Santa Fe Dam Swim Beach Restroom #3 Improvement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Restroom Building #3 is a large restroom building that serves as one of the primary facilities for the Swim Beach and is very heavily used during peak summer season. Due to aging infrastructure, such as sewer lines built without sand traps, the facility is often shut down for service creating an extreme inconvenience for park patrons. The structure was built in 1977 with a rustic, craftsman-style gable roof and river stone wall cladding. Due to its age, the Department will complete a historic assessment of the facility to determine its architectural significance. Depending on the outcome of the historic assessment, the proposed Project scope will include either the demolition of the existing building and replacement with a prefabricated restroom building with greater user capacity and new utility connections, or as an alternative, the complete interior remodeling of the existing building to meet current codes and clearances, upgrade existing utilities and adjust the quantity of restroom fixtures. The prefabricated building, if needed, will be procured through a County purchase order. In addition to the restroom building, the Project scope will also include related utility upgrades, sitework, landscaping, and related improvements.
