Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project would involve the removal and replacement of an existing guest dock by Shelter Island Inc. dba Bali Hai Restaurant (Applicant) in the city of San Diego, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve the In-kind replacement of an existing "l"-shaped floating dock measuring approximately 104 feet in length, 10.58' in width with the main walk ·84 feet in length by 9.58' in width and secured by 12 piles. The existing dock piles and gangway would remain in place. The proposed project would also involve the replacement of eight (8) existing light pedestals and one (1) existing fire hose box. All utilities would need to be reconnected and run internally between the concrete deck structure and the float system following replacement of the floating dock. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur in Winter 2024 and would take approximately six (6) weeks to complete, with ongoing maintenance as needed. The prefabricated dock float would be assembled in the Shelter Island Boat launch Facility parking lot and installed by launching the new float sections of the dock into the water. Similarly, all existing dock floats would be removed at the Shelter Island Boat Launch ramp and disposed of accordingly. Project staging would occur in the Shelter Island Boat Launch Facility parking lot and approximately 12 parking spaces would be temporarily utilized during construction. No ADA or boat trailer stalls shall be used for project staging, and the project staging area shall not extend beyond the stall lines as to not obstruct boat trailer or vehicular traffic.
