Rail Trail Segments 10/11 Scoping Meeting and Notice of Preparation for an EIR

The County of Santa Cruz is preparing an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and hosting a public scoping meeting on the Rail Trail Segments 10 and 11 project. See the full Notice of Preparation of an EIR and Scoping Meeting document here. The focus of this notice and the scoping meeting is specifically to gather input on potential environmental issues and project alternatives to be evaluated in the environmental review process, not the merits of the project itself or the project design. There will be future opportunities for community input on the schematic plans. Responses should be received no later than Tuesday, December 7, 2021, 5:00 PM.
