Document Description
The proposed project requires the approval of a Site Development Permit (SDP) to allow for improvements (widening) to an existing dirt trail, south and west of Camino Ruiz Park. Improvements to the existing trail are required to connect to the larger trail system within the Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve Open Space Park. The proposed trail follows an existing trail created by migrants, which as been abandoned since construction of the Neighborhood park. Debris from the migrant camps would be removed as part of the project and habitat restored during trail construction. The trail has an elevation change of approximately 220 feet from the canyon rim to the canyon floor and would begin at the southwest corner of the Park, on the north facing slope for a total length of approximately 3,210 feet. The existing trail varies in width, but is roughly two-feet wide along most of its alignment. The proposed formalization of this trail would require widening it to four feet. For much of the alignment, this would only require trimming the vegetation. In addition to the trail improvements, the proposed project includes the construction of two small puncheon bridges to avoid unnecessary impacts to the existing small urban drainages.
