The San Diego Unified School District (District) proposes to install one marquee sign at the Spreckels Elementary School campus. The marquee sign would be 5x9 feet (ft) (18"h Name over 42"h Display), single sided, covered with lexan, internally illuminated with LED electronic red color text, and mounted on two poles within the premises of the Spreckels Elementary School campus. The marquee sign would be located approximately 90 ft in distance from the nearest residence. Approximately 155 ft of trenching work would be required for the electrical writing for the marquee sign.
The purpose of the new, lighted, electronic marquee sign is to present information to the school attendees and the general public regarding the school's affair.
The marquee sign will include on/off/dimming controls provided by photocells, time clocks, and/or computer controls. The marquee sign will generally be off by 10:00 PM. The proposed marquee sign would not pose any significant effects to the adjacent residential neighborhood nor the surrounding environment.
The proposed marquee sign would be located within the premises of the existing school campus;
The proposed installation of the marquee sign would require minor trenching; however, trenching will occur within an existing disturbed portion of the school property;
The proposed project would serve the existing student population and would not increase student capacity;
The area within the surrounding the project site is not environmentally sensitive; and,
The project does not have the potential to trigger any of the exceptions identified in CEQA Guidelines § 15300.2.
