Document Title
North Coast Trails
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The project will occur on a trail easement at the Kashia Coastal Reserve, just north of Salt Point State Park, which is undeveloped open space historically used for grazing, and a trail easement at Stewarts Point located between the Stewart’s Point Store and a single residence to the north, also historically used for grazing.
Document Description
The proposed MND is presented as the Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration and the Initial Study on which it is based. The Initial Study has been prepared in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), Public Resources Code 21000 et seq. and the State CEQA Guidelines, California Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq. The proposed Project includes construction and operation of two trail segments, a 1.1-mile trail on the Kashia Coastal Reserve and a 0.9-mile trail on the Stewarts Point Ranch. The Project will be built on trail easements conveyed to Sonoma County Regional Parks (SCRP) as part of the conservation agreements for the two properties. The proposed Project also includes construction of facilities needed to support public use of these trails, including bridge replacement, parking areas, restrooms, gates, fencing, and informational and trail signs (these improvements are hereafter called the “Project”). The two trail segments will be part of the California Coastal Trail that will eventually extend from the Mexican border to the Oregon border.
