Notice of Intent to Adopt a Negative Declaration

In compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Monterey County Office of Education has undertaken environmental review for the proposed Santa Rita Union School District, Alisal Union School District, and Salinas Union High School District Transfer of Territory, and intends to adopt a negative declaration. The Monterey Office of Education invites all interested persons and agencies to comment on the proposed territory transfer negative declaration.

Lead Agency
Monterey County Office of Education

Project Location
Within the Central Area Specific Plan Area, north of East Boronda Road and east of the planned extension of Natividad Road, City of Salinas, Monterey County

Project Description
The proposed project is a transfer of territory (five parcels for a total of 297.71 acres) from the Santa Rita Union School District boundary, to the Alisal Union School District boundary. Both districts are in Salinas Union High School District, but because Santa Rita Union School District is a K-8 district and Alisal Union School District is a K-6 district, the proposal would also transfer territory from Santa Rita Union School District to Salinas Union High School District, because the middle school students resulting from the territory transfer would be served by Salinas Union High School District, as Salinas Union High School District serves both middle and high school students.

The proposed project transfer would not result in physical changes either directly or indirectly. Schools that have been planned in the Central Area Specific Plan area would be constructed regardless of the district in which they would be located. The primary purpose of the transfer is to ensure that territories within the proposed CASP area would be within a single elementary school district.
