The City of Rancho Palos Verdes will be completing the site improvements at Lower Point Vicente originally approved for the Point Vicente Interpretative Center (PVIC) expansion project. The site improvements consist of the following:
- Added and reconfigured parking spaces
- Driveway realignment
- New and improved decomposed granite trails
- On-site lighting (including the parking lot)
- On-site drainage improvements (including water quality measures)
- Wayfinding signs
- Minor site grading to
In order to accommodate the above improvements, earth movement will be needed to prepare the site for construction. The earth movement will be conducted in accordance to a Work Plan approved by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) that is consistent with the previous lead remediation plan.
The site improvements at Lower Point Vicente were not completed by the City at the time the expansion to PVIC was completed because of the lack of budget resources. Unrelated to its proposed building and improvements at Lower Point Vicente, the Annenberg Foundation is funding the site improvements at Lower Point Vicente as a charitable gift to the City.
Prior to commencing construction, the City will complete an environmental assessment pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for consideration by the Planning Commission along with a revision to the Condition Use Permit, Coastal Permit, and Grading Permit for the PVIC expansion project. More information, including project plans and related documents, will posted on this site when made available.
The City’s project planner overseeing the Parking Lot and Site Improvements at Lower Point Vicente is Principal Planner Ara Mihranian. He may be contacted at (310) 544-5228 or by email at email@example.com.
