Canopy Upgrade by Point Loma Seafoods at Shelter Island
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project would involve canopy upgrades to Point Loma Seafoods (Tenant) in the City of San Diego, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve installation of a 145 square foot (sq. ft.) of fixed shade structure and 745 sq. ft. of retractable shade structure on the bayside exterior of the second floor of the building. The shade structures would cover over existing dining and building walkway area on the second floor and would not extend beyond the building footprint. The highest elevation of the shade structure would be approximately 29 feet above grade. Construction of the proposed improvements would occur in Spring 2021 and would take approximately one (1) month to complete. Additionally, all work would be conducted from the second floor and would not impact the adjacent promenade. 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 Tenant would be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, and stormwater.
