SELGHQ Tower Demo, Temporary LGHQ Structure and Fence (09-10-SD-33)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project consists of demolishing the existing Lifeguard Headquarters (LGHQ) and reconstructing a temporary LGHQ and relocating an existing fence. This project is considered an emergency due to massive bluff erosion, which has undermined the tower rand made it unsafe for its intended use. The LGHQ will be taken apart by a demo contractor. All the utilities, including water, waste, electrical, plumbing, and IT will be relocated by way of previously excavated utility trenches to new facility. The concrete slab and foundation will be left intact. The new LGHQ will be constructed from new materials and materials salvaged from the old tower. The new tower will be placed 21' from the west face of the bluff and 46' away from the south end of the bluff. A metal container 8' wide x 30' long will be placed at the most eastern side of the bluff and serve as the base of the new tower. The observation deck will be built on the south end of the storage of the storage container and will match existing facilities in the park. An Emergency Coastal Permit will be issued for this project.
