Document Description
The proposed project involves an amendment to the Orcutt Community Plan (i.e., a general plan amendment [GPA] to the County of Santa Barbara Comprehensive Plan) to include a new local road connection between the Union Valley Parkway/U.S. Highway 101 interchange and the adjoining frontage road (commonly referred to as Rodeo Drive) on the east side of U.S. Highway 101, in the community of Orcutt, immediately south of the city of Santa Maria. The proposed GPA would amend the Transportation subsection of the Orcutt Community Plan to show a second point of access to the existing development east of U.S. Highway 101 via a new local road connection from the Union Valley Parkway/U.S. Highway 101 interchange and to classify Rodeo Drive as a Secondary 1 (Class S-1) roadway in the Transportation subsection of the Orcutt Community Plan. The proposed local road connection would improve access, relieve congestion, and reduce emergency response times during events at the Santa Maria Elks Unocal Event Center, and therefore, would help reduce overall vehicle miles traveled, and improve safety and emergency vehicle access along Santa Maria Way. The proposed project is in its initial phase, as approval of the GPA would not result in any physical development or construction activities. The actual building of the proposed future roadway will require additional review and approval through the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Project Development Process.
