Alternative Education Relocation and Grass Parking/Physical Education/Athletic Field Expansion Project
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
PLU: Grape vineyards
Z: RCO (Resource Conservation, Public Use and Open Space Zone District)
GP: Public Facilities
The potential project consists of the following: 1) relocation of an existing modular classroom building used for the District's alternative education program from its current location at Marshall Elementary School to the potential project site and construction of a new snack bar/restroom facility; 2) construction of a new grass parking/physical education/athletic fields; and 3) expansion of the Fowler High School agricultural education facility after a state grant is successfully acquired. The potential project site consists of two separate areas. The alternative education relocation and grass parking/physical education/athletic field expansion area consists of ~5.4 acres and is located south of Adams Avenue and immediately east of the Fowler High School football stadium.
The proposed physical education/athletic fields would be used primarily by high school and community youth sports programs for practice. The softball field located furthest south would be used for Fowler High School J.V. softball games. Lighting is proposed for the physical education/athletic fields and will be designed to minimize impacts on adjacent properties. It is anticipated that evening use of the facilities will occur 2 to 3 nights a week.
