Document Description
East Elliot Community Plan Amendment, Amendment of the Progress Guide and General Plan, Rezoning of the Site to IH-2-1 (Industrial), Amendment to Planned Development Permit/Site Development Permit, Approval of a Consolidated Parcel Map, Public Right of Way and Easement Vacations, Grant Deed, and Roadway Encroachment Permit for the continued development of Sycamore Landfill. Under the Master Plan, the landfill footprint would increase by approximately 167 feet, to a maximum hieght of 1,050 feet AMSL. This would result in an increase in municipal solid waste (MSW) capacity from approximately 71 million cubic yards (mcy) under the current plan, to 151 mcy. Under the Master Plan, the average daily waste tonnage is proposed to increase from the current 3,965 tons per day (tpd) to a maximum of 13,000 tpd, anticipated to occur in 2025, with the increase proposed in a series of steps, depending on when and at what rate solid waste is generated in the region. To facilitate the expansion, new ancillary facilities, including larger sedimentation basins, a larger scales area, a maintenance area, and a new administrative office would be constructed south of the landfill. The project site is generally bound by MCAS Miramar to the north, the eastern ridge line of Little Sycamore Canyon to the west. The project is within the East Elliot Community Planning Area. In addition, new transmission line structures would be built within the existing SDG&E transmission line easement areas.
