The California State Coastal Conservancy has released the Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Terminal Four Wharf, Warehouse, and Piling Removal Project on 3/9/20 for a 30 day Public Comment Period through 4/9/20.

In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15072 and Public Resources Code Section 21092, the California State Coastal Conservancy (SCC) is providing notice of intent to adopt an initial study/mitigated negative declaration (IS/MND) of environmental impact for the Terminal Four Wharf, Warehouse, and Piling Removal Project as described here. The public is invited to comment on the IS/MND pursuant to the provisions of CEQA. The review period is 30 days and commences on March 9, 2020, and ends on April 9, 2020. Written comments must be submitted to the SCC no later than 5:00 pm on April 9, 2020. The IS/MND document is available for review between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the SCC offices at 1515 Clay Street, 10th Floor, Oakland, California 94612. Paper copies of the IS/MND are also available for review at Richmond City Hall- 450 Civic Center Plaza, Richmond CA 94804, at the Richmond Public Library – West Side Branch at 135 Washington Avenue in Richmond, CA 94801, and at the Richmond Public Library Main Branch 325 Civic Center Plaza Richmond, CA 94804. Electronic copies of materials referenced in the IS/MND are available for review at SCC’s office. The Draft IS/MND can also be accessed online here.

The Terminal Four Wharf, Warehouse, and Piling Removal Project is a collaborative effort involving the California State Coastal Conservancy (SCC), City of Richmond, and Port of Richmond. The SCC is the proponent of the project and the lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA); the City owns the project site and is a responsible agency under CEQA. This project would remove large amounts of artificial fill, debris, and sources of contamination from the San Francisco Bay by Point San Pablo Terminal Four (Terminal Four or project site), which consists of the remains of a wharf, warehouse, and associated pilings and structures. Upon removal of the artificial fill, the project would also enhance a degraded area of shoreline and the associated intertidal and subtidal habitat, and enable the expansion of existing eelgrass beds and rocky intertidal habitats.
