In 1996, Gladstone Way residences experienced property damage from flooding events associated with Coleman Creek. The purpose of the proposed project is to clear vegetation that may be obstructing appropriate storm flow passage within Coleman Creek, and to support habitat restoration efforts within the riparian corridor. The work would involve thinning and trimming densely overgrown native willow and non-native Himalayan blackberry along a 100-foot section of the Coleman Creek stream channel while maintaining existing shade canopy (Project Site 1). Additional work involves clearing Himalayan blackberry that threatens to obstruct storm flow passage into a nearby culvert (Project Site 2). Selective thinning techniques would be used in limbing up mature trees,removingdown-wardgrowing branchesanddeadvegetationdebris tocreatea “tunneleffect” for storm flow passage. Himalayan blackberry canes would be cut at just above ground level and removed from the stream channel. Best management practices would be employed to ensure that there are no impacts resulting in soil disturbance or tree mortality.
