Design

The TLS project design, construction, operations and employment will be in full compliance with and subject to the full breadth of rights and entitlements vested in Oakland Bulk and Oversized Terminal (OBOT) by the City of Oakland. TLS will also be governed by the State and Federal regulations and laws including the City of Oakland’s Army Base Redevelopment approvals, agreements and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

The Basis of Design (BOD) is the first step in a project’s design process. The BOD describes a project’s operating environment and the desired project performance parameters. The operating environment includes the physical attributes and limitations of project location, available utilities, and regulatory constraints. The BOD leavens project purpose with environmental limitations and policy oversight. Link to pdf

The Oakland Army Base Redevelopment Plan SCA/MMRP is a list which reports on the revisions required in the project and the measures it has imposed to mitigate or avoid significant environmental effects. The SCA/MMRP is in compliance with Section 15097 of the CEQA Guidelines and applies to all plan elements including both horizontal and vertical projects. Lastly, the SCA/MMRP is in place for the current infrastructure improvements and will apply to the TLS program. Link to pdf
