Document Description
NOTE: Revised copy of Volume III of the Final EIR. The proposed project would consist of a single-story, 2,700-square foot interpretive center that would include a multipurpose exhibit room with interpretive displays, classroom, office space for staff, new restrooms, custodial room, and storage room. An entry plaza, would serve as the main entryway to the Interpretive Center connecting it to the parking lot. The Interpretive Center would be supported by septic tanks since municipal sewer service is not available at this location. A 30,000-square-foot surface parking lot, consisting of 43 parking spaces (35 visitor, 5 staff, and 3 handicap access) and a bus drop-off area accommodating two visitor buses would be included. The proposed project would include indigenous plants to be used as landscape screening and a low-flow irrigation system, which would help limit the use of potable water for landscape irrigation. Other components including the existing outdoor lecture benches, rescued animal enclosures, and storage and trash containers would be relocated on the proposed project site. Utility lines supporting the proposed project would be located underground. A water storage tank would also be located in the proposed project site for the fire suppression system.
