Project Number22-022
Project NameNew Generator at T-Mobile Cell Site 7
Planning DistrictSouth Hills
Project TypeCell Sites
CE AppliedAgreements for use of real property
CE Date5/3/2022
Project Description
Due to the increased frequency and intensity of wildfires in California, T-Mobile is installing emergency generators at their cell sites to support emergency services and residents during power shutoffs and outages. The generators will provide power backup to improve local citizen safety and allow continued connection through times of no power. T-Mobile is proposing modifications (specifically, a new generator and a slightly larger concrete pad that will house it) to its Cell Site 7 at the former infrastructure shed (building 519) near the Broadway Gate. The  generator will use a built-in 211-gallon fuel tank that will hold ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel. The diesel fueled generator meets or exceeds EPA Tier 4  Emission Standards and no California Air Resources Board or BAAQMB certification is required. Construction, installation and maintenance of the generator will comply with NFPA 110. A spill box and spill response kit among other best management practices will help contain or clean up incidental spills from refueling activities.

CE Date4/19/2022
Project Description
The Trust’s Department of Public Safety will temporarily use unoccupied and empty buildings 649, 1051, 1060, 1204-1208 and 1218 to conduct public safety training and exercises as part of a long-range plan to enhance capacity and preparedness and seek grant funding from the Department of Homeland Security. The trainings will be short in duration (generally less than one day) and include search techniques, walking through buildings, light foot traffic, and training props to mimic reality. Fuel sources, forced entries, and destructive aids like percussion or auditory equipment will not be permitted. No building alterations or attachments will be made. Other agencies that may participate include the U.S. Park Police, the San Francisco Fire Department and the San Francisco Police Department. Each training will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to identify protective measures to avoid physical damage to the individual buildings.
 
Project Number22-019
Project NameMinor Concrete Detail Design & Testing at Fort Scott
Planning DistrictFort Scott
Project TypeResearch/Testing
CE AppliedResearch, monitoring, inventorying, and information gathering
CE Date4/11/2022
Project Description
This project will design a new construction detail for minor concrete elements, including sidewalk, curb, curb and gutter and driveway curb cuts. The objectives are to develop a design detail that is not only more cost-effective but is also more environmentally sustainable without compromising durability. Different concrete mixes will be used to develop alternatives to the Trust's current sidewalk specifications and a life cycle assessment will be conducted to compare the alternatives. The current detail and the alternatives will be installed on sidewalk sections in front of buildings 1205, 1206, 1207 and 1208 to assess their performances, including driving over the sidewalks to inform the selection and design of a new sidewalk detail.
 
Project Number22-018
Project NameMountain Lake East Arm Eucalyptus Reforestation
Planning DistrictSouth Hills
Project TypeTrees
CE AppliedRemoval of non-threatened or endangered species
CE Date3/17/2022
Project Description
The Tazmanian Blue Gum Eucalyptus stand along the East Arm of Mountain Lake is a relatively unknown section of the Historic Forest within the Presidio. The Eucalyptus form a buffer between the Presidio Golf Course and the popular Mountain Lake Trail. The trees are typical of the U.S. Army's overcrowded planting strategy and poor maintenance, which has led to a low percentage of live crown ratio that has limited the vigor of each tree within the stand. Recent windthrows have begun to open the canopy of the stand, resulting in continued failures as the remaining trees are subjected to new wind loads they cannot withstand. The proximity to the West Pacific Wall and adjacent properties requires immediate attention to limit further damage. To preserve the historic character of the stand, approximately 100 Eucalyptus within 150 feet of the adjacent properties will be removed and replaced with reduced numbers of smaller stature Eucalyptus and a diversified native understory. The Mountain Lake Trail will be closed during the removal process.
 
Project Number22-016
Project NameBuildings 681, 682, 683 Brightworks School TDM Program
Planning DistrictCrissy Field
Project TypeTransportation/Parking
CE AppliedSpecial events, public assemblies, and meetings
CE Date3/1/2022
Project Description
The Institute for Applied Tinkering (IAT or new tenant) will lease buildings 681-683, soon to be vacated by the Hamlin School, for its K-12 Brightworks School. Traffic management issues at the Hamlin School suggest more aggressive Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program will be needed by the new tenant through their lease agreement. The TDM program will include activities to be conducted by the school and drivers to further reduce and manage auto use. The Trust may also take measures to improve safety and accessibility.
 
Project Number22-017
Project NameAmatury Loop Storm Drainage Improvements
Planning DistrictSouth Hills
Project TypeInfrastructure
CE AppliedInstallation of underground utilities
CE Date3/1/2022
Project Description
Originally, the Amatury Loop storm drain system collected stormwater runoff from upper Amatury Loop and conveyed the water via pipes to an outlet north of Park Boulevard. The storm drain system has failed over time and segments of it have been replaced or modified. Currently, the storm drain discharges onto lower Amatury Loop, releasing water onto the road and crosswalk, and adding to erosion along the Park Trail. The storm drain inlet and pipe in Park Boulevard appear to be nonfunctional. This project will redirect and disperse storm water runoff as it was originally intended at the hillside north of Park Boulevard, remove runoff from lower Amatury Loop and Park Boulevard, and reduce the risk of erosion at the Park Trail. The scope of work includes abandoning old storm drains and a drain inlet, and installing approximately 216 linear feet of storm drain, 5 storm drain inlets and 1 storm drain outlet. This project is part of a larger effort to addresses sources of erosion along the Park Trail in advance of resurfacing the trail. Those additional efforts will be submitted as separate projects for environmental review as plans develop.

Project NameBaker Beach Apartment Conversions
Planning DistrictSouth Hills
Project TypeRehabilitation/Base Bldg
CE AppliedRehabilitation or improvement of historic properties
CE Date2/9/2022
Project Description
Prior to the Trust, the U.S. Army demolished adjoining walls in many two-bedroom units in the historic Baker Beach Apartments (1953) to create four-bedroom units. The Trust considers subdividing dwelling units as an important strategy for replacing housing. This project will convert 36 four-bedroom units back into two-bedroom units, creating an additional 36 rental units. The work will restore the adjoining wall between the units, relocate the front entrance to the original location, and add a kitchen in the original location. The 36 units will be converted as they become vacant.
