PROJECT IMPACTS: Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, acting as the Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) and the Lead Agency, has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR, SCH NO. 2019049125) for the Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI) Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) (the proposed project), located in the City of Coronado. Adoption of the proposed project would result in significant and unavoidable impacts to land use/planning in the City of Coronado with respect to potential nonresidential development in the Hotel-Motel zoning district. The proposed project would result in less than significant impacts to all other CEQA resource categories.
PROJECT LOCATION: NASNI is located in the northwest portion of the City of Coronado. The project area, which is defined by the proposed Airport Influence Area (AIA), covers approximately 175 square miles of land. After excluding National Forests, National Park Service properties, BLM wilderness areas, military installations, and tribal lands, the AIA covers 125 square miles in the cities of Coronado, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, National City, and San Diego, unincorporated San Diego County and the San Diego Unified Port District.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The NASNI ALUCP would serve as the primary tool for the ALUC in reviewing proposed land developments in the NASNI environs for compatibility with military aviation operations. The ALUCP is also intended to assist local agencies (the cities of Coronado, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, National City, San Diego, the San Diego Unified Port District and the County of San Diego) in preparing or amending land use plans and regulations as well as in the review of proposed land use projects within their jurisdiction.
As required by state law, the ALUCP is consistent with the safety and noise standards in the 2011 Air Installations Compatible Use Zones (AICUZ) study, prepared by the United States Navy for NASNI. The ALUCP provides airport land use compatibility policies pertaining to four airport-related compatibility factors: 1) noise, 2) safety, 3) airspace protection, and 4) overflight. The policies of the ALUCP would apply only to off-base land uses on non-federal lands as the ALUC does not have jurisdiction over federal property, nor does the ALUC have any authority over aviation operations.
PUBLIC REVIEW: Due to Covid-19, the FEIR and ALUCP will only be available for general public review on the SDCRAA website at https://www.san.org/nasni.
