Document Description
The proposed project consists of the following activities and improvements: 1. Parking Lot "I" Improvements: The project will provide the addition of a vegetation buffer along the western edge of Lot I and larger vegetation islands within Lot I, as well as restriping in Lot I, a major parking lot in Brookside Park. These features are planned to improve the stormwater quality of the area. The City will undertake the repairs to the parking lot and the Arroyo Seco Foundation (ASF) will be responsible for the vegetation buffer improvements to the parking lot. 2. Equestrian/Hiking Trail Improvements: The project will improve horse/pedestrian trails within the project limits to enhance habitat and reduce runoff into the Arroyo Seco. This recreational enhancement will also include interpretative information regarding horse waste and measures to mitigate impacts to water quality, while providing a trail/visitor map of Brookside Park recreational features. The ASF will undertake these improvements. 3. Stream/Habitat Restoration Improvements: The project will restore approximately 20 acres of riparian woodland at the northerly project site, immediately south of Devil's Gate Dam, and at the southerly project site, immediately north of the Colorado Street Bridge. This project component will include nonnative plant suppression, debris removal, native habitat enhancements, restoration of a spring and wetland/tributary along the west side of the Arroyo, floodplain revegetation, stormwater treatment, and other riparian and habitat improvements. The ASF will undertake these improvements.
