Document Description
Project plans involve the conversion of an underutilized public park into additional street parking and a bioretention basin along Canal Street. Development of the parking area requires the removal of all existing park infrastructure, removal of the sidewalk and associated structures along the north edge of Canal Street, and the excavation of 650 CY of existing asphalt, base rock, and native soils. The roadway would be widened to accommodate the 46 new parking spaces, including one ADA parking pad. Additionally, three new light poles, two picnic tables, a new wooden retaining wall, and a gravel driveway would be built. An approximately 841 square foot bioretention facility would be constructed immediately to the west of the western most parking space to compensate for the addition of impermeable surfaces to the project site.
