Reasons for Exemption
The project consists of the excavation and removal of concrete footings and disc golf baskets. Concrete footings will be poured with new baskets installed in both existing and newly identified locations. Work will occur in the frequently pedestrian trafficked Cypress and Oaks disc golf courses located in areas classified as a ruderal disturbed environment. The project locations are limited in area and would not require extensive site preparation beyond the excavation of holes in previously excavated areas, and the staging of hand tools in adjacent parking lots.
