On December 6, EBCNPS submitted comments for the Bay Bridge Gateway Park NOP. A copy of the NOP can be viewed at this address: http://baybridgegatewaypark.com/pdf/NOP-BATA_10-30-13.pdf.

EBCNPS’s main concerns  with this project are related to the increased access and restoration proposed for Radio Beach. The beach and its adjacent dune habitat provide habitat for several rare plant species. We are hopeful that the eventual plans for this area include phased restoration and effective protection for the dune habitat to ensure that any increased access via a new trail system does not degrade the ecosystem.

EBCNPS plans to continue to follow this ongoing project and any updates will be posted here.
