Document Description
The Project would allow for a public park with active and passive recreational uses. The park would include one baseball field and two youth soccer fields, a playground and picnic area, a memorial garden, an overlook with seating and a shade structure, pedestrian paths, restroom facilities, and parking. The Project includes 97 parking spaces: 75 spaces in an on-site lot with a designated drop-off area and up to 22 parallel parking spaces along with the park access road near the parking lot. The park would include pedestrian access via two entries from the sidewalk along Superior Boulevard and one entry from the sidewalk along West Coast Highway. Vehicle Ingress and egress would be provided via an access road to the park extending from West Coast Highway through the Newport Banning Ranch property. No nighttime lighting other than for public safety would be provided. Grading would result in excess cut material to be exported from the City. The City proposes that all of the exported soil would go to identified locations on the adjacent Newport Banning Ranch property. Existing oil field roads on the Newport Banning Ranch. The City proposes to widen a portion of the northern side of West Coast Highway from Superior Avenue to a point west of the park access road. A signal is proposed on West Coast highway at the park access road. Because West Coast Highway is a State Highway, Caltrans approvals would be required.
