Document Description
The application is proposing to construct a paved pedestrian/bicycle path across the Mirada Surf parcel. This new path will replace an informal dirt path which runs along the nearby coastal bluffs. The new pathway will have a total width of 12-foot paved with 2-foot graveled shoulers, and include benches, kiosks and bathrooms at the southern end near Magellan north of intermittent stream. One bridge will be constructed at the east end of the path to cross an unnamed, intermittent stream. Access at the east end will be directly from Magellan Avenue. The west end of the path will tie into what remains of the Mirada Road right-of-way in the County's jurisdiction of Coronado. At this end of the path, the existing asphalt, concrete curbs and K-rails will be removed, the area regraded and revegetated with native grass species. A portion of this work area is within the Caltrans' right-of-way and will require an encroachment permit. In addition, at this end, a small berm (approximately 3 feet in height) will be graded in order to direct stormwater runoff from Highway 1 into a drainage ditch that then safely conveys it to the adjacent beach. That pathway has been routed to avoid any significant vegetation and to remain well clear of the estimated 50-year bluff erosion limit. At the east end, the applicant will have to remove approximately 775 sq. ft. of willow riparian habitat in order to construct the bridge. The applicant is proposing to mitigate this impact by establishing an equal amount of habitat to the immediate north of the bridge site.
