Document Description
The project is located near the northeast corner of highway 78 and highway 79 in Santa Ysabel, County of San Diego. The project consists of the development of 6.55 acres for a Nature Center including the interpretive center building, a parking lot, a maintenance facility/volunteer pad (a concrete pad with room for a motor home and a patio) complex, and appurtenant outdoor facilities such as demonstration gardens, trails, and the like. The interpretive center building will consist of a combination of the following types of uses: office space, exhibit area, conference/banquet area, bathrooms, a lobby/entry plaza, and/or a covered patio. The site contains an existing groundwater well that would be retained. Permits from Caltrans would be obtained to access the site by a private road/driveway from highway 79. The project would be served by on site septic systems and groundwater from outside any water municipal district. Approx 1,000 ft of extension of sewer or water utilities may be required by the project.
