Document Description
The SOCCCD Board of Trustees of certified the PEIR for the 2011 Facilities Master Plan (FMP) for Saddleback College and the 2011 FMP for Irvine Valley College, as the environmental documentation for the two campuses' FMPs covering the period 2011 to 2031. Increase s of 6,110 full-time equivalent students; Addition of 838,510 gross sq. ft. of portable facilities then existing at the site; and A net increase of 1,790 parking spaces. The proposed project is a modification to the previously approved renovation of the TAS Building). The existing building is two stories and 36,600 GSF. The PEIR evaluated the renovation of this building. The district now proposes to demolish this building due to geotechnical and building structural issues that made renovation infeasible and to replace it with a new 2-story, 45,000 GSF structure, to be called the "ATAS Building," at a different location on the easterly side of Saddleback College campus. The new building location would be where there are currently six existing tennis courts. The tennis courts would be relocated to the south nearer other physical education and recreation facilities. Up to 52 parking spaces adjacent to the tennis courts may also be removed or relocated as part of the project; no replacement or new parking is planned in excess of that evaluated in the EIR, because the number of parking spaces after the removal of these spaces was determined by the district to be sufficient for the demand.
