Title

Amendment to the Master Plan of Arterial Highways

 

Overview

The Orange County Transportation Authority administers the Master Plan of Arterial Highways, including the review and approval of amendments requested by local agencies.  The City of San Clemente has requested an amendment to the Master Plan of Arterial Highways that is recommended for approval.  An update on active Master Plan of Arterial Highways amendments is also provided.

 

Recommendation(s)

A.                     Approve the amendment to the Master Plan of Arterial Highways for South El Camino Real between Avenida Mendocino and the southern city limits from a secondary (four-lane, undivided) arterial to a divided collector (two-lane, divided) arterial. The proposed amendment will become final, contingent upon the Orange County Transportation Authority receiving documentation that the City of San Clemente has amended its general plan and has complied with the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act.

 

If the City of San Clemente does not update its general plan within three years to reflect the Master Plan of Arterial Highway amendment, the contingent amendment will expire, but can be returned to the Orange County Transportation Authority’s Board of Directors for reconsideration and action.

 

If the original proposed Master Plan of Arterial Highways amendment is modified as a result of the California Environmental Quality Act and/or general plan amendment process, the modified Master Plan of Arterial Highways amendment shall be returned to the Orange County Transportation Authority’s Board of Directors for consideration and action.

 

B.                      Direct the Executive Director of Planning, or his designee, to file a Notice of Exemption from the California Environmental Quality Act in support of the Master Plan of Arterial Highways amendment.

 

C.                     Receive and file a status report on the active Master Plan of Arterial Highways amendments.
