LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1373, as amended, Bates. Public resources: San Clemente: road construction. State highways: State Route 241: reduction.
Existing law establishes the state highway system throughout the state and designates State Route 241 from State Route 5 south of the City of San Clemente to State Route 91 in the City of Anaheim.
This bill would delete from the state highway system the portion of State Route 241 from State Route 5 south of the City of San Clemente to Oso Parkway east of the City of Mission Viejo.

Existing law vests the Department of Transportation with full possession and control of the state highway system and associated property. The Planning and Zoning Law requires each city, county, and city and county to prepare and adopt a general plan that contains certain mandatory elements, including a land use element and an open-space element.

This bill would prohibit certain governmental entities from constructing, funding, or operating, or from taking property to construct, fund, or operate, a new major thoroughfare in San Clemente in an area that is subject to a conservation easement or that is designated as open space protected by a local initiative. The bill would provide that these provisions do not apply to the modification of major thoroughfares that exist in San Clemente on or before January 1, 2020.
