Anatolia Open Space Multi-Use Trail

Rancho Cordova, California

Foothill Associates designed a 1.6-mile long Class I bike trail in conjunction with preserved open space for the Anatolia neighborhood of Rancho Cordova, California. The trail runs along a drainage channel in the development. Landscape improvement plans included irrigation and planting along the south drainage channel and erosion control planting in the preserve area adjacent to the bike trail. The plans were prepared in conformance with City of Rancho Cordova and Cordova Recreation and Park District standards and the Sunrise-Douglas Vernal Pool Preserve Operation and Maintenance Plan. We also prepared construction documents for a .4-mile extension of the trail passing through an existing venal pool preserve to connect with a park in an adjacent development. As part of the conceptual design process, we worked closely with USFWS staff to address their concerns and minimize potential impacts to wetlands. We provided biological monitoring during construction for the City of Rancho Cordova and oversight of the contractor’s biologist as well as ongoing preserve monitoring.
