Document Description
The proposed project consists of the construction of a performing arts center that will be known as the Bonita Center for the Arts (BCA), on the west side of the west side of the existing San Dimas High School campus. The footprint of the BCA will replace and occupy the school's southern parking lot. The project includes construction of a building that is approximately 25,000 square feet in size, and 75 feet tall at its highest point (top of parapet). The BCA will provide seating for approximately 700 people. The building also features an amphitheatre that is connected to the northeast side of the building. The amphitheatre will be designed to seat approximately 100 people. Two new parking areas will occupy 4,000 square feet of the project site on the south and east sides of the building. In addition, a new staff parking lot (36,360 square feet) will be constructed at the northeast corner of the school property on which is now an undeveloped landscaped portion of the school. The BCA will be used by all grade levels. If there is a demand for amateur and community theatre group performances at the BCA, it may be rented out on an as needed basis. Construction of the staff parking lot is anticipated to start in June 2012, with the BCA beginning in March 2012. Construction is anticipated to terminate in July 2013.
