Proposed Elementary School Site Located at Mesa Drive and Eleanor Avenue, Riverbank, Stanislaus County, California
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Undeveloped land owned by the RUSD since 1965. The land was purchased by the RUSD with the intention of completing a school project as population in the area increased. The site is zoned agricultural and designated by the General Plan as A-2-3. However, past agricultural uses existed on the property, prior to the RUSD's ownership, more than 40 years ago.

Document Description
The RUSD has an immediate need to construct a new elementary school (preK-5) to accommodate population growth in the region. The site is located southeast of the intersection of Eleanor Avenue and Mesa Drive. Currently the subject property is composed of 9.18 acres of vacant land. It is anticipated that the proposed school would likely have an eventual student enrollment of about 600 students. This student population will be derived from the influx of homebuyers moving into the RUSD area. Typical school buildings and uses will include classrooms, administrative offices, playgrounds, library, parking (for teachers and staff, visitors), internal circulation roads, and landscaping. The buildings will be one-story, wood and concrete framed buildings.
