East Cliff Drive Parkway and Pleasure Point Park  / JLJA completed design and development of the County’s East Cliff master plan, as well as detailed construction drawings and specifications for a 3,090-foot long segment of the popular bluff-top pathway and park. Project scope included redesigned circulation with an emphasis on pedestrian safety and bicycle lane improvement, a new irrigation system, paving and lighting upgrades, new site furnishings, native coastal planting and landscape restoration, and interpretive elements highlighting the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The sensitive bluff-top site required site-specific integration with recently completed cliff-stabilization plans to deal with past erosion and prevent future loss, while blending into the natural surroundings and complying with California Coastal Commission Requirements. JLJA facilitated numerous community meetings to reach consensus on design and implementation.
