Document Description
This application is for a Grading Abatement to restore the site to pre-graded conditions, with the exception of a serpentine bunch outcrop habitat that will not be restored, as recommended by a biologist. On an open space designated parcel, a dam (tributary of Bodfish Creek) was constructed with a pond of approximately 0.5 acres in area, and a berm to fill an approximately 5.6 acre capacity, according to the grading violation report. To restore the site to natural contours, the grading abatement includes an excavation totaling 7,912 cubic yards of cut, and 3,629 cubic yards of fill, and dewatering the dam to restore the site to pre-graded condition. No trees will be removed for this restoration work. A tree protection plan will be implemented to ensure that an existing oak woodland habitat is protected. A ranch road was graded without permits through a serpentine habitat which will remain in its existing condition.
