Nevada County Regional Transportation Plan Updated
The Nevada County Transportation Commission (NCTC) adopted the 2010 Nevada County Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) on July 20, 2011. The 2010 RTP documents the short-term (2010-2020) and long-term (2020-2030) regional transportation policy direction, multi-modal regional transportation needs, and sets forth a financially constrained action plan to meet those needs. The RTP includes the projects that are reasonably anticipated to be funded within the plan's fiscal constraints. The RTP also identifies projects that can be implemented if additional funds become available.
To qualify for funding in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), projects included in a Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) or Caltrans Interregional Transportation Improvement Program (ITIP) must be consistent with adopted RTPs.
For the 2010 Nevada County RTP update, NCTC contracted with De Novo Planning Group to prepare a Program Level Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR). An Environmental Impact Report is an informational document that informs public agency decision makers and the general public of the potential significant environmental impacts of a proposed project, to identify possible means to minimize significant effects, and to describe reasonable alternatives to the project. Because the RTP is a program level planning document containing general policies, guidelines, and lists of proposed projects for which specific design details have not yet been completed, the object of the environmental analysis in this Program Level SEIR is to provide a general overview of the potential impacts of the recommended RTP improvements. Analysis of site-specific environmental impacts of transportation improvement projects will be the responsibility of the lead agency implementing the project and identified in the project level environmental documentation.
