Document Description
The proposed project would involve installation of an exterior paging system by the Syska Hennessy Group on behalf of the San Diego Convention Center (Applicant) in the City of San Diego, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve installation of a maximum of thirty-two (32) speakers along the northern exterior walls of the San Diego Convention Center to improve announcements in areas of high pedestrian · traffic. Three (3) specifications options for the speakers are proposed. However, the maximum dimensions of individual speakers would be eleven (11) inches (in.) tall by thirteen (13) in. wide by 13.5 in. deep. Additional improvements include installation of two (2) dedicated power circuits and amplifiers in wall-mounted cabinets, connections of new speakers to existing fiber optic infrastructure, new low-voltage speaker cabling, and conduit. All improvements would be integrated into existing structures and improvements. Construction of the proposed improvements is proposed to occur in Summer 2020 and would take approximately three months to complete. Due to its nature and limited scope, construction of the proposed project would generate a minor amount of vehicle trips and would require limited use of equipment. Therefore, significant impacts related to air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, and transportation and traffic are not anticipated to occur. Furthermore, the Applicant would be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, and stormwater.
