Phase 2 of Safe Trestles – an ideas competition that explores ways to create safe, low-impact access to Trestles – is complete. 5 teams were selected from Phase 1 to develop their designs over the summer while working with stakeholders - Architecture for Humanity, Surfrider, and San Onofre Foundation - local agencies, and the community towards low-impact solutions that serve both surfers and visitors to the beach, restore wetlands that have been damaged by the path, preserve and augment vistas, and offer education about the history of the site and the coastal environment.
The stakeholders will spend the coming weeks reviewing and evaluating the submissions based on the designers response to the program requirements. This phase of the competition is less about selecting a winner than continuing to generate ideas. We will evaluate the outcomes as well as the process. From this, the San Onofre Foundation will have the tools to evaluate the scope and potential future of Safe Trestles.
