Preserving Public Access (22/23-SD-10)
The North Beach Day Use Parking Lot (North Lot) at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and State Beach (Reserve) has been identified as being vulnerable to projected rates of sea level rise, which will increase the frequency and severity of coastal flooding in this area. The project proposes reclaiming a portion of the parking lot area for a nature-based shoreline protection system, restoring approximately 1-acre of native habitat, improving water quality by replacing pavement with permeable pavers and bioswales, improving the inlet hydrology, reinforcing parking lot access by replacing a failed culvert and improving tidal flows below McGonigle Drive, adding an interpretive trail, improving lifeguard facility, updating underground utilities to comfort station and extending to lifeguard facility. This is a project that has been identified within the Los Penasquitos Lagoon Enhancement Plan (2021) (SCH: 2017121036) and it consistent with its objectives. The plan’s implementation will be critical to improving the health of the lagoon and absorbing the effects of sea level rise.
