Title

RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING APPROVAL AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE BRIGHTON BEACH MINI MASTER PLAN.

 

Body

CITY PROPOSAL:

RESOLVED, that the proper city officials hereby approve the Brighton Beach Mini-Master Plan, attached hereto as exhibit A, and authorize implementation of the plan as funding becomes available.

 

Statement of Purpose

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution authorizes approval of the Brighton Beach Mini-Master Plan and implementation thereof as funding becomes available. The purpose of the plan is to accommodate and support current and desired uses of the park.

 

The reopening of the Council approved 2012 Brighton beach Mini-Master Plan was intended to make appropriate changes that adopt a more resilient park design in the face of climate change. Starting in 2017, significant shoreline erosion has necessitated the study of modifying the location of the current road and trail further from the shoreline. In addition, a network of informal parking areas and trails exacerbates a dangerous mix of users and creates informal routes to the lakeshore that are unstable, not accessible and contribute to further bank erosion. Re-opening of the Mini-Master Plan aims to address the following goals:

 

1.                     Reduce City infrastructure within the DNR 10 foot wave zone of the shoreline

2.                     Increase circulation safety for all park users - vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian

3.                     Increase shoreline resiliency by formalizing trails, access points and parking areas to minimize shoreline erosion

4.                     Provide high quality experience for recreational access to the lake and adjacent green space

 

The planning process included a public open house, online public survey, and two-week public comment period. The Parks and Recreation Commission approved the plan 6/1 at their July 10, 2019 meeting.
