Document Description
The project is a revised site plan for a 0.9 mile river park trail on the west side of Hollister, consisting of 4,800 of linear pathway with a staging area at each end. The staging areas will be paved and will include improvements such as drinking fountains, bicycle racks, native landscaping, interpretive features and fencing. The city approved this project in 2008 and completed environmental review under CEQA, but obtained a new funding source (CDBG grant) in 2017. The site plan revisions consist of updated plans and specifications that include the following: use of decomposed granite for trail surface; removal of irrigation; design to comply with ADA requirements; avoidance of riparian habitat, and southern terminus relocation.
