Restoration Alternative for the Arana Gulch Master Plan EIR

  • No bridge over Hagemann Gulch. Continued access from Agnes St. and the existing Harbor Road.

  • Handicapped access from Agnes Street and along the main meadow path that ends with an interpretive stop turnout, allowing people to see the beauty of the greenbelt, including floral and faunal species (especially raptors on the wing). Limit the width of this multi-use pathway to 4 feet.

  • Maintenance of the continuation of a non-paved pathway (available to pedestrians and bicyclists) from the handicapped interpretative turnout to a west turn toward Hagemann Gulch and the Eucalyptus heritage tree.

  • Maintenance of the perimeter path way (available to pedestrians and bicyclists) with restoration work to reduce and control erosion.

  • Elimination and restoration of the steep path from the Harbor road and signage to require use of either the north (up to Agnes St.) or the south pathways of the perimeter pathway.

  • Management for all native floral species of coastal meadow prairie habitats, especially any endangered or threatened species, including but not limited to:

    • Santa Cruz Tarplant
    • San Francisco popcorn flower
    • Point Reyes horkelia
    • Maple-leafed checkerbloom
    • Gairdner's yampah


  • Management for all native faunal species of coastal meadow prairie habitats, especially any endangered or threatened species, including but not limited to:

    • Double-crested Cormorant
    • Cooper's Hawk
    • Merlin
    • Sharp-shinned Hawk
    • Vaux's Swift
