Document Description
The proposed project is a Tideland Use and Occupancy Permit (TUOP) to Specialty Produce (Tenant) for their use of approximately 58,621 square feet (sq. ft.) of land area located in the City of San Diego, California. The area proposed for use under this TUOP was previously used for parking and is currently vacant, and is proposed to be used only and exclusively for the purpose of vehicle storage, storage of materials and small equipment to support the vehicle storage, employee parking, and all uses which are normally and customarily ancillary or incidental to the those listed above, and for no other purpose whatsoever without the prior written consent of the Executive Director of District in each instance. The project would also include restriping of the existing lot and replacement of the existing parking control arm with a sliding gate. The Tenant would be responsible for compliance with all laws and regulations associated with the activities on or in connection with the above-described premises, and in all uses thereof, including those regulating stormwater and hazardous materials. It is anticipated that the TUOP would have a total term of approximately five (5) years. The TUOP may be terminated by the District or Tenant as a matter of right and without cause at any time after the first (1st) year of this Permit upon providing six (6) months’ notice in writing to the other party of such termination.
