PUBLIC NOTICE OF A
 DRAFT MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION
WBS No.:  S-01015.02.01.01
---
The City of San Diego Entitlements Division has prepared a draft Mitigated Negative Declaration for the following project and is inviting your comments regarding the adequacy of the document.  The draft Mitigated Negative Declaration has been placed on the City of San Diego web-site at http://clerkdoc.sannet.gov/Website/publicnotice/pubnotceqa.html. Your comments must be received by July 12, 2012 to be included in the final document considered by the decision-making authorities. Please send your written comments to the following address:  Myra Herrmann, Environmental Planner, City of San Diego Development Services Center, 1222 First Avenue, MS 501, San Diego, CA 92101 or e-mail your comments to DSDEAS@sandiego.gov  with the Project Name and Number in the subject line.  The General Development Plan for the project can be found on the following City website at http://www.sandiego.gov/planning/programs/parkplanning/tpcitypark.shtml.
 
General Project Information: 
—    Project Name:  Torrey Pines City Park General Development Plan (GDP)       
—    Project No. 206482 / SCH No. Pending
—    Community Plan Area:  University                                       
—    Council District:  1
 
Subject:    MAYORAL APPROVAL to allow for the adoption of the Torrey Pines City Park General Development Plan (GDP). Torrey Pines City Park is a resource-based park first established in 1899 which includes the National Register listed Gliderport.  The proposed Torrey Pines GDP consists of an approximately 57-acre portion of the approximately 434-acre Torrey Pines City Park, and represents the conceptual master plan for the aforementioned portion of Torrey Pines City Park.  The Torrey Pines City Park GDP site is bounded to the north by Indian Canyon and to the south by Box Canyon. Steep ocean bluffs are located adjacent to the west, beyond which is the Torrey Pines State Beach, Torrey Pines City Beach (also known as Black’s Beach) and the Pacific Ocean. Torrey Pines Golf Course, Torrey Pines State Natural Preserve, University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Scripps Hospital, and the Salk Institute are located east of the proposed Torrey Pines City Park GDP.  The project site is within the North City Local Coastal Program, as well as, the University Community Planning Area.  The site is not included on any Government Code listing of hazardous waste sites.
 
The intent of the GDP is to develop a sustainable park that protects the coastal bluffs and natural habitat while providing for the recreational needs of existing and future park users. 

The program detailed in the GDP includes the following six primary components and associated goals:
 
·      Flight – provide access for wind-powered soaring;
·      Beach Access – provide a physical link from the bluff to the ocean;
·      Conservation – preserve and enhance the natural and cultural resources;
·     Education – provide interpretation of resources – natural and cultural;
·      Passive Recreation – provide for the enjoyment of natural open space; and
·      Support Facilities – provide components to be shared by all users.
                 
The  GDP recommends general development options related to each program component, including: preserving and interpreting the park’s cultural resources; improving aircraft uses (fixed-wing aircraft, radio controlled aircraft, hanglider, and paraglider) and the flight operations center; improving beach access trails; restoring eroded bluffs; delineating picnic and viewing areas; providing public restroom facilities; delineating parking; and improving access for emergency vehicles.  Future entitlements including a Site Development Permit (SDP) and Coastal Development Permit (CDP) would be required prior to project implementation, but are not being proposed at this time.  
 
As a part of subsequent SDP and CDP approvals, a Multi-Habitat Planning Area (MHPA) boundary line adjustment would be included as an action taken by the discretionary decision maker at that time.  Approximately 2.4 acres of land would be removed from the MHPA through a boundary line correction due to the fact this area has been in Gliderport use since the 1930s.  In addition, the MHPA boundary line adjustment would remove 0.5 acre currently within the MHPA and would add 22.5 acres to coastal MHPA preserve area.
 
The proposed project would replace the existing 3,200-square-foot (SF) flight operations building with an expanded structure to incorporate flight retail, meeting/classroom, food service and flight storage.  The facility would be relocated to an area that would minimize flight/wind disturbance; and provide improved access.  The building could be expanded to include up to an additional 2,800 SF of space.  Trash and recyclable material receptacles for the café would be stored in a manner that prevents animal access and that collects leachate for proper disposal.  Surface runoff would not be allowed to comingle with the leachate.  Café staff would be required to inspect the area shortly after trash is collected to clean up any residual trash or leachate.
 
The GDP proposes improvements to the takeoff/landing area for hang glider and paraglider aircraft.  Removable bollards connected by heavy chain link would be installed along the boundary between the park and UCSD property, such that the barrier could be removed on days when the runway is in seasonal use by fixed-wing sailplanes. 
 
