JAG Projects

For the City of Los Angeles’ Department of Public Works, Bureau of Engineering, UltraSystems prepared five stand‐alone Mitigated Negative Declarations in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and five Environmental Assessments in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for five communications sites located throughout Los Angeles County. The City of Los Angeles used the Recovery Act: Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) funding to provide much needed upgrades to five existing communications sites vital to police, fire, health and other emergency personnel in the City, as well as regional first responders. In addition to preparing the environmental documentation, UltraSystems also conducted site visits in support of biological resource studies, cultural analysis and visual impacts analysis to determine the likelihood of impacts to these resource areas. UltraSystems also developed a public outreach program to engage public stakeholders on the project, particularly for project sites located proximate to private residences or historical structures.
