Document Attached

 

The City of Carpinteria Environmental Review Committee will review the Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Local Coastal Program Amendment (LCPA) associated with the Linden Avenue Casitas Pass Road Interchanges and Via Real Extension, South Coast HOV Lanes and Santa Claus Lane Bike Path projects.

 

The LCPA consists of: 1) text amendments to the agriculture section of the Carpinteria Coastal Land Use Plan; 2) creation in the Zoning Code of a Whitney Site Agriculture Overlay District; 3) text amendments to the wetland sections of the Carpinteria Coastal Land Use Plan; 4) creation in the Zoning Code of a Transportation Corridor Wetland Overlay District; and 5) redesignation of the transportation portion of the Whitney parcel from agriculture to transportation corridor and removal of the agriculture zone district.

 

The proposed Transportation Corridor Wetland Overlay District would generally encompass: Highway 101 (including a narrow strip of land along the outside shoulders) from the western boundary of the City of Carpinteria to the approximate vicinity of the Casitas Pass Road overcrossing; the alignments for Linden Avenue and Casitas Pass Road overcrossings within 1,000 feet of Highway 101; and the alignment for the Via Real extension. The proposed Whitney Site Agriculture Overlay District would encompass the remainder of the original 8.95-acre Whitney parcel (APN 001-070-012) not dedicated to public roadway purposes.

 

The project is subject to review per the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

 

Applicant: City of Carpinteria