The Park currently contains two existing connection points to the beach.  Indian Canyon Trail extends to the beach from the North Bluff area, while Citizen’s Trail connects the Park to the beach from the South Bluff.  The GDP proposes to control and define pedestrian paths; no new pathways are proposed by the GDP.  Stairways with wooden steps and handrails are proposed along portions of both trails to promote safe access.  In addition, minor modifications of the existing trails may also occur to promote safety and minimize erosion.  Improvements to the trails would be designed to retreat with erosion.  Signage would be provided at the top and bottom of each trail, including warning signs alerting users to the difficulty of the trail and unstable coastal bluff conditions.  Pedestrian barriers would be installed along the edge of the parking and North Bluff area.
 
The GDP would modify historical functions within the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) boundary of the Torrey Pines City Park by improving the emergency landing strip, defining and controlling access to the Gliderport and adjacent beach, protecting and restoring native vegetation, providing improved and controlled access to existing picnic and observation areas, and implementing an interpretive program.  Improvements would be implemented pursuant to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for the Treatment of Historic Properties, in particular the Standards for Rehabilitation.  While the GDP would limit excavation to the maximum extent feasible to preserve archaeological resources, some excavation may be required.  Fill would be imported to accommodate storm water detention and achieve the necessary grades for site improvements.
 
Approximately 21 acres of the Park would be planted with native, water-efficient vegetation that would complement existing scrub habitats (i.e., Diegan coastal sage scrub, maritime succulent scrub, coastal bluff scrub, etc.; Figure 5).  The airfield and a portion of the North Bluff would be planted with native grasses and sedges.  Low-growing native grasses and forbs would be planted adjacent to runways and parking lots.  A variety of native shrubs and herbaceous plants, along with Torrey pine, would be used as accent and transition plantings near the northern and southern parking areas (away from flight areas).  Temporary, above?ground irrigation would be provided to establish vegetation; this would be monitored to ensure that it is functioning properly and is not creating runoff or erosion issues. 
                 
Roads would be surfaced with resin-bonded aggregate over Class II aggregate base.  Gap-graded material (consisting of sized rock, clay loam, and a soil aggregating polymer), referred to as a lithwick in the GDP, would be included in some planting areas.  Lithwick layers would detain storm water runoff and slowly disperse it to the native vegetation, to ensure its establishment and long-term viability.  Energy dissipaters also would be provided consistent to approved storm water manuals and MSCP Subarea Plan.
 
The GDP proposes to implement an interpretive program through displays and signage that provides information on orientation, regulations, soaring, cultural and natural resources throughout the park area.  A museum may also be integrated into the flight operation center.  Signage would be grouped and integrated to minimize its visual impact to the site.  Gathering area(s) for outdoor classrooms and educational programs would be designated within the north and/or south bluffs.
 
Improvements to passive recreation would include providing approximately two miles of - nature trails that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  The GDP recommends elimination of redundant trails throughout the park site.  No new trails are proposed, and existing trails that remain would be improved for better definition and access control.  Signage would be installed to inform the public about risks of the potentially unstable geology.  Enhancements to existing seating and picnic table areas, restricted to areas where they currently occur but located outside of flight zones are proposed.  Observation decks of various sizes are identified.  Multiple places to host a variety of gatherings would be provided within the North Bluff native grass area. Trash and recyclable material receptacles for public use would have secure lids and would be emptied at least once daily into trash receptacles.  The existing sidewalk along Torrey Pines Scenic Drive would be extended to the park entrance.
 
Support facilities would include improvements to the existing 565-space parking area, such as improved delineation of parking spaces, use of porous pavement, and creation of ADA-compliant and designated pilot spaces.  Up to 32 additional spaces for bicycles would be provided to create a total of 36 bicycle spaces.  Two pre-manufactured “vault”-style restroom structures would be added and an existing City lifeguard observation area would be preserved.   Solar-powered emergency lighting would be integrated into these facilities.  No additional electrical service would be required or provided.  Lighting adjacent to the MHPA would be of the lowest illumination allowed for human safety, selectively placed, shielded, and directed away from preserved habitat.  No water or sewer service is proposed.  Emergency vehicle access would be improved to meet the standards recognized by the City of San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
                 
An estimated 40,000 cubic yards of fill material may be imported and spread over up to 16.1 acres of the project site.  Equipment for grading operation is anticipated to include a grader, a loader, a water truck, and dump trucks.  Project staging would occur entirely within the footprint of the proposed disturbance area.  The project would comply with Greenbook Section 802 regarding demolition material from removal of the existing flight operations building.  All construction would occur during daylight hours; nighttime lighting would not be used during construction. Lighting adjacent to the MHPA would be selectively placed, shielded, and directed away from preserved habitat.  The proposed improvements would be phased over time as funding becomes available.
 
Applicant: City of San Diego, Development Services Department, City Planning and Community Investment - Park Planning Division
 
Recommended Finding:  The recommended finding that the project will not have a significant effect on the environment is based on an Initial Study and project revisions/conditions which now mitigate potentially significant environmental impacts in the following area(s):  Land Use (Multiple Species Conservation Program/Multi-Habitat Planning Area), Biological Resources, Historical Resources (Archaeology), Geology/Soils and Paleontology.
