Additional activities included in the Work Order include the creation of design documents, plans, and work schedules, project management services, contract compliance activities, conducting meetings, ordering of equipment, deployment preparation, maintenance and operations of the internet service, acquisition of subscribers, provisioning and delivering of internet services to subscribers, community engagement, marketing, and reporting services, none of which meet the definition of a Project under CEQA.
