This project initially funded a study related to developing a wetlands mitigation facility on a portion of the Pleasure House Point site acquired by the City. The study will evaluate the merits of such a facility and outline the process for establishment and development of the mitigation facility.

Current Status and Progress
The City's consultant, Langley & McDonald, Inc., is working on establishing a wetlands mitigation bank on the Pleasure House Point property. The Interagency Review Team (IRT) has determined that the proposed mitigation bank is feasible based on the Final Prospectus, which was developed in 2014. Coordination with State and Federal agencies continues as the Mitigation Banking Instrument (MBI) is being developed. Once the MBI is approved by the IRT, permitting, final design and construction can commence. A draft of the MBI has already been submitted and presented to the IRT for review and approval. Comments on the MBI have been received from the IRT and the document will be resubmitted to address those comments. A project briefing was given on May 4th at the Ocean Park Civic League meeting. Based on community feedback at that meeting the parking area footprint has been reduced to avoid and minimize impact to existing trees. Construction is anticipated to begin in late 2018.
