The West Roseville Specific Plan (WRSP) includes 3,162 acres west of Fiddyment Road, generally north of Pleasant Grove Blvd. The Final EIR for the WRSP was certified February 14, 2004 (State Clearinghouse No. 2002082057). Chapter 8 of the WRSP, Public Services, included the planned development of a Regional Sports Park containing 10 soccer fields, baseball fields, a lighted soccer/football stadium, tennis courts, softball fields, concession area with restrooms, outdoor seating, and parking lots (refer to page 8-8 and Figure 8-4 of the WRSP). This Regional Sports Park was proposed to be located on WRSP Parcels F-55 and F-56, on the corner of Blue Oaks Boulevard. and Hayden Parkway.
Since certification of the WRSP EIR, the proposed location of the Regional Sports Park (currently referred to as the Roseville Regional Sports Complex) has changed, and is evaluated in this Subsequent IS as the Proposed Project. The location of the Sports Complex has been relocated approximately 0.6 miles southwest of the original proposed location to WRSP Parcels W 60A, W 60B, W 50E. The project site is bounded by Westbrook Boulevard to the east, the Pleasant Grove Wastewater Treatment Plant to the east, and undeveloped parcels zoned for commercial uses to the north and south. Additionally, the site plan arrangement has been modified to include 10 sports fields, a universally accessible playground, parking lots, restrooms, and picnic areas. Overall, the Proposed Project is a less intensive use than originally proposed and represents a smaller project site (approximately 51 acres rather than 75.15 acres).
In April 2020, the City of Roseville approved an Addendum to the 2004 WRSP EIR to develop a 6-field sports complex on WRSP Parcel W-60A. The City now proposes to acquire adjacent Parcel W-60B within the WRSP and expand the proposed Complex. Although environmental review has been completed for a portion of the Proposed Project (6 of the 10 fields), this Subsequent Initial Study evaluates the entire project (full buildout of 10 fields and all related accessories) to accurately disclose, assess, and mitigate potential environmental impacts of the Proposed Project.
