ICF prepared an Environmental Impact Report (EIR)/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the redevelopment of the San Pedro waterfront at the Port of Los Angeles, a comprehensive redevelopment and deindustrialization of more than 400 acres along an eight-mile stretch of waterfront.
The proposed project included 35 project-level detailed elements, including public waterfront and open space areas, commercial development, transportation and parking facilities, the creation of new water areas, and a major expansion of cruise ship facilities and operations. ICF’s scope of work assumed the preparation and processing of the required documentation for certification by the Board of Port Commissioners and the Corps. Major environmental issues include traffic (ground and marine), air quality (including greenhouse gases), health risk, aesthetics, land use, noise, and recreation.
The Notice of Intent/Notice of Preparation, scoping, and extensive community outreach on this high-profile, controversial project have been completed. In order to meet an expedited schedule (public release of a 3,000-page Draft EIR/EIS in 9 months), ICF used staff from seven offices while completing in parallel the Wilmington Waterfront EIR and Cabrillo Way Marina Supplemental Environmental Intelligence Report (SEIR) Addendum. This project was awarded an Association of Environmental Professionals 2009 Award for Outstanding Environmental Analysis Document.
