The City of Santa Cruz, as lead agency, is preparing a Rail Trail Segments 8 and 9 Environmental Impact Report (EIR). A public scoping meeting regarding this is scheduled for Oct. 6 at 5 p.m. via Zoom. The City also welcomes written public comment submissions no later than Oct. 15.

The Rail Trail Segments 8 and 9 Project is a 2.2-mile bicycle and pedestrian system that extends along the Santa Cruz Branch Rail Line corridor, from the Beach Street/Pacific Avenue Roundabout on the west to the eastern side of 17th Avenue on the east. Segment 8 (0.6 mile) is comprised of a Class IV on-street bicycle system and pedestrian sidewalk improvements. Segment 9 (1.6 miles) is comprised of a multi-use bicycle and pedestrian trail. The project is part of the larger Monterey Bay Sanctuary Scenic Trail Network.

The focus of 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.
