Document Description
The proposed Project is designed to address the most critical physical concerns of the buildings and grounds at the campus through building replacement, renovation, and modernization to provide facilities that are safe, secure, and better aligned with the current instructional program. The proposed Project includes demolishing eight permanent buildings, removing existing portable buildings, constructing new permanent buildings that provide adequate learning spaces and support areas, upgrading and replacing aging utilities and infrastructure, improving existing athletic facilities, and providing new landscaping and hardscaping. The proposed Project also includes limited modernization of existing structures including accessible facilities consistent with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, seismic retrofit pursuant to California Assembly Bill 300, and low voltage upgrades to support current technology. The PEA-E presents the findings of the site assessment investigations performed for this proposed Project. The campus is not on any of the lists compiled under Government Code Section 65926.5.
