2. Proposal to Designate Lucas Valley Rd as Scenic Highway

Preview

At the request of Supervisor Adams and in response to a proposal from residents in the Lucas Valley area, the Board will consider the feasibility of pursuing a Scenic County Highway designation for Lucas Valley Road. The goal of the Scenic Highway Program is to protect and enhance the natural scenic beauty of the state’s highways and adjacent corridors through special conservation treatment.

Need more info? See the report on Lucas Valley Rd.

Review

After hearing a staff presentation and public testimony, the Board acknowledged the scenic character of Lucas Valley Road, but expressed concern that seeking a formal designation from the state would entail numerous challenges for the County, including substantial workload impacts for Community Development Agency staff. The Board declined to direct staff to add this proposal to their near-term work plan.
