NAME OF APPLICANT:  City of Slidell – Recreation Department ℅ J.V. Burkes & Associates, ATTN: Barbara Zelenka, 1805 Shortcut Highway, Slidell, Louisiana, 70458.


LOCATION OF WORK:  Near the corner of Howze Beach Road and Spartan Drive at Fritichie Park in Slidell, Louisiana, Saint Tammany Parish, as shown on the enclosed drawings.


Latitude: 30.246/Longitude: -89.776; Hydrologic Unit Code: 08090201 – Liberty Bayou-Tchefuncte River


CHARACTER OF WORK:  Clear, grade, excavate, and deposit fill to construct a dog park and additional recreational trails in Fritchie Park.  The dog park and associated walking paths will be constructed primarily in uplands and tie into crushed limestone paths that will extend through 0.64 acres of pine flatwood wetlands.  The applicant proposes a 10-foot right-of-way for the 6-foot wide limestone walking path.  The remaining wooded wetlands surrounding the walking path (1.6 acres) would be selectively thinned and underbrushed to increase park safety and aesthetics.  Pine saplings and herbaceous vegetation would be cut by hand and hauled off.  Mature oaks and pine trees will be avoided.  


     The original permit authorization for Fritchie Park included a 5.43 acre walking path around the existing pond.  The applicant also agreed to purchase 5.5 acres of compensatory mitigation credits to compensate for the impacts associated with the project.  Of the original 5.43 acres permitted for the walking path, 0.44 acres were constructed to the east and south of the pond.  The applicant proposes to apply a portion of the remaining mitigation credits (approximately 5 acres) to offset the proposed 0.64 acres of impacts associated with this permit modification.
