Document Description
North Campus Open Space Public Access Project 2020157 The North Campus Open Space (NCOS) is a large restoration project within a larger (652 acre) permanently protected coastal open space. WCB will fund several public access components. The parking lot will be renovated including ADA parking, bike path, and an automatic gate. Two overlooks will be constructed of decomposed granite (DG) and installed with benches. DG trails from the sidewalk to the trail head and visitor plaza, and an entry trail to the wetlands will be constructed. A post and cable fence will line the sidewalk, overlook, and trail to protect sensitive areas. The project will install a storage facility for an all-terrain wheelchair. A bioswale will be constructed to assist with drainage from the parking lot.
