The project is located east of residential development along Dover Drive, immediately west and downslope of Castaways Park, and southwest of Newport Harbor Lutheran Church and School. An unnamed drainage located parallel to Dover Drive appears to contain perennial flowing waters. This drainage flows from north to south for 500 linear feet and contains riparian and wetland species.
GP: REOS - Recreational & Environmental Open Space
Z: PC-43 - Upper Castaways Planned Community. The proposed project generally would be constructed in road right-of-way. According to the City's Municipal Code, rights-of-way are unzoned and the proposed project is an allowable use within various zoning classifications.
The sidewalk construction concept would enhance pedestrian access and safety while also minimizing potential impacts to adjacent steep slopes (in Reach 1) and potential wetland vegetation (in Reaches 2 and 3). None of the project reach designs require retaining wall construction.
