Document Description
The proposed project is a new 63-foot long bluff-top retaining wall along the northern boundary of the property, overlooking the southern edge of Carmel Beach. The wall is proposed to range between 7 feet and 8 feet in height, with the top of the wall approx. 16 feet above the existing grade of the beach. The wall is proposed to match, to the extent feasible, the existing bluff face, and would be constructed with the appearance of natural stone. Physical changes to the environment includes the removal of some vegetation (non-native ground covers) and the construction of a 63-foot long, bluff top retaining wall with short wing-walls.
