Waterfront Public Access Area

The provisions of Section 62-52 (Applicability of Waterfront Public Access Area Requirements) shall apply, except that no supplemental public access area, as set forth in Section 62-57 (Requirements for Supplemental Public Access Areas), shall be required. However, a shore public walkway and an upland connection must be provided as modified in this Section and shown on Maps 1, 5 and 6 in Appendix A of this Chapter.

(a)        Shore public walkway

The provisions of paragraph (a)(3) of Section 62-53 (Requirements for Shore Public Walkways) shall apply, except that the minimum width of a shore public walkway on shallow portions of a zoning lot set forth on such Section shall be modified to be no less than 35 feet.

If there is an existing building or other structure to remain on the zoning lot, the entire area between such existing building and the shoreline shall be entirely occupied by the shore public walkway, with a required circulation path of at least eight feet.

(b)        Upland connections

The requirement for a “transition area” within a Type 2 upland connection in paragraph (b)(2) of Section 62
561 (Types of upland connections) shall not apply. In addition, the minimum width requirement of 10 feet for the upland connection abutting such turnaround shall be modified to five feet, provided that the entire area of the vehicular turnaround is paved with the same paving material as the upland connection.
