The proposed project involves development of a dry boat storage facility on two separate, currently vacant properties at Grand Caribe Isle North along, and on both the east and west sides of, Caribe Cay Boulevard North in Coronado. Development features planned for the two properties include: new fencing, new landscaping, streetscape improvements, and a gravel base with decomposed granite paving, as follows. The project will not involve soil disturbance or grading. The proposed project also involves issuance of a sublease to the Coronado Cays Yacht Club for the purpose of public access and open space.
Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to commence in the summer of 2015 and take approximately two months to complete. It is anticipated that, at the height of construction, the proposed project will generate an average of approximately 16 ADT. Furthermore, the applicant is responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regulating hazards and hazardous materials, noise, and stormwater.
The project is determined to be Categorically Exempt pursuant to California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) because it is the development and renewed operation of a short-term dry boat storage facility that would involve negligible expansion of use beyond that previously existing, would have no permanent effects on the environment, and would not involve the removal of mature, scenic trees. Sections 3.a (3) and (7), 3.c (2), and/or 3.d (5) of the District's CEQA Guidelines.
