Print Name: Mike McEntee Title: Executive Vice President of Technical Services and Managing Principal PROPOSAL TO PROVIDE On -Call Environmental Consulting Services PREP,*"NRED FOR City of Beaumont October 21, 2015 PREPARED BY Chambers Group, Inc. CHAMBERS GROUP CHAMBERS GROUP October 21, 2015 62284 Rebecca Deming Director of Planning City of Beaumont 550 E. Sixth Street Beaumont, CA 92223 SUBJECT: Proposal to Provide On -Call Environmental Consulting Services Dear Ms. Deming: The City of Beaumont's (City) growth and continued transportation improvements since its incorporation in 1912 have molded the City to become an exceptional location for new development and expansion opportunities. With accessibility to a main interstate highway (1-10), air and rail travel, and proximity to recreational areas, the City expects an influx of growth and development in the coming years. The City requires on-call environmental consulting services from a qualified consultant who understands not just the stringent environmental regulatory and approval process associated with its projects, but one that will also meet or exceed high expectations—a firm that offers speed of response, local history, regulatory expertise, customer service, and an extreme degree of flexibility. Chambers Group is that firm. For nearly 40 years Chambers Group's focus has been helping public government agencies keep their projects in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and other environmental impact regulations related to natural and cultural resources. In fact, in the last 10 years, we've held over 75 on-call contracts with public agencies. Drawing from this experience and from the firm's proven and streamlined on-call project management process, Chambers Group is prepared to provide the City with on-call environmental consulting services. Chambers Group expects that the majority of environmental documentation will be compliant with CEQA, thus, document preparation for City proposed projects are expected to require a Categorical Exemption (CE) or a Negative Declaration (ND). In the event in which an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is desired, Chambers Group is equipped to prepare such a document and is set to provide the City with technical studies in Air Quality/GHG, Biological Resources, Cultural/Paleontological Resources, Geotechnical 1 Phase I Assessments, Hydrology and Water Quality, Noise, and Traffic. To accomplish the objectives of the scope of services, Chambers Group will initiate a project kick-off meeting, develop and finalize a project description, prepare the necessary environmental document, circulate it, respond to comments, and prepare a final document for circulation and certification. Our value-added services will include our customer service and collaborative work approach, and quality control and assurance. M;3. Rebecca Deming Octo �r21, 2015 Page 2. The Chambers Group team is structured in such a way that is efficient and effective for on-call contracts. The team will be led by Ms. Corinne Lytle-Bonine as Project Manager. She will also serve as the primary point -of -contact and will proactively collaborate with the City. Supporting her will be Ms. Eunice Bagwan as Deputy Project Manager who will provide project management assistance and subconsultant coordination; Ms. Saralah Skidmore as the Biological Resources Task Manager; Ms. Rachael Nixon Cultural Resources Task Manager; and Mr. John Gifford as the Technical Advisor.

Drawing from our experience of having managed 75 on-call contracts in the last 10 years, we are confident in our ability to apply our streamlined on-call project management process along with our quality client service and collaborative team -work approach to provide the City with the highest standard of environmental documents. In fact, as recently as last week, Chambers Group was awarded the Outstanding Environmental Analysis Document — Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIRIEIS) from the Association of Environmental Professionals at the 2015 Awards and Scholarship Banquet. UNDERSTANDING Chambers Group understands that the City is in need of a qualified consultant to provide on-call environmental services. In accordance with California State Laws and regulations, the City requires the implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines when reviewing development projects, as well as other discretionary activities, that may have an impact on the environment. The City anticipates to award one contract to one consulting firm, but may however select several firms to meet the needs of potential project schedule overlap. At this time, the City foresees at least one developer project that will require environmental review. The contracted consultant is expected to analyze environmental impacts as it prepares environmental documents such as EIRs, MNDs, NDs, ISs, and technical studies in compliance with the requirements of CEQA and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) on behalf of the City. The contracted consultant is also expected to attend public meetings, regularly interface and communicate with City staff and other City consultants, and attend regularly scheduled coordination meetings, as necessary, when work is in progress. DISCUSSION OF SCOPE OF SERVICES To accomplish the objectives of the scope of services, we will apply our streamlined on-call project management process, client service standards, and collaborative team -work approach. Upon a Task Order approval and work authorization, Chambers Group will initiate a project kick-off meeting to achieve the following: ■ Establish communication and reporting protocols Discuss staff roles, responsibilities, and expectations Gather project description information and all associated pertinent data including schedule and budget A Address any project concerns or issues The next steps are listed below to briefly demonstrate the typical work flow during the preparation of a CEQA/NEPA environmental document: 1. Finalize Project Description 2. Review/Scope Potential Significant Issues 3. Attend Formal Scoping Meeting (when required) 4. Prepare Draft CEQA/NEPA Document and Notices and Conduct/Manage Technical Studies 5. Attend Public Hearing on Draft CEQA/NEPA Document 6. Review/Respond to Public Comments on Draft CEQA/NEPA Document 7. Prepare Final CEQA/NEPA Document and Notices ,lilI�r..�r CHAMBERS s� 0 GROUP Wving F"Am"MI."9d Ch',11' ngr5 . Our quality control and assurance (QA/QC) protocol is integrated throughout the life cycle of the document preparation process. Our objectives are to prepare the necessary environmental document, circulate it, respond to comments, and prepare a final document for circulation and certification. CONTACT INFORMATION As the Managing Environmental Planner at Chambers Group, Ms. Corinne Lytle-Bonine will serve as the Project Manager and Primary Point of Contact for the City.

