The State Department of Transportation sets forth guidelines in the Streets and Highways Code, Section 891.2 (see page 45 of the Plan, Exhibit A) that all bikeway plans must follow if they are seeking final approval and State funds. State approval of the Plan enables Monterey County to apply for the various grants offered by the state.
On August 27, 2008 the Planning Commission found the 2008 Update of the Plan consistent with the goals, objectives, and policies in the 1982 Monterey County General Plan, the Local Coastal Program, the Carmel Valley Master Plan, and the Central Salinas Valley Area Plan and recommended the Board adopt the Plan. On October 7, 2008, the Plan was adopted by the Board of Supervisors.
The Plan is exempt from environmental review, according to §15378(b)(4) of the CEQA Guidelines, which provides an exemption for, The creation of government funding mechanisms or other government fiscal activities which do not involve any commitment to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment. The Plan does not provide a commitment to the building of a project; it only includes projects recommended by the Transportation Agency for Monterey County (TAMC) Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee and local jurisdictions. CEQA review will occur when a project is funded.
