The following action items were developed during a meeting on November 27, 2018:
County to finalize easements and send to City attorney for review.
The State Archeologist quoted a ballpark of cost of $45,000 – $75,000 for an archeological study for the guardrail areas. The County agreed to cover this cost. The County also agreed to arrange for a study, and to pay for the additional study, in the area that the Trails Committee proposed to construct a Boardwalk along Oceanview Drive from Highway 101 to the State Park. The Trails Committee provided information on the exact areas in need of study.
The study is likely to occur in late January or February 2019.
804 Trail Improvements
- The Trails Committee expressed a desire to have surface material on the trail that could be compacted for more stability. The County agreed to find an appropriate surface material at their expense.
- The Trails Committee spoke about improving signage along the trail, including educational, wayfinding, and distance signage. The County agreed to use the 804 Mitigation Funds to provide signage.
- The Trails Committee asked about the possibility of having viewing decks at the park at W 7th Street and Oceanview Drive and by the property on Oceanview Drive where the pump house is located. A member of the Trails Committee will draw a rendering of the decks and the City Manager and County will explore using the 804 Mitigation Funds for this purpose.
804 Trail from Marine Drive to Aqua Vista
The County owns the two lots between Marine Drive and Aqua Vista where the 804 Trail easement crosses. The County has asked the City for ideas on the best use for these properties, while maintaining the Trail easement. Some ideas posed were building affordable housing and selling the properties with the proceeds being g added to the Mitigation Fund.
City Planner Larry Lewis has provided renderings for what could be built on each lot with current code setback requirements. The lot on Marine Drive could have a building footprint of approximately 1800 square feet and the lot on Aqua Vista could have a 2450 square foot building footprint.
