Document Description
The Project proposes to construct and operate Via Princessa Park on an approximately 34-acre area of City-owned land, which would include athletic fields with sports field lighting, pickleball courts (also with lighting), playground equipment and other recreational facilities, such as walking paths, shade structures, picnic areas, public art, and education and monumentation signage. Additionally, the Project would provide parking, park access, and other amenities and improvements, including alterations to the existing Via Princessa Metrolink Station parking lot, potential maintenance-level improvements to the Metrolink Station platform and facilities, construction of a pedestrian and vehicle (restricted access) railroad undercrossing (including removal of the existing at-grade pedestrian crossing), installation of an additional culvert under the railroad, replacement of an existing storm drain line, construction of a new restroom building with associated utilities, improvements to the existing restroom/office building located in the parking area, landscaping and irrigation improvements, and restoration of the existing Honby drainage channel. Additionally, a fourth lane may be added to Weyerhauser Way and modifications may be made to Via Princessa to accommodate a double-left turn lane into and/or out of Weyerhauser Way. In addition to recreational improvements, the Project would include a regional stormwater infiltration facility. Other Project civil and geotechnical design features include buried bank protection, a storm drain culvert extension, and channel restoration, as well as removal of an agricultural well.
