Services provided pursuant to this Agreement are intended solely for the use and benefit of the Surfrider Foundation and Environmental Defense Center. No other person or entity shall be entitled to rely on the services, opinions, recommendations, plans or specifications provided pursuant to this agreement without the express written consent of Philip Williams & Associates, Ltd., 500 Kearny St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94108 For planning purposes we have provided estimates of construction costs to allow cost comparison of alternatives. These cost estimates are intended to provide an approximation of total project costs appropriate for the preliminary level of design. These cost estimates are considered to be approximately -15% to +30% accurate, and include a 25% contingency to account for project uncertainties (such as final design, permitting restrictions and bidding climate). These estimates are subject to refinement and revisions as the design is developed in future stages of the project.

1. PROJECT SUMMARY This project provides a conceptual design of a park reconfiguration alternative at Goleta Beach County Park in Santa Barbara, California. The premise behind this project alternative is to reconfigure the infrastructure and park facilities to allow for natural shoreline processes and realignment. Recent scientific research has shown that the coastal processes operating at Goleta Beach are highly variable and have resulted in fluctuations in beach width over the last 75 years. These changes appear to be caused by cyclic climate phenomena that regulate the direction of waves and storms. Recent research findings also provide insight into an erosion wave that propagated along coast causing the recent erosion at Goleta Beach before migrating down coast affecting Arroyo Burro, Shoreline Park, and currently Ledbetter Beach. This alternative attempts to provide a new vision of Goleta Beach that functions more naturally in
