Document Description
The project site is the 118-acre Cerro San Luis Natural Reserve, which is located within the western portion of the City of San Luis Obispo at 1000 Fernandez Road. The Open Space Winter Evening Hours of Use at Cerro San Luis Natural Reserve project would revise the City’s existing Open Space Regulations (San Luis Obispo Municipal Code, Chapter 12.22) to permanently extend the public use hours on the existing Cerro San Luis Natural Reserve trail system within City property. The hours of use would be extended to between one hour before sunrise until 8:30 PM when daylight savings time is in effect. Public use hours when daylight savings is not in effect would remain from one hour before sunrise until one hour after sunset. The City’s Parks & Recreation Department proposes to develop & provide information & educational materials for the public that is specific to nighttime use and wildlife at the Reserve, and permit applicants would be required to acknowledge & confirm understanding of provided materials. The City’s Ranger Service personnel would provide oversight & additional patrol of the Reserve during the extended hours of use. A permit program would be permanently implemented to limit access to the Cerro San Luis trail system to 65 individuals during the extended hours, consistent with existing baseline.
