. PUBLIC PROJECT ASSESSMENT of proposed improvements to the existing City of San Diego Chollas Water Operations Facility (WOF). The WOF is a central remote control point for the Citys water distribution system and the dispatch center for the majority of City water construction and repair crews. The WOF occupies a 9.32-acre site within the larger 50-acre Chollas City Operations Yard. The project area constitutes 5.04 acres of the 9.32-acre WOF site.
The proposed project would demolish all but one of the existing permanent structures at the site, remove all existing temporary trailers, and would construct a 44,400 square-foot, two-story office building, and a 18,240 square-foot equipment and warehouse building. The office building would contain the administration, engineering, and information systems support functions of the WOF. The equipment and warehouse building would house the Water Meter, Telemetry, Electrical, and Machine Shops, along with a materials and supplies warehouse. The project would include the installation of a 20-foot City water operating and emergency operations communications antenna on the roof of the proposed office building. All of the proposed antenna would be screened by architectural panels. A portion of the existing parking on site would be reconfigured by the proposed project. However, including adjacent shared parking, a total of 549 employee and visitor parking spaces would be provided, which exceeds required by the San Diego Municipal Code parking requirements by 17 spaces. Other site improvements would include new covered truck layout sheds where service vehicles can be loaded, prepare, and secured for the subsequent days jobs.Applicant:
