Document Description
The Twin Peaks Promenade Improvement Project will convert a closed roadway into a linear park and tail to serve the General Public and promote a large range of recreation. The scope includes: 1. Conversion of 1/3 to 1/2 of the roadway (approximately 10,000-20,000 square feet) from paved asphalt to permeable compacted aggregate paving 2. Removal of all or most of the concrete barrier and small section of existing metal guardrail along the western side of the pavement, to provide more expansive views for park users and to minimize graffiti. 3. Removal of narrow informal dirt trail just east of the concrete barrier. 4. New landscaping using local species to support native habitat. 5. Installation of site accessories such as: bicycle racks, boulders, new seating, split rail fencing to protect habitat zones, and bollards at emergency entrances. 6. New trail head, wayfinding and interpretive signage. 7. Configuration adjustments to parking between peaks, with concrete ADA parking stall and new pavement striping.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1 (Section 15301) and Class 3 (Section 15303)
Reasons for Exemption
This project in its approved form has been determined to be exempt from environmental review because it would implement the Recreation and Park Department Standard Construction Measures that would avoid significant impacts. Furthermore, construction methods would comply with even stricter standards and enhance wildlife habitat in accordance with the “Recovery Action Plan for the Mission Blue Butterfly at Twin Peaks Natural Area”, dated April 7, 2009, under the “Memorandum of Understanding between the United States Fish & Wildlife Services and San Francisco Park and Recreation Department (SFPRD)”, dated April 16, 2009. Removal of existing concrete barriers would improve scenic resources. The existing roadway would be modified for the purpose of public safety and the narrowing of existing asphalt for a multi-use trail would increase pervious surface. Small parking lots are designed to comply with regulations and would not significantly increase the existing paving footprint.
