Tidelands Use and Occupancy Permit to Flagship Cruises and Events to Relocate a Waste Enclosure from Navy Pier
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project is for a Tidelands Use and Occupancy Permit (TUOP) to Flagship Cruises and Events (Tenant) for their use of approximately 210 square feet of tideland area in the City of San Diego, California. The area proposed for use under this TUOP would be for the relocation of a waste enclosure that is currently located on Navy Pier to avoid conflicts with the Navy Pier Head House demolition. The site for the proposed relocation is east of the entrance to Navy Pier, and the relocated enclosure would be configured in a way that would not impede existing driving aisles. The purpose of this use under the TUOP would be exclusively for the purpose of an enclosure for trash, recycling, and grease receptacles and for no other purpose whatsoever without the prior written consent of the Executive Director of the District in each instance. At the relocation site, the receptacles would be enclosed by a fence, which is how the receptacles are enclosed at the current location. It is anticipated that it would take between 1-2 days to relocate the waste enclosure. It is anticipated that the TUOP would have a total term of approximately two (2) years. The TUOP may be terminated by the Executive Director of the Port District or their duly authorized representative, or Tenant, as a matter of right without cause at any time upon the giving of thirty (30) days’ notice in writing to other party 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, 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.
