The project site is composed of two undeveloped areas: the Quarry Parcel and the Eastern Parcel. The Quarry Parcel is the site of a former mine. The City of Pacifica General Plan designates both parcels as Special Area and the sites are zoned Service Commercial (C-3) with Hillside Preservation District (HPD) overlay zone. Both parcels are also located within the Coastal Zone Boundary, as identified in the General Plan.
The proposed project would include reclamation of the Quarry site. The majority of the reclamation activity would occur on the Quarry Parcel, with minor site improvements such as grading for access roads and through truck traffic occurring on the Eastern Parcel. The project would involve earthwork to regrade the over steepened slopes of the former Quarry into a safe condition, installation of new drainage infrastructure, and construction of new unpaved trails. The Eastern Parcel would be reclaimed to include the restoration of a 0.60-acre seasonal wetland and a 0.15-acre California Red-Legged Frog pond. Implementation of the proposed project would require City approval of the following entitlements: certification of the Rockaway Quarry Reclamation Plan Project EIR and Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, Quarry Use Permit, and Heritage tree removal authorization.
