NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Northstar Community Services District currently maintains 17.89 miles of earthen trail as part of the Tompkins Memorial Trail (TMT}) network. The TMT network is largely developed; however, from time to time minor extensions are proposed to provide connectivity between existing neighborhoods and newly developed subdivisions. Extensions are developed as 5-foot-wide unpaved, native earth trails, and construction activities occur within an approximately 8-foot-wide area of disturbance. Maintenance of the TMT network occurs regularly in the summer months.
