Document Description
The project involves fireworks display events (events) in and around San Diego (SD) Bay and the Imperial Beach (IB) Oceanfront for a period of ten years. Events include the Big Bay Boom and other smaller events operated by the District's tenants. Typically, fireworks associated with these events are detonated from piers, flight decks, and/or barges located adjacent to and in the waters of SD Bay and the IB Oceanfront. Spectators for each of the events typically gather in public parks and public areas surrounding the event locations, utilizing the surrounding roadway network and public parking facilities. Approx. 50 events take place or are allowed to take place in and around SD Bay and the Pacific Ocean near IB annually. The project assumes an annual growth rate of approximately 2% in the number of events to occur in and around SD Bay and the Pacific Ocean near IB.
