California Environmental Quality Act

The MCOSD prepared a draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the proposed Cascade Canyon Bridges and Trail Improvement Project. The IS/MND provides information regarding the setting of the project area, the project description, analysis of potentially significant environmental impacts that could result from implementation of the proposed project, and mitigation measures to reduce potentially significant environmental impacts to a less than significant level.  The Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration and the draft IS/MND can be accessed using the links provided below.

The public is invited to submit comments on the draft IS/MND documents during a public comment period from February 16 to March 19, 2021. The MCOSD will consider comments received during the public comment period prior to finalizing the IS/MND.  Comments can be submitted online using the link provided below or by email sent to Jon Campo, Principal Natural Resources Planner at

An online public meeting is scheduled March 4, 2021, 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.  At this meeting, MCOSD staff will present the proposed project and conclusions from the draft IS/MND, and will answer questions from attendees.
