d) Socio-economic Impacts
In considering land use and socioeconomic impacts, Alternatives 2 and 5 both have advantages and disadvantages. Alternative 5 would avoid adverse effects to the Veluzat Motion Picture Ranch. This advantage of Alternative 5 is offset by the fact that it would require the acquisition of substantially more private land than Alternative 2 and would place the new transmission line adjacent to more existing homes than Alternative 2. Alternative 5 is also expected to result in the loss of at least one existing home and the consequent displacement of the residents of any homes that need to be acquired. As a result, Alternative 5 has a greater magnitude of impact to existing land uses than Alternative 2. If Alternative 2 is combined with Alternative 4, then the combination of Alternative 2 and Alternative 4 would have the least impacts because it would avoid the effects to the Motion Picture Ranch as well as impacts of Alternative 5 on existing land uses in the Leona Valley and Agua Dulce.
