PROJECT ADDRESS3420, 3500, 4401 and 4500 Arroyo Seco Road
The applicant, City of Pasadena, Water and Power Department, has submitted a Conditional Use Permit application to allow the repair and replacement of facilities within the Arroyo Seco Canyon Area that were damaged or destroyed by Station Fire-related events of 2009. The improvements will also allow the increased utilization of surface water rights held by the City, and will improve water quality in the canyon; improve biological habitats; restore hydrological function and fish passage; and improve ecosystem health through the following enhancements:
1) Naturalize the Arroyo Seco streambed; 2) Remove exposed portions of existing infrastructure designed for sediment removal; 3) Restore and improve the intake facilities; 4) Expand recharge operations by creating additional spreading basins; 5) Reduced barriers to fish passage; 6) Enhance recreational facilities; 7) Build a new restroom facility; and 8) Improve stormwater quality through a smaller decomposed granite parking lot.
A Conditional Use Permit is required for any recreational improvements within the OS Zoning District. In addition to the improvements, a total of 17 protected trees are proposed to be removed in order to accommodate the proposed improvements.
