Most new equipment will be placed either on existing buildings or structures, or an 8-foot poles with solar panels and battery within the reserves to established adequate internet connectivity. Ground disturbing, when required, will consist of digging small holes using a hand auger. Project 9 (proposed by UC Santa Barbara): Construction at UC-Santa Barbara's Main Campus of two research greenhouses (2,700 square feet and 700 square feet, repectively) on an already developed site. An existing building will be demolished to build the larger greenhouse; the smaller greenhouse will be constructed on an adjacent, paved lot currently used for outdoor vehicle storage.
