UC Berkeley proposes the conversion of an existing recreational softball field to a recreational and Intercollegiate Athletic (IA) beach volleyball facility to improve the training and competition facilities provided to female student athletes, support ongoing gender equity, and comply with Title IX. The facility would include four beach volleyball courts and a 3,710-square-foot support building with team rooms, locker rooms, restrooms, and coaches’ offices and storage. Improvements to the site would include new lighting, a scoreboard, a public address system, and a refurbished lawn area for spectators to watch matches. In addition, the project would demolish an approximately 9,230-square-foot portion of Building 21, the former Wilkinson Lodge, which is a contributor to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) District No. 82000962 State Asylum for the Deaf, Dumb, and Blind, which is comprised of the Clark Kerr Campus (CKC). The partial demolition of Building 21 addresses the seismic safety risk posed by the building in order to comply with the University of California Seismic Safety Policy. It also complies with the 1982 Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions (Covenants) that UC Berkeley entered into with neighbors of CKC. After demolition, the area would be landscaped and a new driveway to Building 21 would be paved to allow for loading. The existing western portion of the building would remain and continue to be used for storage. The existing recreational softball uses would be accommodated off site at the softball field on UC Berkeley’s Hill Campus and the existing archery and other recreational uses would be accommodated on site at the proposed beach volleyball courts or at other CKC recreational facilities. After project implementation, the two existing CKC recreational sand courts would remain available for community use during daylight hours and would be managed by the Recreational Sports Department.
