Categorical Exclusions

​​​​To further transparency and openness in its implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, the Presidio Trust documents its Categorical Exclusion (CE) determinations involving the categories of actions identified in Section 1010.7 of the Trust’s NEPA regulations. The CE database may be searched by planning district, project type, CE applied, or the year initiated.​​ The database is updated approximately monthly. For additional information on the Trust’s NEPA compliance program, email N2@presidiotrust.gov.

Project Description
Project Number21-042
Project NameRehabilitation of East Mason Street Warehouses for Office/Commercial Use
Planning DistrictCrissy Field
Project TypeRehabilitation/Base Bldg
CE AppliedRehabilitation or improvement of historic properties
CE Date9/16/2021
Project Description
Historic buildings 1182 through 1188 (Warehouses, 1917-1919) comprise a distinctive row of seven mostly identical structures that align with Mason Street at the Marina Gate. The buildings have undergone some prior alterations that have added partitions and connections to adjacent buildings to facilitate U.S. Army storage and office uses but retain moderate to high levels of integrity. With the exception of a previous office and warehouse use in two of the buildings, the warehouses have been mostly vacant since 1994 and are in fair condition. This project will rehabilitate the buildings and associated site area for office/commercial occupancy by one or multiple tenants, consistent with Trust long range planning objectives, current applicable building standards and market factors. The project will result in a structurally upgraded “warm shell” with common core(s) and systems. All interior and exterior character defining features will be retained, and new elements (building systems, common area cores, restrooms, storefront entries, circulation elements, exterior ramps and raised decking) will be compatibly designed. New window and skylight openings will re-establish existing openings that were covered over during the U.S. Army era and allow for additional natural light in select areas. Existing historic windows will be retained and repaired. All work will comply with Secretary of Interior Standards for Rehabilitation, Presidio Trust Management Plan planning principles, and project-specific rehabilitation guidelines and treatment recommendations. Building-specific improvements to follow to accommodate future tenants will be subject to additional environmental review. The site’s vehicular circulation and parking lot (for 210 cars) were previously evaluated and constructed as part of the Presidio Parkway project.

CE Date9/14/2021
Project Description
The Trust will rehabilitate the landscape of historic building 220 (Bakers and Cooks School and Barracks, 1939) to reduce potable water consumption and to reinforce the historic character of the building. Landscaping will emphasize the building's entrance (west façade) and deemphasize the service side (east façade).

Project NameBuilding 36 Bay School Tenant Improvement
Planning DistrictMain Post
Project TypeRehabilitation/TI
CE AppliedRehabilitation or improvement of historic properties
CE Date8/31/2021
Project Description
The San Francisco Bay School (building 35 tenant) wishes to expand school use into historic building 36 (Barracks, 1885). The project represents a change in occupancy type from office to education, which will require two new structural walls and seismic reinforcement of existing walls. Historic wall finishes will be removed, stored and reinstalled. New office and classroom spaces will be created by removing existing non-historic partition walls and adding two new partition walls. A single-use restroom and two drinking fountains will be installed on the second floor. Non-historic doors will be modified with vision glass for classroom spaces. Mechanical, electrical, and fire protection work is limited to minor relocation and realignments to support the new layout.

Project TypeLandscaping/Site Work
CE AppliedRoutine maintenance and property and resource management
CE Date8/31/2021
Project Description
A portion of the Presidio’s historic boundary wall along Lyon and Vallejo Streets collapsed in late 2020 due to soil and vegetation overgrowth.

Project Number21-035
Project NameBuildings 1029 and 1030 Landscape Rehabilitation
Planning DistrictLetterman
Project TypeLandscaping/Site Work
CE AppliedLandscaping and landscape maintenance
CE Date7/12/2021
Project Description
The nearly bare and neglected grounds within the Swords to Plowshares (STP) community campus (Buildings 1029 and 1030) stand in stark contrast to the surrounding completed Trust projects and are in need of rehabilitation. The focus of the design will be planting improvements and site furnishings in the central courtyard between the two buildings. The courtyard is a heavily used exterior space for the residents and a gateway for their enjoyment of the Presidio landscape outside the campus. Improvements will include irrigation upgrades, some small expansions/alterations to paved areas, and enhanced planting. The project will also consider the placement of a piece of sculpture near one of the building's entrances subject to additional review and approval.
 
Project Number21-036
Project NameRevisions to COVID-19 Emergency Order/Continuation of Slow Streets
Planning DistrictPresidio-wide
Project TypeSpecial Events
CE AppliedSpecial events, public assemblies, and meetings
CE Date7/12/2021
Project Description
This Order further revises public use limits and closures that are consistent with the City and County of San Francisco’s (CCSF) effective orders, as well as Federal guidance and directives, to reduce COVID-19 risk. The Order includes placing certain safety requirements on individuals, including masking requirements in some settings. The Order also authorizes the Presidio Slow Streets program (project 20-041) to continue for 120 days from the effective date of the Order. The program was launched during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, as a companion to the CCSF's Slow Streets program, to create more space for visitors to walk, run and bike safely in the park during the COVID-19 shelter in place order. As COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, access and space needs for park visitors, residents and employees are evolving. The Presidio Slow Streets have become widely used to enjoy the park and could provide additional recreation opportunities with further study. The extension will give the Trust additional time to evaluate the Presidio Slow Streets corridors and determine recommendations for a post-pandemic future.
 
Project Number21-034
Project NameModifications to West Pacific Slow Street
Planning DistrictSouth Hills
Project TypeTransportation/Parking
CE AppliedRepair of roads and parking facilities
CE Date6/8/2021
Project Description
Since June 2020, West Pacific Avenue from Arguello Boulevard to Presidio Boulevard has been closed to all but emergency access vehicles as part of the Presidio Slow Streets program (project 20-041). The closure was intended to provide more space to walk, run and bike safely during shelter in place. The program is consistent with the City's measures to create a network of Slow Streets throughout San Francisco. As we move into reopening, this project will modify the roadway to allow access to limited parking near the Presidio Wall ball field. While this change is temporary, the final road configuration will be determined after further study, evaluation and outreach.
