Marshall, CA - California State Parks is hosting a community information session to share facility accessibility improvement plans for the scenic and popular Millerton Point area of Tomales Bay State Park, Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.
The project is in the initial planning and early design phase. The scope of work will include installing accessible parking spaces, restroom improvements, a path of travel upgrade to a mile-long segment of the existing park road and road realignment in order to protect native bird nesting areas, and the bay’s wetlands.
Millerton Point has been identified as the best possible location for these upgrades given its generally flat terrain, open landscape, impressive views, visitor use patterns and parking. This session is an opportunity for park users, neighbors and the public to view proposed plans and improvements as they are being prepared for the environmental review process.
The project is part of a continuing statewide effort by California State Parks to improve the visitor experience and upgrade facilities in order to meet State and Federal accessibility standards.
The community information session will be held in the Pine Lodge at the Marconi Conference Center State Historic Park located on Highway 1, two miles south of Marshall, CA 94940.
