A proposal to construct a 12,800-square-foot recreation facility on approximate 4.9-acres. The facility is to contain a full-size boxing ring with bleachers and workout space, a multi-purpose room, meeting rooms, a kitchen, restrooms, and office space (less than 5%). Activities to be accommodated include exercise, computer training, mentoring, educational classes, socialization, and other similar recreational functions. The building will also serve as an emergency cooling center on hot days. The remainder of the site will include an adjacent handball court and dog park (surfaced with decomposed granite and turf). The project is being proposed in conjunction with Safe Drinking Water, Water Quality and Supply, Flood Control, River and Coastal Protection Bond Act of 2006 (Proposition 84) grant program administered by the State Department of Parks and Recreation.
The proposed recreational facility is exempt from CEQA in accordance with Section 15332 of the CEQA Guidelines in that there is no possibility that the project would have any potential significant effect on the environment. The project site is less than five acres in size; is adjacent to an existing recreational facility and existing urban development; is served by all required utilities and public services; has no value as habitat for endangered, rare, or threatened species; and will not result in any significant traffic, noise, air quality or water quality impacts.
