Document Description
The project entails reconstruction of the west grandstand within the west wall of UC Berkeley's California memorial Stadium, interior program improvements, construction of a new press box, installation of permanent field lighting, landscape improvements, construction of an Athletic Service Center, surge use of Witter Field, and demolition of two historic buildings located at 2241 and 2243 College Avenue. The project is an element of the Southeast Campus Integrated Projects, the impacts of which we evaluated in the Southeast Campus Integrated Projects (SCIP) EIR (SCH#2005112056). Addendum #2 to the SCIP EIR was prepared to determine project conformance with the LRDP and to evaluate whether the project would cause any new significant environmental effect not considered in the LRDP EIR and SCIP EIR, increase the severity of any impact previously found significant in the LRDP EIR and SCIP EIR, new information of substantial importance which was not known at the time the LRDP EIR and SCIP EIR was certified has become available, or that the circumstances under which the SCIP is being implemented have changed to involve new significant environmental effects or substantially increase severity in environmental effects. The Addendum #2 concluded that the project is consistent with the SCIP and that none of the conditions requiring the preparation of subsequent or supplemental environmental review to the SCIP EIR are present.
