Avalon Hotel Application
The proposed Avalon project is located at 1201/1221 N Main Street in Highway Visitor Commercial zoning. The project proposes the merger of two parcels and development of approximately 46,490 SF of commercial use: a 65-room hotel (comprised of three 3-story buildings, with maximum height of 35 feet); Restaurant and Bar (both contained in one of the hotel buildings); Event Facility (in separate single-story detached structure); a parking lot for 75 vehicles; and associated infrastructure.
The project also includes a public access easement through the property, connecting CA Hwy 1 / N Main Street to the multi-use trail referred to as the Haul Road. This trail will be a constructed as a raised boardwalk through wetland buffers with interpretive panels. The project includes restoration activities of wetland and wetland buffers, including the following: invasive plant removal; establishment of appropriate native plants; rip and amend compacted substrate in northern wetland buffer; contouring with handtools to improve hydrology onsite; and monitoring.
A Coastal Development Permit, Use Permit, Design Review and Parcel Merger are required. The proposed project also requires an environmental evaluation pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Reviewing agencies include: Sherwood Valley Band of Pomo, California Coastal Commission, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, California State Parks, California North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, Caltrans, Fort Bragg Fire Department, and Mendocino County Department of Planning and Building.
