Document Description
The proposed project would involve the temporary placement of outdoor dining decks by Il Fornaio (Applicant), subtenant to Coronado Ferry Landing, in the City of Coronado, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve placement of two (2) temporary decks, approximately thirty (30)-feet (ft.) by thirty ft. and eighteen (18) by thirteen (13) ft., which would be supported by truss beams and tubular steel columns on concrete footings over existing landscaped area. The decks would be entirely within the leasehold, would not encroach into the adjacent promenade, and would include a forty-two (42)-inch tall guardrail to prevent falling from the deck. The proposed decks would be temporary in nature and would be allowed in accordance with Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) indoor-dining related health restrictions. Once COVID-19 related indoor dining restrictions are lifted, the Applicant would be required to remove the decks within forty-five (45) days after notice by the appropriate Asset Manager for the property. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur in Winter 2020 and would take approximately two days 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.
