Document Description
The University of California, Santa Barbara proposes to install a 24-foot diameter canvas clad structure with a maximum height of 14 feet at the center (yurt). The yurt is a pre-engineered modular structure purchased in components and would not be connected to any utilities and would not require electricity, gas, water, or sewer. An American Disabilities Act (ADA) ramp would be attached for access into the yurt. A stone pathway would be installed from the sidewalk to the ramp. The yurt has a wooden lath interior which supports for the canvas skin. The yurt would be installed in a vacant lawn area adjacent to the north side of the Student Health building and parking. The total site area is 1,200 square feet and the yurt footprint is 452 square feet.
