Document Description
The City of Newport Beach is proposing to implement the Santa Ana Heights Joint Use Channel Maintenance/Equestrian Facility, which would provide equestrian recreational opportunities for nearby residents while allowing the area within the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve known as "the mesa," which overlooks the Back Bay to be revegetated with native habitat (coastal sage scrub). The proposed equestrian facilities include three riding arenas of varying sizes, a redefined/relocated riding and hiking trail (Mesa Trail), and a treatment train of storm water runoff treatment control BMPs situated throughout the 2.92-acre project area. Because more than one half of the project site is located within the Central Coastal NCCP/HCP Reserve, the City is also proposing a Resource Management Program (RMP), which provides guidelines for the protection of existing natural resources during the construction and ongoing operation of the Santa Ana Heights Joint Use Channel Maintenance/Equestrian Facility.
