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 TypeRehabilitation/TI
CE AppliedRehabilitation or improvement of historic properties

Project Number20-019
Project NameBuildings 86/87 Landscape Improvements
Planning DistrictMain Post
Project TypeLandscaping/Site Work
CE AppliedLandscaping and landscape maintenance
CE Date2/4/2020
Project Description
The lawn irrigation west of buildings 86-87 along Anza Avenue was turned off in recent years as part of the Trust’s water conservation efforts. In part in response to building tenant complaints, this project will convert approximately 5,000 square feet of lawn to low-water use succulents and shrubs to improve the appearance of the landscape. Replanting trees at this location, as they existed during the period of significance, is not possible due to the presence of numerous utility lines. In lieu of trees, species around the immediate perimeter of the buildings and/or proposed for the Tunnel Tops will be planted. Some of the work will be done as part of the California Re-Scape (formerly Bay Friendly) class and practicum scheduled this Spring.

Planning DistrictMain Post
Project TypeSite Furnishings
CE AppliedInstallation of signs, displays, and kiosks
CE Date1/30/2020
Project Description
One of the biggest challenges faced by blind and partially sighted park visitors is obtaining a concept of their surroundings. This bronze, 3-D topographical tactile map of the Presidio will enable people with low vision to make their park experiences more engaging, informative and enjoyable while visiting. The map will be located near the Visitor Center (building 210) on Lincoln Boulevard next to the two interpretive waysides in front of the Presidio Fire Station (building 218). A new 11- by 17-1/2-foot cement pad will replace the existing pad to accommodate the map and existing waysides and allow for wheelchair clearance.
 
Project Number20-016
Project NameLone Mountain Playground Equipment Replacement
Planning DistrictPHSH
Project TypeRecreation
CE AppliedImprovements to meet disabled access requirements
CE Date1/23/2020
Project Description
The two play structures in Lone Mountain Children’s Center’s (Lone Mountain) outdoor playground behind building 1806 do not meet current playground certification requirements. In addition, the older structure installed in 2001 is failing from wear and can no longer be repaired, as is the existing poured rubberized surface in both play areas that provides soft cushioning to prevent serious injury in the event of a fall. This project will remove/dispose of the existing equipment, install new play structures and replace the poured surface. The new structures will be comparable in size and appearance (including color palette) to the current equipment. Once installed, the new equipment will meet all safety requirements and will be formally certified by a licensed and qualified playground inspector. The work will be completed during the summer when the school will be closed.
