Document Description
The project includes the construction of a bicycle and pedestrian trail, a pedestrian bridge, and two 12-inch storm drain outfalls as part of the development of a residential care home for seniors. The activities covered by this Agreement are limited to the following: 1. Trail – A new 14-foot wide bicycle and pedestrian trail will be constructed in the southern portion of the site, north of the stream. Site preparation for the trail will include grading and tree removal and will permanently impact approximately 0.094 acre of riparian habitat. 2. Pedestrian Bridge – A 15-foot wide and 60-foot long pedestrian bridge will be constructed as part of the trail near the southeast corner of the property. The bridge will span the creek and no abutments will be located within the bed or bank of the creek. Tree removal within riparian habitat will be required to construct the bridge. Construction of the bridge will permanently impact approximately 0.023 acre of riparian habitat and will shade approximately 0.005 acre of streambed habitat. 3. Storm Drain Outfalls – Two 12-inch diameter storm drain outfalls will be installed within the stream’s riparian habitat, draining into the stream. Outfall 1 will consist of 52 linear feet of 12-inch stormdrainpipe with a flared end section and riprap. Outlet 2 will consist of 38 linear feet of 12-inch storm drainpipe with a flared end section and riprap. A third storm drain outfall will also be installed outside of the stream’s riparian habitat; this outfall’s construction will not disturb the stream or its associated habitat and is not included in this Agreement. Installation of the storm drain outfalls will permanently impact approximately 0.003 acre of riparian habitat. A total of 13 trees, including one (1) Fremont cottonwood (Populus fremontii), two (2) blue oaks (Quercus douglasii), four (4) valley oaks (Quercus lobata), and six (6) interior live oaks (Quercus wislizeni) will be removed from the riparian habitat associated with the stream. No in-stream work will be required for the installation of the above-mentioned activities. A variety of construction equipment such as a backhoe, bulldozer, grader, and dump trucks will be used.
