Commission approves plan for Fletcher Cove Community Center renovation
Construction contract could be awarded Wednesday
As expected, the California Coastal Commission approved Solana Beach’s Fletcher Cove Community Center renovation project on the consent calendar at this morning’s meeting in Santa Rosa.
Lee McEachern, the district regulatory supervisor for the San Diego office, said although the project involves a nonconforming structure, it passed the commission because the building’s footing and foundation would not be altered.
“It wasn’t an easy approval, we gave it a very rigorous review,” she said. “They’re not increasing the size and not changing the foundation. They’re just renovating the existing structure, so what they’re doing, and they have geotechnical information to support this, is not making the situation any worse than currently exists. They’re not increasing the degree of nonconformity.”
The Solana Beach City Council plans to award an $85,000 construction contract for phase one of the renovations at Wednesday’s meeting. That part of the project will involve constructing Americans with Disability’s Act complaint facilities, including a parking lot, on the outside of the center. That item is also on the consent calendar.
