The applicant is requesting a new use permit and an amendment to the existing reclamation plan to build and operate a new campus and equipment training activities. This new use permit along with the reclamation plan amendment would replace the existing mining use permit on the subject property. The new campus and training center includes the following: 1) construction and operation of a new campus facility (without dormitory); and 2) allowance for field instruction with construction equipment on the property. The project will include the relocation of existing classrooms and equipment training from the Rancho Murieta Training Center.
The field instruction area will cover 435 acres; however, only 80 acres will be actively disturbed at one time. The applicant proposes a five year rotation cycle, so that the land can rest and revegetate.
