Loch Lomond Recreation Area Use Study

City of Santa Cruz

BluePoint led this comprehensive Recreation Use Study for the City of Santa Cruz Water Department. Finding that visitor use had dropped substantially over the last few years, the Department commissioned BluePoint to assess facilities and to identify new uses and activities that would increase visitors and help make the Recreation Area economically self-sustaining.

The Study addresses this while balancing the protection of water resources and the development of recreation uses that are distinctive and in character with the lake, the environment, and the Water Department’s mission.

The project included extensive community engagement and a feasibility analysis of programs, operations and policy and facilities resulting in recommended improvements and the final plan.
