SCH Number
Lead Agency
City of Dana Point
Document Title
Stonehill Drive Improvement Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
General Plan Circulation Element: Primary Arterial Roadway with Class II Bike Lanes
Document Description
The proposed project involves improvements to Stonehill Drive within the project site boundaries, including proposed addition of a third eastbound lane in order to mitigate significant and unavoidable transportation impacts resulting from the nearby Ganahl Lumber Project in the City of San Juan Capistrano, which was approved on May 12, 2020, and has since become operational. In order to accommodate the third eastbound lane, the proposed project would involve median modifications, curb realignment, utility relocations, and restriping to non-standard lane widths. Other improvements include resurfacing, turn lane striping extensions, new landscaping features, a new raised median for safety purposes, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) curb and sidewalk improvements. The proposed improvements would occur within existing Stonehill Drive right-of-way and would not require any permanent right-of-way acquisitions. No new buildings or structures are proposed as part of the project. The project would provide congestion, safety, and accessibility improvements to the existing Stonehill Drive roadway. The discretionary action to be considered by the City as part of the proposed project is the adoption of the Mitigated Negative Declaration. The project is not located on a site that is included on a list of hazardous materials sites compiled pursuant to Government Code Section 65962.5.
