Document Description
The applicant, is requesting approval for rear parking lot modifications for an existing 3.4 acre apartment complex site with 88 units. In 2006, the applicant backfilled material into Ellinwood Creek along the rear (or east side) of the property without prior approval. This creek is a side channel which diverges from Walnut Creek and reconnects to the main stem downstream from the project site. According to a biological study of non-native fill (gravel and asphalt content) was placed as far down as the water line. Samples taken adjacent to the creek bank indicate that up to 2-feet of fill was placed. Although it is unknown what the slope of the creek bank was prior to the grading activities, the finished sloped is approximately 1.75:1 to 2:1, which is similar to the opposite bank. The applicant currently would like to continue with other improvements on the property, including re-striping the parking lot. The site is developed with a 114 space parking lot which is proposed to be increases to 136 automobile parking spaces and 3 motorcycle parking spaces. When the previous grading activities occurred, an unknown number of trees were removed or pruned to accommodate the additional fill and construction equipment access to the creek.
