Document Description
The document is an IS/MND for the ParkIT! Shuttle Program & Day-Use Reservation System (Proposed Project). The Proposed Project consists of two (2) primary project components: 1) the ParkIT! Shuttle Program and associated subcomponents; and 2) State Park’s proposed Day-Use Reservation System for visitors to Point Lobos. ParkIT! Shuttle Program The ParkIT! Shuttle Program consists of three (3) distinct elements: 1) construction of an alternative parking facility located at a portion of vacant land commonly known as Marathon Flats; 2) temporary use of the Blue Roof Office Buildings’ parking lot and/or Palo Corona Regional Park parking lot while the Marathon Flats parking facility is under construction; and 3) shuttle service between Marathon Flats (or temporarily from the Blue Roof Office Buildings’ parking lot), Rancho Canada, Point Lobos, and access for the public to San Jose Creek trailhead when it opens to the public. Day-Use Reservation System State Parks would implement a Day-Use Reservation System to address the rapid, unsustainable visitation growth at Point Lobos. To enter Point Lobos, all visitors other than State Parks staff, Point Lobos Foundation staff, and docents on duty will need a reservation. Reservations will be made for one (1) of four (4) locations: in-reserve parking; offsite parking at the Marathon Flats Facility; Palo Corona, or walk-in. Visitors can request a reservation for any of the four (4) locations online or in person. If, during Park operations, State Parks observes adverse impacts because of visitor overuse, State Parks would implement adaptive management strategies to mitigate and minimize the impacts consistent with current practices. State Parks will implement a public outreach program to inform visitors that a reservation will be necessary to access Point Lobos. Outreach will include updated signage, information on State Park’s website, press releases, and other similar methods.
