a, b) The substation site has no recreational uses, and no existing or planned recreational uses are located near the site. Recreational uses along the existing power line alignment are predominantly uncontrolled activities such as bicycling, walking, and jogging. Part of the proposed Kifer-Nortech power line would pass through the Santa Clara Golf and Tennis Club (which is located on both sides of Lafayette Street). The proposed power line would be located along the edge of the street, replacing an existing power line. Proposed power line replacement in this area could briefly disrupt recreational activities, but long-term operation of the power line would not interfere with recreational activities. Therefore, no adverse impacts to recreational uses are anticipated.