Subconsultant Name Technical Role Vista Environmental Air Quality, Climate Change]Global Warming, Noise CHJ Consultants Geology and Soils, Mineral Resources, Hazards and Hazardous Materials Haley + Aldrich Hydrology and Water Quality Iteris Transportation/Traffic APPROACH TO DELIVERING SCOPE OF SERVICES Typical tasks of this on-call contract will include CEQA/NEPA documentation preparation and/or technical studies needed including air, traffic, geotechnical, and noise. The information below provides Chambers Group's technical approach to accomplish the items outlined in the scope of services. COMMUNICATION AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT APPROACH Our firm has developed a systematic approach to project management of on-call contracts. Because our business includes regularly -renewed on-call/as-needed contracts, our staff is adept at managing simultaneous tasks at multiple sites, CHAMBERS `rite' GROUP Solving 1 rtvirn>1uu.dni ..^.I�nil. n, t� expediting project schedules and ensuring consistent, high-quality delivery, from preparing permit packages and organizing preconstruction surveys to overseeing compliance monitoring and restoration. Chambers Group has a fully -integrated Resources Scheduling and Budgeting component for advanced resource management to ensure a project is completed on time and on budget while maintaining top quality documents and customer service. Our methods of effective communication and project management coordination will provide the City the necessary tools to manage the environmental process for private development and City initiated projects. Strict and defined communication procedures are vital for contract success, and as such, Chambers Group will provide the City with a communication protocol, including the chain of communication during all project work with whom and when to contact. In addition, the firm has developed an efficient system for managing subconsuitants in order to keep abreast of subconsultants' progress on the project and identify potential problems before they arise, This plan is in place to minimize delays during unforeseen circumstances in that other team members can easily step in to perform the needed tasks. ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES AND MINOR ENVIRONMENTAL DOCUMENTATION Chambers Group's environmental planners led by, in association with other members of our team, have decades of experience providing CEQA compliance services for planning and development (residential, commercial, industrial) projects, water and sewer projects, transportation projects, buildings, parks, storm drains, restoration activities and other engineering - type projects. Our team combines our experience with proven management techniques that focus on flexibility, responsiveness and accountability. Chambers Group also realizes that the complex processes necessary to produce legally -defensible environmental documentation cannot be accomplished without a close relationship with City staff, and an in-depth understanding of the City, project details and characteristics of the local environment. Chambers Group will work seamlessly with City staff to meet schedules, work within budget, and produce environmental documentation that is thorough and complete. Notably, with more than three decades in the business, there has not been a CEQA or NEPA document prepared by Chambers Group that has ever been successfully challenged. Because we expect the majority of environmental documentation required will be in compliance with CEQA, the approaches delineated below are regarding CEQA compliance. If, however, a project is proposed that will receive federal funding or requires approval from a federal agency, a NEPA document will be required. Our approach to NEPA documents follow closely our CEQA approach and every attempt will be made to combine efforts for both processes, saving both time and costs. CEQA CATEt O I(;AL EXEMPTION For the purpose of this scope, it is assumed that the City will have made the initial determination that a project is categorically exempt. However, Chambers Group does have experience advising agencies whether a project is categorically exempt. Chambers Group will prepare the supporting statements and required forms for filing of the Categorical Exemption. CEQA NEGATIVE DECLARATIO The scope of work provides Chambers Group's approach to preparation of an IS and ND for a small project. There are instances when an IS and MND can be large and complicated, as in construction on undeveloped land within sensitive cultural resource areas or projects that may involve controversial matters. Technical studies may be required to support the findings in the IS and to develop mitigation measures, These studies could include biological resources technical reports, - CHAMBERS 1100'z' GROUP .'whin,; Fnviiunnswai Ch,ili•rt�;er. archaeological resources technical reports, historic structures evaluations, noise studies, air quality studies, geotechnical and traffic studies, all of which can be performed with Chambers Group's project team. Chambers Group's approach includes brief reconnaissance -level field studies by an environmental analyst, biologist, and archaeologist to determine if more detailed technical studies are required. Chambers Group is also assuming that these will be MNDs. