The need for the proposed project is based on population growth and increased residential and commercial development in the City of Dublin, which has caused the District’s school facilities to exceed capacity. The proposed comprehensive high school would be the District’s third high school, and second comprehensive high school in the City of Dublin. The proposed school would consist of classrooms, education and administration-related indoor spaces, as well as outdoor physical education, instructional and recreational components. It would include 559 onsite surface parking spaces and internal drop-off and passing lanes designed for onsite traffic flow and reduced queuing at school entrances. Construction of the proposed project would occur on a total of approximately 23.46 acres. The new comprehensive high school is planned to ultimately accommodate approximately 2,545 students and will be built in two phases (Phase I and Phase II). Project phases would include:
• Phase I: Will accommodate 1,308 students, and will consist of the construction of a 30,110 square foot administration building and kitchen, a 13,811 square foot student union, a 21,004 square foot library, a 31,898 square foot gymnasium, a 17,597 square foot locker room, a 79,673 square foot academy, 18,563 square feet of Visual and Performing Arts Guidance (VAPA) classrooms, a 55,493 square foot all-weather track with drainage, a 96,837 square foot synthetic field with drainage, four overhead field lights, and eight tennis courts consisting of 60,719 square feet.
• Phase II: Will accommodate the remaining 1,237 students, and will consist of a second 79,630 square foot academy, a 31,131 square foot theatre, a 831 square foot orchestra pit, a 4,800 square feet maintenance building for the pool, a 1,768 square foot maintenance building, 3,439 square feet of concessions/restrooms, a 34,506 square foot aquatic complex, 12,733 square feet of 4,000 seat bleachers, and a 135 stall parking garage consisting of 65,529 square feet.
