Shore public walkways
For zoning lots developed within Parcels 1, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8, a shore public walkway shall be provided in the location designated on Map 6 in the Appendix to this Chapter. The applicable provisions of Section 62-53 (Requirements for Shore Public Walkways) and Section 62-60 (DESIGN REQUIREMENTS FOR WATERFRONT PUBLIC ACCESS AREAS), inclusive, shall apply except as modified in this Section:
(a) the circulation and access provisions of paragraph (a) of Section 62-62 (Design Requirements for Shore Public Walkways and Supplemental Public Access Areas) shall be modified as follows:
(1) the required circulation path within a shore public walkway shall be provided at a minimum elevation of 5 feet, 6 inches above the shoreline, except that such requirement need not include portions of a circulation path that slope downward to meet the elevation of an existing publicly accessible sidewalk;
(2) where secondary circulation paths are provided, such paths may count as a part of the required circulation path for satisfying the locational requirement of being within 10 feet of the shoreline for at least 20 percent of the length of such shoreline. However, such secondary circulation paths may comply with the paving requirements of paragraph (a)(2) of Section 62-656; and
(3) where a shore public walkway is on a zoning lot that is adjacent to a waterfront zoning lot without a shore public walkway, the portion of the circulation path that terminates at the common zoning lot line shall be located within 40 feet of the shoreline;
(b) the minimum width of the screening buffer pursuant to paragraph (c)(2)(ii) of Section 62-62 (Design Requirements for Shore Public Walkways and Supplemental Public Access Areas) shall be four feet. No screening buffer shall be required where there is a pathway connecting a required circulation path towards a publicly accessible sidewalk or entry to a commercial or community facility use; and
(c) the grade level of required planting areas pursuant to paragraph (d)(2) of Section 62-61 (General Provisions Applying to Waterfront Public Access Areas) shall be increased to no more than three feet higher or lower than the adjoining level of the pedestrian circulation path.
