The bridgehead area will provide a beautiful entrance to Crockett through the efforts of the Committee to keep it clean and its 5,300 drought-tolerant plants healthy and properly maintained. The chain link fence and barbed wire along Pomona will be removed, and cracks in the asphalt path through the bridgehead will be sealed. Invasive species and weeds will be removed periodically. Plants that die will be quickly removed, with possible replacement by other species. Patches of wildflowers and areas of butterfly habitat plants will be developed over time in cooperation with local organizations. The capture and reuse of storm water for irrigation will be explored over time, as well as the possible use of reclaimed water from the adjacent wastewater treatment plant. Solar powered lighting along the public path through the bridgehead area will be installed.
A small museum dedicated to bridgebuilding will be developed along Pomona in the bridgehead area. This will feature the Alfred Zampa Memorial Bridge and other bay area bridges along with the ironworkers and others who built them. The museum will be built by the Alfred Zampa Memorial Bridge non-profit organization, at no cost to Crockett CSD, on land sub-leased to it by Crockett CSD. Over time, the museum may develop food, drink and souvenir concessions to help fund bridgehead maintenance.
Absent a revenue stream to fund routine maintenance and weed abatement, Crockett CSD will be unable to commit to perpetual maintenance of bridgehead property. To the extent that the bridgehead becomes more and more attractive, Crockett will be very pleased. To the extent that this area declines, however, Crockett will be very upset to watch hundreds or thousands of plants and trees wither with no irrigation or care while tall weeds take over. Complaints will then come quickly and be very loud. A way must be found for Crockett to intervene and protect this asset. Initial discussions will focus on the role of local organizations and volunteers with an assist from others required to perform community service.
