Award Winner: Santa Paula California Chamber of Commerce Civic Beautification of the Year
Santa Paula is a unique small community in that it has an airport and its own railroad line. The railroad station was built in the 1930’s and is a historic landmark. The site was generally undeveloped, except for some warehouses and packing plants nearby. Its location near the heart of town made this site a candidate for restoration. This project required designing the station platform in accordance with railroad standards. The project included a gazebo and park. The architect selected brick for the accent pavement areas, which included sidewalks adjacent to the street. A key element of the design of this project was design of ADA compliance and addressing the grade difference across the site. We developed a unique mountable curb to provide access to the original loading ramp and accommodate the sidewalk requirements.
