Franklin Adult School Parking Lot B Exterior Lighting

NEG - Negative Declaration

Document Description
The Berkeley Unified School District, the project sponsor, is considering constructing ten outdoor lighting fixtures in Parking Lot B of Franklin School, the future location of the BUSD Adult School. Franklin School is located at 1701 San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley, and Parking Lot B is contained within the school site, located on Curtis Street, between Virginia Street and Francisco Street. Parking Lot B is a 56-space surface parking lot that is currently under construction as part of the conversion of Franklin Elementary School for use as BUSD's Adult School. The proposed project would add ten outdoor lighting fixtures to Parking Lot B to illuminate the parking area during evening class hours. Other than lights needed for security purposes, all in Parking Lot B would be turned off and the parking lot secured, following the end of the evening class session (approximately 10:00 pm). Parking Lot B would be designated for primary use by Adult School faculty and staff. The proposed lighting fixtures would extend approximately 12 feet above the finished grade and require limited excavation, an approximate three-foot hole, for each light post. Some temporary trenching from either Building A or D to an approximate depth of 30 inches below the finished grade of the parking area would also be required to feed conduits to the light poles. The construction period would be expected to last no more than two months.
