Document Description
This project consists of the removal of an Elderberry tree located on the west side of Calhoun St. in Old Town San Diego State historic Park. The removal of the tree is necessary for the placement of a transformer to supply electricity to the restored Cosmopolitan Hotel & Restaurant. SD&E has designed a new power grid that will supply a greater amount of power to the facility. The new power grid will work in conjunction with the existing transformer located north of the tree removal the new transformer is a large dark green box sitting on a 6" pad of precast concrete. Per standard policy, a biologist or cultural resource specialist will ensure avoidance of significant natural or cultural resources during project implementation.
