Description of Project

This proposal involves improving an existing nonconforming gravel parking lot that is located at the junction of the South Gorge Trail and the Sandifur pedestrian bridge. The gravel parking lot is routinely filled to capacity and this work will pave and stripe the parking lot, bringing it into compliance with current development regulations. In addition, the portion of the project closest to the river will include a trail segment connecting that portion of the South Gorge trail constructed in 2019 to the existing Sandifur pedestrian bridge. Finally, an informal river access trail just north of the parking lot and east of Sandifur bridge will be formalized by way of a concrete path form the proposed trail northward, terminating just above the ordinary high water mark. The subject parcel is quite large and divided by right-of-way, but the triangular portion in the center of the photo to the right is the location of the parking lot. The square parcel to the west is proposed trail location.
