The delicate marine environment of the lagoon could be threatened by many aspects of this proposed demolition and redevelopment project.
For example, there could be a risk of increased contaminated surface water runoff from project grounds into the lagoon. Moreover, there is a risk that the partially subterranean parking structure may flood during significant rain events, resulting in further discharges of contaminated water into the lagoon. Such surface water runoff and discharges could impact the water quality of the lagoon and its sensitive ecosystem.
We are also concerned that the proposed new construction along the lagoon would create additional ground sloughing and settlement that could negatively impact the stormwater retention capability of the lagoon, the depth of water at the property line, and the stability of existing buildings along the lagoon.
We also believe that this proposed demolition and redevelopment project could pose significant flood control issues for Belvedere, as well as for all residences on the lagoon.
