Planning Environmental Reports

Title: Tennis Estates HOA- Negative Declaration No. 11-005

Applicant: Tennis Estates Homeowners Association

Location: 16380 Wimbeldon Ln.

Report Summary

Negative Declaration No. 11-005 analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with a proposal to permit the establishment of a Tree Trimming and Management Plan that will be implemented at the Tennis Estates Homeowners Association property in the Coastal Zone. The Tree Trimming and Management Plan addresses maintenance and management procedures of trees on the subject site including trees that have provided heronry functions for birds protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Additionally, the project includes a mitigation plan and provisions to make permanent all previous work approved under six emergency coastal development permits that were issued by the California Coastal Commission (CCC). The mitigation plan also describes the methods for the installation and requirements for the monitoring of 21 pine trees to be planted as mitigation for seven trees that were previously removed or trimmed on the property without permits. The project requires a coastal development permit to address applicable work with any new and existing trees onsite. 

The ND was available for public review and comment for 30 days, commencing Thursday, May 14, 2015 and ending Friday, June 12, 2015.
