Document Description
The project consists of adoption and implementation of the Wharf Master Plan and construction of two projects recommended in the Master Plan within the next two years. The two proposed near-term projects are relocation of the Wharf entry gate and construction of the East Promenade for pedestrian use. The Wharf Master Plan includes: policies; recommendations for expansion of the wharf for public access and construction of Improvements and three new buildings; structural wharf improvements; circulation and parking improvements; and design standards for new buildings. The recirculated Partial Draft EIR adds a new recreation chapter that analyzes impacts related to recreational facilities and uses, including consistency with plans and cumulative recreational impacts, and adds minor revisions to the Project Description chapter.
