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 Number19-064
Project NameBuildings 1162 and 1169 Cyclic Maintenance and Repairs
Planning DistrictLetterman
Project TypeMaintenance
CE AppliedRoutine maintenance and property and resource management
CE Date9/10/2019
Project Description
Buildings 1162 and 1169 (Warehouses, 1919) are in need of cyclic maintenance (that is, maintenance performed at regular intervals to prevent asset deterioration). Repairs will include all decking and dry rot. An opening where the roof and wall meet will be closed to prevent pigeons from nesting. Both buildings will be painted to match existing. Attention to cyclic maintenance will maintain the buildings in good standing and reduce cost in the long-term.

Planning DistrictMain Post
Project TypeTransportation/Parking
CE AppliedRepair of roads and parking facilities
CE Date9/10/2019
Project Description
Two intersections in the Main Post will receive limited traffic calming measures in response to current traffic conditions and tenant concerns. The intersection in front of the Presidio Inn will receive restriping, flex posts and plastic curbs to slow traffic at Moraga and Funston. The measures will partially implement previously reviewed improvements (project 18-027) that are on hold pending funding. Similar traffic calming measures will be installed at the Sheridan and Lincoln intersection to address increased pedestrian traffic expected with the opening of the Presidio Theatre.

Project NameBuilding 1808 3rd Floor Tenant Improvements
Planning DistrictPHSH
Project TypeRehabilitation/TI
CE AppliedRehabilitation or improvement of historic properties
CE Date9/10/2019
Project Description
Partitions will be added to enclose two spaces on the third floor of building 1808 (Nurses Quarters, 1932) in preparation of future tenants. A conference area will be created with the installation of an aluminum and glazed storefront assembly in the lobby area opposite the stairway. The new area will match the conference room in the second floor lobby. An office space will be created in the northeast corner of the 3rd floor, which had been historically enclosed.
 
Project Number19-055
Project NameTemporary Closure of Mason Street and Golden Gate Promenade
Planning DistrictCrissy Field
Project TypeTransportation/Parking
CE AppliedRepair of roads and parking facilities
CE Date8/29/2019
Project Description
Beginning September 2019, an approximately 530-foot section of Mason Street and the Golden Gate Promenade trail between Halleck Street and the Mason Street warehouse parking lot will be closed to public use for six months to accommodate the construction of the Quartermaster Marsh culverts. The pair of 34-foot wide by 6-foot high pre-cast concrete box culverts will be placed under the roadway and trail to re-connect Crissy Field Marsh as part of the larger Tennessee Hollow watershed restoration effort. Vehicles and bicycles will be able to access destinations and businesses at the west end of Crissy Field using a Halleck Street detour or McDowell Avenue. Additionally, walkers and bicyclists will use detours immediately around the closure at Crissy Field. The detours will only add a few minutes of travel time to maintain public safety. In addition, the PresidiGo Crissy Field Route will be re-routed up Halleck Street. Stops at the Crissy Field Center, Girard Road and the Presidio Community YMCA will be closed. A new stop will be added on Halleck Street and Mason. The public will be alerted of the temporary closure through signs, barriers and other traffic control measures, electronic and news media, maps, outreach to businesses and residents, and other methods.

Project NameBuilding 103 Water Damage Repair
Planning DistrictMain Post
Project TypeMaintenance
CE AppliedRoutine and continuing government business
CE Date8/29/2019
Project Description
An inadvertently triggered fire sprinkler in the north wing of the 3rd floor of historic building 103 (Barracks, 1896) caused water to penetrate down to the basement levels the building, forcing staff to relocate to open areas within the building. To address the damage, all affected ceiling tiles, cubicle partitions, furniture and carpeting will be removed. Buckling wood floors will be dried and refinished. New carpet and new ceiling panels will replace damaged ones. Sheetrock will be repaired where damaged. Areas will be cleaned and painted.  All moveable furniture will be cleaned and reinstalled. Mechanical systems, life safety detectors, and lighting will be repaired or replaced as needed.
 
Project Number19-061
Project NameRemoval of Groundwater Monitoring Wells Along Mason Street (Area A)
Planning DistrictArea A
Project TypeResearch/Testing
CE AppliedResearch, monitoring, inventorying, and information gathering
CE Date8/22/2019
Project Description
Groundwater monitoring wells that are no longer necessary need to be properly removed in accordance with the most current laws and regulations. This project will remove two wells (207GW200 and 2017GW201) on the pedestrian path along the north side of Mason Street at Halleck Street (Crissy Field Area A) that were installed for remediation of the 207/231 CAP Area and received closure from the Water Board. The wells will be decommissioned by drilling out the wells with a truck-mounted rig and filling the boring with bentonite and grout. Immediately before the start of work, barricades, cones and warning signs will be placed east and west of the work area to direct pedestrians around the truck. Flaggers will be used to stop traffic and pedestrians so the rig can move in/out of place and while it remains parked at each well. The drill rig will park as close as possible to the fencing along the path. The west-bound bike lane on Mason Street will remain open and be shared by bikers in both directions at Halleck Street. Pedestrians will cross Mason and Halleck and Mason again to return to the path during work. All waste will be disposed of as municipal waste. Once complete, the 8-inch holes in the asphalt will be patched to match the surrounding asphalt. The work will take approximately two hours and will be overseen by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control.
 
Project Number19-062
Project NamePresidio Bird Nest Box Program
Planning DistrictPresidio-wide
Project TypeMiscellaneous
CE AppliedDesignation of environmental study and research areas
CE Date8/22/2019
Project Description
Many species of cavity-nesting birds have declined due to habitat reduction. Through a collaborative effort with the California Bluebird Recovery Program, the Trust will install a variety of nest boxes suitable for a number of different cavity species including, but not limited to, western bluebirds, tree swallows, nuthatches, kestrels and barn owls. The project will provide more nesting habitat for native cavity nesting birds in the Presidio, provide opportunities for educational volunteer engagement, and provide more information/data on these cavity nesting birds' survival and dispersal via leg banding (pending federal permit). Boxes will be installed in such sites as Presidio Hills, Rob Hill, the Park Reforestation Stand and the Presidio Golf Course. Boxes will be mounted on fences, posts or accessible tree branches in unobtrusive locations following standardized protocols.
