Cloisters Master Plan
To preserve scenic views and sensitive dune habitat, RRM Design Group created the Master Plan, design guidelines, and construction documents for an 84 acre, 120 lot residential coastal property in Morro Bay. The site fronts 22 acres of environmentally sensitive coastal dunes and wetlands, calling for comprehensive restoration, re-vegetation, and monitoring focused on eradicating invasive species and restoring native species (with special consideration to the threatened Western Snowy Plover, the indigenous Morro Bay Blue Butterfly, and its host plant, the dune lupine). The Plan includes interpretive exhibits, habitat fences, a boardwalk, and trails for coastal access. RRM Design Group coordinated all approvals and permits through the City, the California Department of Parks and Recreation, the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, and the California Department of Fish and Game.
