Document Description
The project includes the redevelopment of approximately 1.44 acres of the project site. Four existing modular buildings on the west side of the project site would be replaced with a two-story, 16,410 square foot classroom/administration building with two subterranean levels, one for parking and a second for storage. A new synagogue with 2,013 square feet of above-ground floor area and a basement would be developed immediately east of the proposed two-story building, on a previously graded pad north of the existing parking lot. The surface parking lot would be redeveloped to improve internal circulation and parking. A stormwater management system and a second onsite wastewater treatment system to accommodate stormwater runoff and wastewater from the new buildings. The project would also include new landscaping and habitat restoration/fuel modification on the north-facing slope of Puerco Canyon.
