Use of Caltrans Bypass Alignment   

A Linear Park and Trail Plan (LPTP) Overlay is applied over the original Devil’s Slide Bypass Alignment.  
LCP Policy 11.33  requires preparation and CCC certification of a Specific Plan for all properties within the Bypass Alignment before any rezoning, transfer of Caltrans title, lot line adjustments, or development, are permitted.

In Feb 2017 Caltrans notified local partners that they are "in the process of decertifying the bypass right-of-way land behind Montara for a potential sale to Montara Water & Sanitary District (MWSD). The proposed use is as watershed for an aquifer with a trail system…and associated supporting improvements thereto."  

Responses concerned the need for certified Specific Plan per LCP Policy 11.33 before transfer of title, and LAFCo approval to activate MWSD recreation function:
     County Planning letter to Caltrans 2/23/17
     CCC letter to Caltrans 2/28/17
     MWSD letter to County Planning 3/27/17
     MWSD letter to Caltrans 6/22/17
     Committee for Green Foothills letter 6/23/17

MCC 2003 recommendation during the LCP Update process included this:  “All the lands owned by Caltrans as part of the obsolete bypass should be merged and given an appropriate zoning and community parks overlay to ensure that they are acquired by a recreation agency for the recreational benefit of the surrounding community.”
