Document Description
Site Development Permit (SDP) and Coastal Development Permit (CDP) to allow for the improvement of a pedestrian trail system, associated appurtenances and observation points, implementation of a phased revegetation program, removal of non-native vegetarian and re-contouring and revegetation of the former ball field within the Hillside Section of the Sunset Cliffs Natural Park (SCNP) south of Ladera Street Trail improvements include use of stabilized decomposed granite (DG) to the existing 8-foot sewer easement access path and would comply with American with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility requirements and will also provide bicycle access through the park. Primary trails (up to 6 feet wide) will be improved with natural surfacing (or DG as necessary to create a stable pathway) to connect various park uses, link observation points and link the park to the surrounding community. Secondary trails (up to 3 feet wide) would be improved with natural surfacing and an ADA trail would be created to allow access from the lower parking lot to an observation point. The secondary and tertiary trails not part of the planned trail system, will be restored with native vegetation to match the surrounding native vegetation. Additionally, a new drainage swale vegetated with native plants will be created on the slope above the new multi-use trail to reduce the amount of runoff crossing the trail from the hillside above. The project also includes removal of the concrete slab remaining from demolition of the burnt down southern Ladera Street properties and revegetation of the area with native plants.
