Environmental Compliance County of Los Angeles Fire Department Headquarters: Santa Clarita, California

The Consolidated Fire Protection District has proposed the development of a new headquarters complex in City Terrace, in the east central portion of Los Angeles. The proposed new headquarters complex would consolidate current headquarters facilities and existing office space that is leased at various locations in the Cities of Commerce and Monterey Park and would provide sufficient space for the Consolidated Fire Protection District staff. The existing facility could not be retrofitted both to be seismically safe and to accommodate the additional equipment and personnel required to support the Consolidated Fire Protection District’s operations.

Sapphos Environmental, Inc. provided the County of Los Angeles Fire Department with an Initial Study that reflected the final conceptual plans for the County of Los Angeles Fire Department New Headquarters Complex. Sapphos Environmental, Inc. also prepared an Environmental Impact Report (EIR), Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Plan, and Findings of Fact and Statement of Overriding Consideration in support of the project.

Sapphos Environmental, Inc. also prepared a Supplemental EIR in support of the Fire Station 108, in the City of Santa Clarita, County of Los Angeles, California. Sapphos Environmental, Inc. analyzed noise impacts related to construction and operation of the proposed project. Sapphos Environmental, Inc. also provided further analysis of air quality and recommended further analysis of geology and soils. Mitigation measures were developed for noise impacts based on the operation of the fire station and the temporary air quality impacts generated during the construction phase to reduce these impacts to below the level of significance.
