Document Description
The County has a concrete pathway between 5’-6’wide that leads from the north end of the Wavecrest Drive right-of-way and parking area to the beach. The pathway travels in a west/southwest direction leading from the north of the existing residence at 120 Wavecrest Drive to just west of the residence below the face of bluff. The concrete pathway was damaged where it meets the ocean, by the 2011 Tsunami. The pathway has continued to deteriorate and is in need of repair and partial replacement. The County proposes to remove the last forty feet of the existing ramp and replace it with steps with treads that are 2.5 feet deep and with 7-inch risers. The extra depth to the stair tread will make it easier for more people to use. The ramp will be bordered on both sides with new concrete sidewalls and handrails. Special studies prepared for the project address sea level rise, tsunami runup, bluff retreat, cultural resources, biological resources, wetlands, and visual impacts. Mitigation measures are proposed to address potential impacts to wetlands, biological resources, and cultural resources.
