Reasons for Exemption
The City of San Diego conducted an Initial Study which determined that since the project will utilize the barge to access the construction site, the action would not result in impacts to any resources. Furthermore the project meets the criteria set forth in CEQA Section 15302 which allows for the replacement and reconstruction of existing structures where the new structure will be located on the same site, and where the exceptions listed in CEQA Section 15300.2 would not apply.
