Right of Entry License Agreement to AT&T for Fiber Splicing at Harbor Island
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project is a Right of Entry (ROE) to AT&T (Applicant/Permittee) to enter certain properties located in the City of San Diego, California. The areas proposed for use under this ROE would be used by the Permittee and their authorized agent(s) and contractor(s) for the purpose of accessing two (2) manholes to splice fiber cable at the sidewalk along Harbor Island Drive, as well as ingress and egress in support of those activities. No trenching would be required and construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur at the start of 2021. It is anticipated that the ROE would have a total term of approximately six (6) months or upon completion of the work, whichever occurs earlier. The ROE may be terminated by the District as a matter of right and without cause at any time upon providing twenty-four (24) hours’ notice in writing to the Permittee of such termination. 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.
