Vacant historic building (Sea Scout Base)/Zoning: Public Facility with Site and Design Overlay/General Plan: Publicly Owned Conservation Land

Document Description
The proposed project involves the relocation, rehabilitation and reuse of a vacant Category I historic building, the former Sea Scout Base. The building would be moved approximately 4 feet northwesterly of the existing location, away from the bay, in order to place the building on a new foundation, raising the building 3.5 feet and clearing the 100 year base flood elevation. This building is currently in an area subject to flooding due to high tides and has deteriorated significantly as a result. As part of the improvements to the existing 2,600 square foot building, an addition of approximately 261 square feet will be added onto the second floor mezzanine. The project also includes construction of a 3-stall parking lot with areas for a trash and mechanical enclosures, removal of portions of an existing sandbag "seawall," removal of a berm between the building and the road, rerouting of an existing trail, and landscape improvements.
