This morning the Board of the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) unanimously adopted the feasibility study over the Corridor that will eventually contain the Edna Price Canyon trail between San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach. This will eventually become a segment of the Anza Historic Trail. This study has been ongoing for the last year or so and is the result of a CalTrans Community Based Transportation Planning Grant. It was developed by Questa Engineering.
Next steps are the creation of various Environmental Impact Reports (EIR’s) that will cover the various segments of the trail.
The Feasibility Study identified opportunities and and constraints along various trail segment options. There are preferred routes… secondary options etc… all of which need to be analyzed in great detail taking into consideration all the various constraints so as to be able to create the best ultimate alternative given the constraints.
It has been about 8 years of work so far. I started chatting with stakeholders circa 2008.. and that work led to an initial mapping outlined in previous posts… and then advocacy work with the various communities and stakeholder groups along the route. There are many steps still to go… but we have started… and we are well along the way.
thank you to all the jurisdictions, individuals, and groups that have lent their support.
