EIR to be prepared for Felton Meadow project

An outdoor recreational/educational facility being planned by Mount Hermon Association will be the subject of a $130,000 Environmental Impact Report to be prepared over the next 10 months.

Mount Hermon Association has proposed building in bike, climbing, and educational facility on the 14-acre meadow next to the Felton Faire Shopping Center.

As proposed, the meadow would be developed as Velocity Bike Park, with two pump tracks and an advanced bike structure using a lift to transport bikes to the start of downhill trails.  There would also be a day camp for children, a retail and rental building, a community garden, a splash park, and a climbing structure.

The Felton Meadows proposal is a large project and would be a major part of the town of Felton and the gateway to the entire San Lorenzo Valley.  I am pleased that a detailed analysis of this complex proposal will be prepared.  About 10 months
