Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the San Diego River Trail - Qualcomm Stadium Segment Project

SANDAG, as lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), has prepared a draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the San Diego River Trail – Qualcomm Stadium Segment project.

The proposed project would consist of Class I bikeway and is located in the Mission Valley community of the City of San Diego, along an approximately 0.8 mile segment extending eastward from the terminus of Fenton Parkway along a vegetated slope behind the Fenton Marketplace shopping center and through the southern portion of the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot to connect with Rancho Mission Road. Most of the trail would occur on existing paved surfaces within the stadium parking lot. Some grading would be required along the vegetated slope behind the shopping center in the western extent of the trail. The trail would be approximately 10 feet wide with 2-foot-wide shoulders. The proposed project includes the construction of a 2.5-foot wide bioswale and retaining wall in the western portion of the project. Portions of the trail within the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot would be separated from existing adjacent operations by a barrier, such as portable concrete barriers (K rails) or chain-link fencing. The San Diego River is located adjacent to the trail on the south; however, the trail would not encroach into the river corridor, but would be located entirely within developed areas and the slope behind the Fenton Marketplace shopping center. Construction of the trail would remove a total of approximately 56 parking spaces within the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot. These spaces are not public parking spaces, but are utilized for events at the stadium. Lighting may be provided at select locations along the proposed trail to provide safety and security.

In accordance with CEQA, this public notice officially notifies the general public, public agencies, and interested individuals and organizations that a 30-day public review period will begin on November 4, 2015. Written comments regarding the adequacy of the draft MND must be received no later than December 4, 2015, and should be mailed to Lauren Esposito at SANDAG, 401 B Street, Suite 800, San Diego, CA 92101 or emailed to lauren.esposito@sandag.org.

Copies of the Draft MND and other supporting materials are available on KeepSanDiegoMoving.com/SDRiverTrail or at the SANDAG offices at the address provided above. Additionally, copies of the Draft MND can be found at the Mission Valley Library, 2123 Fenton Parkway, San Diego, CA 92108.
