- Ortega Park Master Plan Revised MND
- The project consists of the Ortega Park Master Plan, including demolition of existing facilities and construction of a new swimming pool, wading pool, water slide, skate park, splash pad, sports courts, shade sails, sports field with synthetic turf, ping pong tables, cornhole, and buildings for restrooms and maintenance. On-site improvements such as fencing, parking, landscaping, dumpsters and related enclosures, and internal walkways are also proposed. Public art would remain a part of the project, as documentation of all existing murals would occur prior to any on-site grading or demolition. Five (5) existing murals are proposed for relocation on-site, three (3) existing murals would be recreated, and four (4) of the existing murals would be re-envisioned. Additional blank space for new murals is also proposed. All new murals would be consistent with a Mural Implementation Plan to ensure thematic consistency. Right-of-way improvements including street parking, parking medians, and sidewalk installation are proposed. Front setback modifications to allow parking within the front setbacks along both Ortega Street and Salsipuedes Street are required. Planning Commission review of select amenities for consistency with the “Community Buildings” and “Sports Facilities” park designations is required. The park is considered a Community Park (except the ballfields and related facilities), a Sports Facility (for the ballfields and related facilities only), and a Community Building (the Welcome House and pool) per City Council Resolution 17-074. The parcel is zoned P-R, with a General Plan designation of Parks and Open Space.
