  3. Scott’s Seafood Restaurant, Jack London Square, Oakland, Alameda County(First Review) [  172KB]
    The Design Review Board will conduct a review of Scott’s Jack London Seafood Inc. and the Port of Oakland’s proposed design for a replacement enclosure of the public pavilion, authorized for private use 20% (or 73 days) of the year, located on the east side of Scott’s Seafood Restaurant at the foot of Franklin Street, Jack London Square in the City Oakland, Alameda County. The project is located entirely within the Commission’s 100-foot-shoreline band jurisdiction, all of which is required public access. The project does not propose any new public access. Proposed improvements in the public access area include: (1) replacing entirely removable canvas tent walls with permanent, partially retractable wall panels including three doors; (2) placing moveable planters around the periphery of the pavilion to protect the wall panels from vehicular damage; and (3) converting 255 square feet of public access to restaurant storage.

  4. Bottoms Property Residential Development by Shea Homes, Richmond, Contra Costa County (First Review) [  147KB] Exhibit
    The Design Review Board will conduct a review of Shea Homes’ proposed design for a 60-unit residential development and public access improvements at the Bottoms Property between Seacliff Drive and Canal Boulevard in the City of Richmond, Contra Costa County. The buildings would be constructed outside of the Commission’s jurisdiction, while some private patios, landscaping, walkways, an entry road, and public access improvements would be located within the 100-foot shoreline band jurisdiction. The project would result in new public access amenities and provide connections to the Bay Trail recently installed by the City of Richmond on the property. Proposed improvements include: (1) widening the existing sidewalk near the project entrance on Seacliff Drive for safer pedestrian and bicycle access to the trail; (2) installing traffic signs and a crosswalk where a new vehicle entrance is proposed along Canal Boulevard at the northwest corner of the site; (3) providing approximately 12 public access parking spaces at the adjacent Port of Richmond property; and (4) installing landscaping, two benches, an interpretive panel, and two trash cans along the shoreline.
