Document Description
The Authority proposes to expand upon existing public access and recreation facilities at RCAN. In addition, the project would allow for year-round operational access to portions of the preserve seasonally inaccessible due to high waters at Llagas Creek. The proposed project would include the implementation of several new features in the project area to support public access and low intensity recreation and the Authority’s maintenance and patrol operations at RCAN. The primary project features would include the development of a bridge over Llagas Creek; seating areas with benches; and an Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) accessible pedestrian loop trail. Additional project features would include interpretive and wayfinding signage, cattle fencing, and revegetation of disturbed areas with native stockpiled soils onsite or an appropriate native seed mix.
