Funded largely by a grant award of nearly $8 million from the State of California Natural Resources Department, along with Measure Xrevenue, this exciting project:
Builds a new, wider staircase from N. Pacific St. to the sand, including landscaped viewing areas
Constructs 14 new restrooms
Builds a new sewer lift station. This moves wastewater from the new restrooms and residences along The Strand at the lower elevation to join the utilities on Pacific Street. Sewer work along The Strand was also completed.
Remodels the 1930s-era beach restrooms to serve as a new Police Department Substation
Constructs a building to feature north-facing storefronts for public services and store beach maintenance equipment on the south side
Installs pavers, seating, and trees in the plaza area.
The project is anticipated to be complete by Fall/Winter 2021.
