Document Description
The California Department of Parks and Recreation (the Department) Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division is the lead agency for the preparation of a General Plan Update and associated environmental impact report (EIR) for the original Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA). (A General Plan was prepared for both the original Carnegie SVRP with an expansion area, but the Expansion Area has been removed from the Project). The decision-making body for the General Plan Update and EIR is the OHMVR Commission, a body of appointees that advises the OHMVR Division and has final authority of approval of General Plans and certification of associated EIRs for SVRAs. The OHMVR Division has prepared this Notice of Preparation (NOP) pursuant to Section 15082 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines. This NOP informs agencies and the public that an EIR is being prepared to address potential impacts resulting from the approval and implementation of the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area General Plan Update. Agencies should comment on the elements of potential environmental effects relevant to their statutory responsibilities in connection with the proposed Project. The OHMVR Division previously prepared a General Plan Revision and associated Program EIR for the original Carnegie SVRA and the adjacent 3,100-acre Alameda and Tesla Expansion Area in 2016. Lawsuits and subsequent legislation required that the Alameda and Tesla Expansion Area not be designated as an SVRA. The Department elected to prepare a standalone General Plan Update for the original 1,575-acre Carnegie SVRA.