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT In the event a project may warrant a preparation of an EIR, Chambers Group will review and prepare the needed technical studies, notices and drafts in accordance with CEQA guidelines. Such documents will include technical reports, draft EIR, notice of preparation, responses to comments, mitigation and monitoring plans, and the final EIR. Chambers Group will coordinate with our subconsultants, and approved subconsultants of the City to prepare legally defensible environmental documents for City projects. PREPARATION OF TCCN 4I(;AL STUDIES AND SPECIAL STUDIES It is anticipated that during development of Initial Studies and minor environmental documentation, air quality, GHG, and noise analyses will be required. It is expected that if other technical studies are required such as hydrology/water quality, traffic, or geotechnical, the City will use approved consultants identified under those categories. Our approach to these is as follows: AIR QUALITYIGHG — VISTA ENVIRONMENTAL Beaumont is located within the South Coast Air Basin and the air emissions in the Air Basin are regulated by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). The City has the authority and responsibility to reduce air pollution through its police power and decision-making authority. Specifically, the City is responsible for the assessment and mitigation of air emissions resulting from its land use decisions. The City relies on the expertise of the SCAQMD and utilizes the SCAQMD CEQA Handbook as the guidance document for the environmental review of plans and development proposals within its jurisdiction. The approach used for air quality analyses are dependent on if it is to be prepared for CEQA, NEPA, or Caltrans standards but typically includes identifying the air quality setting, obtaining the criteria pollutant concentrations from the nearest monitoring station, providing a summary of all applicable air quality regulations, identifying the applicable thresholds of significance, evaluating and quantifying regional criteria pollutant emissions from construction and operations through use of CalEEMod, evaluating localized criteria pollutant concentrations through use of SCAQMD Look -Up Tables or through use of AERMOD, providing an odor analysis that identifies potential odor sources and sensitive receptors that may be impacted, and determining if any thresholds have been exceeded and, if necessary, providing mitigation to reduce impacts to less than significant levels. The approach used for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions analyses typically includes identification of GHG pollutants and their impacts to climate change, identification of applicable plans, policies and regulations and thresholds of significance, evaluation and quantification of GHG emissions from construction and operations through use of CalEEMod, determination of any thresholds have been exceeded, and if necessary develop mitigation to reduce impacts to less than significant levels, and provide a consistency analysis to determine if the project would conflict with any applicable plan for reducing GHG emissions. M0 t -'4 CHAMBERy GROUP Snlain-� [n. inuemra,:.xl f.?]aih 7�•n BIOLOGICAL RESOURCES Chambers Group's biology task may utilize our deep bench of well-rounded biologists allowing for scheduling of simultaneous tasks at multiple sites. Our biological resources staff hold permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) for collecting select species, conducting protocol surveys of sensitive species, and following specialized habitat evaluation procedures. The biology staff includes botanists and restoration ecologists who survey for sensitive plant species as well as specialize in restoration, revegetation, and soil analysis. In addition, Chambers Group staff are certified to perform wetland delineations. Chambers Group biologists will prepare biological technical documents, develop mitigation measures during the final design to avoid, minimize, and/or compensate for impacts to biological resources, and prepare any required restoration and mitigation monitoring plans. Chambers Group biologists will coordinate with wildlife agencies and assist in a full range of consultant services under federal and state endangered species acts. Our staff provides permit assistance for all project aspects (including a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers [USACE] Clean Water Act Section 404 permit, CDFW Section 1602 Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement, and Regional Water Quality Control Board [RWQCB] Section 401 Water Quality Certification), In addition, our staff will communicate and coordinate with the City's engineer and environmental staff, resource agencies, and construction contractors regarding project schedules and the effects of design changes on the environment. Our staff will anticipate issues and provide solutions to avoid conflict. CULTURAL/PALEONTOLOGICAL RESOURCES The cultural resources task will be supported by our in-house archaeological, architectural history, and paleontological staff. The team is well equipped to respond to a wide range of cultural resources -related situations and provide expeditious resolution to complex challenges. The firm's staff is highly trained in all aspects of cultural resources, historic preservation and paleontological laws. Moreover, all team members have been trained in the new Assembly Bill 52 (Ab -52) requirements regarding Native American Tribal Cultural Resources and Consultation, part of the CEQA environmental review effective July 1, 2015. Additionally, the Chambers Group team meets or exceeds the Secretary of the Interior's standards and guidelines for archaeology, history, historic architecture, and meets professional standards in paleontology. The team has conducted thousands of cultural and paleontological resources assessments, including survey, testing, data recovery, and construction monitoring. The Chambers Group team has considerable experience in cultural and paleontological resources management related to archaeology (both historic and prehistoric), built environments, ethnography, and fossil remains for public and private sector clients. Chambers Group has worked throughout the Riverside County and is very familiar with the types of cultural and paleontological resources within this area. Our experience includes: ■ CEQA AB 52 Native American consultation and Tribal Cultural Resources Sacred Lands file searches with the Native American Heritage Commission ■ Conducting small to large scale record searches and archival research ■ Cultural resources inventory surveys and site assessments ■ Paleontological resources inventory surveys and site assessments ■ Mobile tablet -based survey and inventory capabilities ■ Historic district identification and nominations CHAMBERS GROUP Solving Fnvkn31rrwn%J Ch.:UrnIe •: 0 Preparation of Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) 523 series farms Technical reports in support of environmental documents ■ Development and implementation of mitigation and treatment programs ■ Preparation and implementation of cultural resources awareness training ■ Construction monitoring services ■ Development of and participation in public workshops, commission presentations, and community engagement services ■ Preparing Historic American Building Survey (HABS)IHistoric American Engineering Record (HAER) documentation m Development and management of cultural resources databases ■ Coordination with the State Historic Preservation Officer GEOLOGY AND SOILS 1 PHASE 1 ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENT — CHJ CONSULTANTS Beaumont is located in the structural block between the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults. As such, it is subject to seismic hazards such as strong ground shaking, ground rupture, liquefaction and seismic settlement. There are no Alquist- Priolo Earthquake Fault Zones in the city, but there are strands in the Beaumont Plains fault zone that are identified as potential ground rupture hazards by Riverside County. There are no identified mineral resource zones in the city (General Plan, 2007), but small areas of wash deposits may have some commercial potential. Concerns and hazards regarding geology, soils and hazardous materials are required to be addressed by CEQAINEPA projects, which as a minimum should address the Appendix G checklist items in CEQA. The typical Phase I Environmental Site Assessment evaluates the property with systematic procedures designed to identify potential sources of contamination. Past site and adjacent area usage is determined through review of historic aerial photographs, fire insurance maps, city directories, and personal interviews. Additional research may include review of records at building departments, fire departments and planning departments. A site and area reconnaissance is performed to verify existing conditions. Throughout the research, site observation, and report preparation process, and communication is maintained with the client regarding significant findings of recognized environmental conditions. In some cases it can be cost effective to investigate Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs), if needed, with concurrent Phase II approaches and provide one report to the City. Geologic and soils concerns and hazards are typically addressed through a review of historic mono and stereo aerial photographs, and review of published and unpublished literature and maps. A site reconnaissance is then performed. Depending on the purpose and level of detail required, geologic mapping may be conducted to identify geologic units (including landslides, USDA soil units) and structure (typically faults in the city), and characterize the geologic and geotechnical hazards with respect to the proposed project. A similar procedure is utilized for minerals assessments. If potentially economic mineral assets are found, laboratory testing may be required to determine their suitability for various uses (aggregate, asphalt, etc). HYDROLOGY AND WATER QUALITY - HALEY + ALDRICH The city is located within the Santa Ana River watershed, with drainage flowing into the San Jacinto River and ultimately into Canyon Lake and Lake Elsinore. Both of these downstream lakes are impaired due to nutrients, and have adopted Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs). In addition, the City is a co -permittee under the County of Riverside's area wide stormwater permit (Order R8-2010-0033), which requires additional controls on development projects. The average annual precipitation is 17.8 inches. ,X04' -, 6 CHAkfABERS GROUP Snfring Fnvi.nnmr.Ota fi..:3lrnge . 