A request by Davis Family for a Minor Use Permit/Coastal Development Permit (DRC2019-00178) to construct a 1,800-linear-feet long agricultural road and 74-foot free-span bridge across Little Cayucos Creek to replace the existing site access.

The project is within Agriculture land use category and is located at 1101 Little Cayucos Creek Road, northeast of community of Cayucos. The project is in the Estero Planning Area.

Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued on June 25, 2020 , for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Biological Resources and Tribal Cultural Resources and are included as conditions of approval. The Environmental Document is available for public review at the Department of Planning and Building, at the below address. A copy of the Environmental Document is also available on the Planning and Building Department website at www.sloplanning.org.
