Comment period continues on draft EIR for Monterey Bay Scenic Trail

Public comment is still being accepted for the draft environmental impact report on the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Scenic Trail Network Draft Master Plan. Released last month by the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission, the document explains the project, a network of about 50 continuous multi-use bicycle and pedestrian trails stretching from the San Mateo County line north of Davenport down past the Pajaro River in Watsonville. With a proposed spine following the 32 mile Santa Cruz Branch rail line right-of-way, the network will feature spur trails accessing activity centers, coastal points and other desirable destinations. Read the full report at CDs and a limited number of hard copies are available at the RTC’s Santa Cruz and Watsonville offices. Copies also are at the Aptos Branch Library, 7695 Soquel Driver, Aptos; the Branciforte Library, 230 Gault St., Santa Cruz; the Central Branch Library, 224 Church St., Santa Cruz; the Felton Library, 6299 Gushee St., Felton; the Scotts Valley Library, 251 Kings Village Road, Scotts Valley; and the Watsonville Library, 275 Main St., Watsonville. The comment period ends  p.m. July 22.
