    Hi Michael,

    Thank you so much for your support. On behalf of Archbel, I agree to the items you list:

    1) The property boundary retaining wall and fence will be build entirely on the 7310-7312 Fay Avenue property and it will not encroach onto our property (7318-7320 Fay Ave.)

    2) Archbel will be responsible for removing the existing wall and footing. Care should be taken to not damage the driveway, walkway and the existing vine plant.

    3) The retaining wall will create approximately 6 inches of open space between the wall and the existing driveway and walkway. We are asking Archbel to install a French drain or other appropriate means in this space to help prevent the effect of water running down the slope from undercutting the retaining wall.

    3) The attached Archbel rendering and design sketches (masonry pattern, sold and lattice portions of the fence) are approved by both property owners. Of note, the total height of the retaining wall and fence should not exceed 10 feet 6 inches as measured from the 7318-7320 Fay side of the wall and fence.

    4) Archbel will be responsible for the total cost of materials and labor associated with the construction of the retaining wall and fence.

    5) To facilitate the construction of the wall and fence, Archbel workers can have access to 7318-7320 Fay property. During the construction phase of the wall and fence, Archbel agrees to release the 7318-7320 property owners from all legal responsibilities and liability claims.

    Kind regards,
    Jose Luis Izabal

    UCSD Planning Report Agenda Item re 7071 Via Capri Coastal Permit Waiver

    Waiver: 6-22-0576-W
    Applicant: University of California, San Diego (c/o Robert Clossin)
    Location: 7071 Via Capri, La Jolla, San Diego (San Diego County) (APN: 352-310-

    Questions regarding this project:

    (1) Please show the exact location of the “bunkers” and the plan for removing the above-ground buildings (which may be poured concrete integrated with the pad – thus if located above a bunker that has the potential to disturb the subterranean structures).

    (2) Please explain the temporary fencing’s design (chain-link?) and if the temporary fencing will remain in place for the full project timeline or if the fencing is for the demo period only.

    (3) Please address if this site was reviewed in the past and were the conclusions that hazardous materials are located at the site from prior usages. The waiver mentions that all materials from the demo will be disposed of “outside of the Coastal Zone”, but does not indicated if those materials will require transport to a certified hazardous waste site for ultimate disposal.

    (4) The project site (above-ground) is fully visible from the adjacent public roadway and from the Mt Soledad National Veterans Memorial. The view over the site from the roadway comprises the full panorama of La Jolla Shores, La Jolla Shores Beach (Kellogg Park) and Scripps Pier. The structures and fencing cannot be hidden from public view, thus please explain how it was determined for the waiver that there was no visual impact.

    (5) What will be UCSD’s use of this site after the research period (one year).

    Ms Delouri, thank you for following up on this and answers to these questions. Sincerely, Kathleen Neil
