Laurelwood Park and Sugarloaf Open Space Management Plan
|Management Plan Project Information
The Parks and Recreation Department amended the Laurelwood Park and Sugarloaf Open Space Management Plan, originally adopted by the City Council in 2007. Over the past three years, many members of the public expressed an interest in allowing more hiking trails as part of the Management Plan. The proposed plan amendment was designed to meet this interest.
The Parks and Recreation Department hired 2M Associates, landscape architects who specialize in trail planning, to analyze alignment changes suggested by members of the public who have expertise in trail building. 2M Associates developed some recommended modifications to the original trail alignments as part of the Plan Amendment.
2M Associates and city staff finalized the Management Plan Amendment and created an Environmental Document for formal review. The formal review consisted of an initial comment period on the Environmental Document, a meeting with the Park and Recreation Commission and a meeting with the City Council for formal adoption of the amended Plan.
The City of San Mateo prepared an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration, which identified and discussed potential environmental impacts of the project and proposed mitigation measures to be incorporated in the project to eliminate any potentially significant impacts. The City of San Mateo Park and Recreation Commission held a Public Hearing to review this project and made a recommendation to the City Council. City Council adopted the amendment to the Laurelwood Park and Sugarloaf Mountain Open Space Management Plan on October 5, 2015.
