The Conceptual Master Plan was a group project. Each member of the group had specific roles in the analysis, design, and presentation. My specific role was to look into land use, transportation, and site inventory. With that information, we collaborated on several designs. The one we chose was one that focused on creating "pocket ponds" to increase habitat value for valuable species like Red-legged frog, eliminate the use of a sea wall along the western edge and allow for the Laguna Salada to resume its original function as a brackish pond with immense habitat and aesthetic value, and to maximize playable aspects of the golf course without compromising environmental benefits. Thus the course was reduced from an 18 hole course to a 9 hole course. I was the principal designer for the paths, water shorelines, and new course allocations.
