UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay - Residential Sound Reduction Program for Helicopter Operations
Document Type
SBE - Subsequent EIR
Present Land Use
The project site is on land that is presently zoned for Mission Bay commercial, industrial (including research and development) and retail (MB C-I). The site is controlled by the University of California and is part of the Mission Bay South Plan of Mission Bay Redevelopment Area. The project is consistent with current zoning.

Document Description
UCSF has developed a Residential Sound Reduction Program (RSRP) in consultation with the community to address the potential impact of helicopter noise from proposed operation of a helipad, a component of the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay project (the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay EIR was certified in September 2008). Under the proposed RSRP, and subject qualifications, funds will be provided to residential property owners within the redrawn 95 dB SENSEL noise contour for the purpose of implementing sound reduction measures, which would include acoustical windows, acoustical doors, weatherstripping, insulating skylights, and/or ventilation improvements as determined on a case-by-case basis.
