Pismo Lake 4th Street Fence Installation
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The purpose of the project is to prevent access of illegal campers that have caused considerable damage to natural resources of the Pismo Lake Property of Pismo State Beach. The primary project activity will consist of the installation of two sections of fence at the Southern section of the Pismo Lake Property. Section A chain link fence will parallel 4th Street and connect with the Pismo Beach Motel 6 Fence. An 8-foot wide gate will be installed on Section A fence to allow State Parks staff to access the property. Section B no-climb fence will connect with the Oxford Suites Inn fence. Oxford Suites property owners have given State Parks permission to install the no-climb fence on their property.
The damage has included the cutting of willow and oak trees (some as big as 8-10 inches in diameter), hundreds of willow and oak tree limbs, and other native vegetation. The illegal campers also constructed open pit toilets and large scale trash dumps as big as 20 feet in diameter and 3-4 feet deep. The campers also abandoned materials that were imported to construct dwellings. Recent operations to restore and clean the area required extensive resources, time, and money to remove 43 tons of garages. Without these two sections of fence to keep illegal campers out of the property, daily enforcement will be required to remove people, equipment, and trash.
Project activities consists the construction of an appurtenant structure (fence).
