disturbed shoulder of Hwy 395. The sign is "3x4" and will be mounted at a height of 8 feet, therefore it is not oversized or unsightly.
