The Port of Long Beach is seeking public comment on an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) and Application Summary Report (ASR) prepared for a fireboat station proposed for the Port’s inner harbor at Pier D. A public hearing to take comments on the IS/MND has been set for 5 p.m., Wednesday, May 4, at the Port’s Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive, Long Beach 90815, in the Harbor Commission Boardroom.
The proposed project would relocate a temporary fireboat station into a permanent two-story, 9,416-square-foot building to accommodate a six-member fireboat crew and two firetrucks. The project would include an 18,700-square-foot boat bay with roof enclosure for a fireboat.
The IS/MND concluded that the project’s environmental impacts would be less than significant with mitigation. The documents, which are required under the California Environmental Quality Act and California Coastal Act, are available online at www.polb.com/ceqa.
The public can comment in person at the May 4 hearing, or in writing until May 16, 2016. Submit written comments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org; or via regular mail to Heather Tomley, Director of Environmental Planning, Port of Long Beach, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive, Long Beach, CA 90815.
