Document Description
A SITE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT for impacts to Environmentally Sensitive Lands for the project which will provide new hangar space and a concrete apron to accommodate five helicopters, parking and shelter for a single Heli tender and two fueling tender vehicles at Montgomery-Gibbs Executive Airport. The area of new hangar space will be approximately 32,000 SF, of which approx. 16,500 SF is existing disturbed and/or impervious area. The new hangar space includes a hangar support area for maintenance offices, overhaul, avionics and storage rooms. The new apron area will be approximately 65,000 SF of 5000 PSI concrete, of which approx. 9,300 SF is existing disturbed and/or impervious area. The project includes two above-ground fuel storage tanks, each with 12,000-gallon capacity (24,000 gallons total). This facility will support and accommodate 24-hour staffing that includes one battalion chief, two captains, two pilots, and four firefighters. The staging area for the project will be placed on existing paved and/or disturbed area, and is designed to be approximately 4,000 SF. Construction access to the site will be via the airport perimeter gate at 4302 Ponderosa Avenue, and an unnamed access road which leads directly to the site. The project will address any damages to the access road sustained from construction activities. The rehabilitation of the existing access road will include a two-inch overlay of asphalt material in any areas deemed necessary and will not impact any undisturbed areas. The project will require a Site Development Permit for impacts to Environmentally Sensitive Lands (ESL) in the form of biological resources.
