The Coastal Trail Project   

The City of Fort Bragg has been working for several years to complete the Fort Bragg Coastal Trail & Restoration project which will provide public access along the City’s coast for the first time in over a century. The construction project is funded with a $1.36M grant from the State Coastal Conservancy, a $4.8M grant from the Statewide Park Program (Prop 84 funding), and a $348K grant from Caltrans. The Coastal Trail project will be constructed in 2014 and 2015.

Phase I – Now Completed!
Granite Construction, the project contractor, began construction of Phase I of the Coastal Trail project in early August, 2014. This phase of the project will create 4.5 miles of trail on 82 acres of the old Georgia-Pacific mill site, restore over 20 acres of land to its former natural beauty, and provide three restrooms, two parking lots, 14 interpretive signs, two welcome plazas, and several unique benches designed by local artists.

Phase II
The second phase of the Coastal Trail will provide a half mile of trail on a ten-acre site near the Georgia Pacific mill pond, five acres of restoration, benches, interpretive panels and stairs to the beach at Fort Bragg Landing, and is currently in the planning process.

TS Monk Sextet

 

Have you heard of the Brother Thelonious  Belgian Style Abbey Ale, produced by our own North Coast Brewing Company?  North Coast Brewing Company is proud to partner with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz in support of Jazz education. The Brewery makes a donation to the Institute for every bottle of Brother Thelonious Belgian Style Abbey Ale sold.  If that were not enough, here’s the kicker….To celebrate the Grand Opening of the recently refurbished Sequoia Room at the North Coast Brewery Pub, we welcome the TS Monk Sextet, led by the son of the jazz legend.  Two shows per night are available, a dinner show at 6:00P and a late show at 8:30P, Friday March 6th and Saturday, March 7th.  Book your tickets online now at Brown Paper Tickets or call 707-964-3400.  Food and beverages minimums will apply for these special shows.

Even if you can’t make this memorable show, be sure to check out the calendar of upcoming events in this intimate and stylish venue.  You can also keep up with jazz in Fort Bragg by checking out Doug Moody’s new show on Sunday nights at 7:00P on KOZT-The Coast.  Yes, we know that the Mendocino coast is famous for rock-n-roll, but enjoy jazz in Fort Bragg, courtesy of North Coast Brewing Company!
