The proposed project involves the repair and replacement of a portion of the existing wood deck located at the San Diego Yacht Club (SDYC) in the City of San Diego. The existing wood deck has two levels, an upper level deck and lower level deck that are located on the southwestern-portion of the SDYC leasehold. Currently, the joists and stringers (wood supports) for the existing upper level deck are aged and in need of repair and replacement. The proposed project would remove and replace the existing deck boards in order to access and replace the existing age wood supports. Overall, the wood deck would be identical in size, material, and location as the existing wood deck.
The project is determined to be categorically exempt pursuant to California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Sections 15301 (Existing Facilities) and/or 15302 (Replacement or Reconstruction) and Sections 3.a (9) and/or 3.b (2) of the District's Guidelines for Compliance with CEQA because it is the repair and replacement of an existing deck that would involve no expansion of use beyond that previously existing, would be located on the same site, and have substantially the same purpose and capacity as the structure being replaced.