4D i I � t II ' Oifi]ppal t*,1P d1 ly t�rlf+�nrr;.t�t ��:�sullt�;t�if��s. Haley + Aldrich will develop the Hydrology and Water Quality sections of the environmental documents required under this contract. This section will address the environmental setting (regional hydrology, local hydrology and drainages, water supply, surface water quality, groundwater resources, flood hazards, and dams). This section will include a discussion of the regulatory framework governing the uses and protection of water resources (e.g., Federal Clean Water Act, California Porter -Cologne Water Quality Act, City General Pian and ordinances). Haley + Aldrich will then provide an evaluation of potential short-term (construction) and long-term (operational) project impacts on hydrology and water quality as well as alternative mitigation measures to address them. NOiSE — VISTA ENVIRONMENTAL The approach used for noise analyses typically includes identifying noise sources in the project study area, obtaining noise measurements of the existing ambient noise levels in the vicinity of the project site, evaluating construction -related noise impacts at the nearby sensitive receptors through use of FHWA's Roadway Construction Noise Model (RCNM), utilizing FHWA's RD -77-108 or TNM noise models to model traffic noise increases created by the project, utilizing reference noise measurements and standard drop-off rates or the SoundPian model to analyze noise impacts from non -transportation noise sources, and determining if any thresholds have been exceeded and, if necessary, providing mitigation to reduce impacts to less than significant levels. TRAFFIC - iTERIS Iteris understands the City's needs for transportationitraffic consulting services, by a qualified and cost-effective firm, in order to continue to provide an efficient circulation network throughout the city. Iteris recognizes the desire to ensure that the local roadway system as well as regional transportation system meets current and future demands of various modes of transportation. Iteris will provide traffic analysis services to be used in environmental documentation, adhering to CEQA and/or NEPA guidelines. These services would include intersection or freeway levels of service (LOS), travel demand modeling, and standalone traffic impact and parking studies. Transportation improvements will be identified to reduce intersection and roadway segment significant traffic impacts to a level considered less than significant. Recommendations may include additional lanes, new roadway segments, transportation systems management, transportation demand management, and/or changes in roadway functional classifications. As a value-added service, Iteris would also provide comprehensive peer reviews of transportation/traffic impact reports for development projects prepared by others. In addition, Iteris is well suited to provide support for CEQA-level analysis in the transition from the LOS measure to the Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) measure due to the enactment of Senate Bill (SB) 743. The end product of these analyses would be the determination of an average VMT by land use type upon build out of a specific private development or City - initiated project. <, L Founded nearly 40 years ago in 1978, Chambers Group is guided by the principles of the NEPA, CEQA, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, Migratory Bird Treaty Act, National Historic Preservation Act, Archaeological Resource Protection Act, and the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.

The purpose of the study is to explore, compile and report on the issues, techniques, approaches and outcomes experienced by each agency. The study aims at addressing differing approaches taken by member agencies despite uniformly applied regulations. With differing levels of staff support, financial assets and experience, these individual approaches often lead to disparate outcomes. The net result is a system that is inefficient both in terms of cost effectiveness and timely implementation. The BMP Report will provide SCAG and its member agencies with a toolbox of useful information that can be applied in the environmental, regulatory process. The report will recommend a consistent applied framework and approach to environmental compliance that will reduce duplication of efforts and promote efficiency across the region.

The HRA utilized emission rates calculated from the EMFAC2011 model and AERMOD View to calculate the diesel particulate matter (DPM) concentrations from four construction alternatives and operations at the nearby sensitive receptors. No significant construction or operational health risks were found. The noise analysis utilized the FHWA's RCNM model to analyze the noise impacts from onsite construction activities and utilized the FHWA RD -77-108 model to analyze the noise impacts associated with the haul trucks on the roads to the sediment depository locations. The analysis found that a significant noise impact may occur due to the differing jurisdictions allowable construction times and the analysis provided mitigation limiting the time construction activities may occur. The analysis also found that a significant vibration impact may occur and provided mitigation that limited the type of equipment that can operate within 180 feet of an offsite structure. `1 CHAMBERS ik"' GROUP snivirp rrwironm:wir C]afIrn i�4 With incorporation of the proposed mitigation all noise and vibration impacts were reduced to less than significant levels.
