The Quarry Parcel is a former mine, and the Eastern Parcel is undeveloped. 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. The Quarry site is also located within the Coastal Zone Boundary, as specified in the General Plan. The City of Pacifica Draft General Plan Update designates most of the Quarry Parcel as Conservation, with the exception of a portion of the Quarry Pit, which is proposed to be designated Visitor-Serving Commercial. The entire Eastern Parcel is proposed to be designated Visitor-Serving Commercial.
The proposed project would include reclamation of the Rockaway Quarry site, including both the Quarry and Eastern Parcels. 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 Parcel into a safe condition, installation of new drainage infrastructure, and construction of improved trails. The Eastern Parcel would be reclaimed to include a complex of four tiered seasonal wetlands totaling 1.55 acres and a 0.20-acre California red-legged frog (CRLF) pond.
