Draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration

The Parks Department has reviewed the initial study for the project and, based upon substantial evidence in the record, finds that:

  1. The project will not adversely affect water or air quality or increase noise levels substantially.
  2. The project will not have adverse impacts on the flora or fauna of the area.
  3. The project will not degrade the aesthetic quality of the area.
  4. The project will not have adverse impacts on traffic or land use.
  5. In addition, the project will not:
    1. Create impacts which have the potential to degrade the quality of the environment.
    2. Create impacts which achieve short-term to the disadvantage of long-term environmental goals.
    3. Create impacts for a project which are individually limited, but cumulatively considerable.
    4. Create environmental effects which will cause substantial adverse effects on human beings, either directly or indirectly.

The County of San Mateo has, therefore, determined that the environmental impact of the project is insignificant.
