Rocketship Redwood City Elementary School Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The site is currently developed with an approximately 23,200 sf, one story warehouse structure within the City boundaries and an associated surface parking lot and metal storage shed within the County boundaries. The project sponsor proposes to convert the site into a public TK-5 charter elementary school, which would be operated by Rocketship Education. Associated improvements include new landscaping and playground areas and modifications to existing site access, circulation and parking. The proposed school would have a max enrollment of 480 students when it is fully operational. The proposed project also includes installation and operation of an active sub-slab depressurization system to eliminate the exposure pathway between contaminated soil vapors and indoor air sensitive receptors and inhibit soil gases from flowing into the building, thereby ensuring that indoor air concentrations of VOCs related to the underlying subsurface conditions are reduced to an acceptable level. Operation of this system would be conducted under DTSC oversight.
