The proposed project involves conversion of the use of the existing Plover Library on the Santa Rosa Junior College campus to a center for Student Support Services. The site is located on the existing SRJC campus, and the conversion process will involve repartitioning of the interior space of the Plover building, including modification of electrical and plumbing systems. A new entrance will be installed on the south side of the building facing Elliott Avenue. The conversion will not increase the square footage of the building. The Student Support Services to be relocated to the Plover building currently occupy spaces elsewhere on the SRJC campus. The conversion process will not include construction of any new classrooms and the project will have no impact on the College's student enrollment capacity. The proposed use of the Plover building is consistent with the City of Santa Rosa's General Plan land use designation for the site.
The project is exempt because it predominantly involves alterations of interior partitions, plumbing and electrical services within the Plover building on the SRJC campus. All necessary public utility services are available to the site. The project will not result in any increase in enrollment capacity for the college.
