In response to public comments on the draft environmental impact report, including a Town of Ross survey and letter from the Town of Ross indicating strong local preference for Alternative 1, the District staff will recommend adoption of Alternative 1 instead of the proposed project.
Alternative 1 will not include modifications to Frederick Allen Park. Alternative 1 includes the following elements:
- Fish ladder removal with grading and streambank stabilization in Unit 4 to transition to the concrete channel in Unit 3
- Taller floodwalls in Units 3 and 2
- Stormwater pump station
- New larger fish pools in the concrete channel
- Removal of the concrete channel walls and creation of salt marsh habitat downstream of Stadium Way
Alternative 1 meets most project objectives and provides flood risk reduction as described in the Draft environmental impact report.
