Document Description
Santa Claus Lane is a two-lane roadway in the Toro Canyon Plan area that extends approximately 3,000 feet from Padaro Lane to Spindrift/Sand Point Road and the U.S. Highway 101 (U.S. 101) southbound on-ramp to the southeast. The County of Santa Barbara (County) proposes streetscape improvements along Santa Claus Lane to improve access to the beach, provide new recreational amenities to the public, increase accessibility to all users of the project area, and improve drainage and safety along Santa Claus Lane. The proposed improvements would occur entirely within Caltrans right-of-way (ROW), County ROW, Union Pacific Railroad (UPR) ROW, and County-owned parcels. The project would encompass approximately 5.91 acres (257,595 square feet), shown as Assessor Parcel Numbers (APN) 005-010-025, 005-440-002, and 005-440-003.
