Reconstruction of the stairway not only provides the community access to the coast, but provides for protection of the bluff, as utilizing a stairway discourages people from scaling up and down and hence damaging the coastal bluff. A newly installed wood bench on the lower landing of the reconstructed stairway encourages the pubic to enjoy and appreciate the coastal area. Also, removal of immediately surrounding non-native landscaping and installation of native landscaping, which was part of this project, helps to enhance the ecological integrity of the coastal habitats.
