Document Description
The project proposes to remove approximately 3,595 cy of sandstone rock; 500 cy will remain on the property for future use by the landowner and 3,095 will be exported from the site to a local stone supplier. Approximately 725 cy of the total amount had been removed and stockpiled on the site without a permit, resulting in a zoning violation for grading without a permit. This project will correct that violation. The rock removal will occur within coast live oak woodland/forest, an Environmentally Sensitive Habitat. Approximately 2,870 cy had been placed within the oak forest during flood control activities 25 to 30 years ago. The project includes approximately three acres of coast live oak riparian habitat restoration.
