Document Description
The project involves the construction of 350,000 sf of new industrial buildings of which 13.6 acres of airport property will be leased for a non-aeronautical use to Graphic Packaging International. This 13.6 acre property surrounds a 6.5 acre property currently supporting an existing GPI facility and is part of the Land Release Request submitted by the City to the Federal Aviation administration. Once the 13.6 acres receives a non-aeronautical land use designation, with FAA approval, the 13.6 acres of property will be leased to GPI at fair market value to facilitate a planned 350,000 sf plant expansion, 282,325 sf of which is on the 13.6 acre lease parcel. Entitlements for the planned plant expansion project will be subject to the City's review process, which will include the applicable environmental review, and will include any applicable City land development regulations. The project includes filling a .06 acre seasonal wetland swale. Filling the swale requires a Nationwide 29 Permit issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers under Section 404 of the U.S. Clean Water Act and Section 401 Certification issued by the CA RWQB.
