Proposal to construct roadway and roadside improvements within the right-of-way of 7th Avenue between Capitola Road and Eaton Street. The project includes the construction of sidewalks, drainage and landscape improvements on both sides of 7th Avenue. More specifically, it includes curbs, gutters, and 4-6 foot wide separated and non-separated sidewalks, with 4-foot wide planting strips and on-street parking in areas where feasible. The proposed project would provide for the following: maintain and improve existing traffic and bike lanes, and most of the existing on-street parking, lengthening the 7th Avenue southbound right turn lane on Eaton Street, dedicated right and left turn lanes on 7th Avenue at the intersection of Capitola Road, street tree planting along both sides, roadway resurfacing, pads for bus stop shelters, ADA accessible sidewalk ramps, a short section of a retaining wall not to exceed 4 feet in height at the eastern side of the intersection with Capitola Road, and grading within the appealable area of the coastal zone. Grading will involve about 2,860 cubic yards with approximately 2,860 cubic yards of cut, 260 cubic yards of fill, and 2,600 cubic yards of export. As this is entirely a Santa Cruz County Department of Public Works project with no impacts to biotic habitats, no grading permits are required, however, grading is considered in the environmental review as the project involves more than 1,000 cubic yards. The proposal requires a Coastal Development Permit including Significant Tree Removal.
