Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Two community parks: Quarry Park – Open Space, Public Recreation, Agriculture, Institutional Pillar Point Bluff Park – Agriculture, Public Space, Open Space, General Industrial, Commercial Recreation
Document Description
The purpose of the Proposed Project is to conduct the Pilot Program at both Pillar Point Bluff and Quarry Park for 12 months (1) to determine if the above-mentioned rules are being adhered to and (2) to make management adjustments as needed to avoid or minimize potential impacts to the environment. To evaluate the impacts of the Pilot Program, an Adaptive Management Plan (AMP) has been prepared. Key components of the AMP are the impact indicators/metrics and measurable standards that Parks staff will monitor on a recurring basis throughout the Pilot Program. The AMP would allow Parks to manage the Pilot Program in a transparent and effective manner.
