Harvard-Westlake River Park Project EIR Notice of Determination for:
Redevelopment of a 17.2 acre site for use as an athletic and recreational facility for the Harvard-Westlake School (a private school for grades 7-12) and for shared public use. The Project proposes the removal of an existing golf course, driving range, and tennis facility, to develop the following facilities: two athletic fields with bleacher seating, an 80,249 square foot, two-story gymnasium with a maximum height of 30 feet, a 52-meter swimming pool with seating, eight tennis courts with seating, one level of below-grade parking and a surface parking lot. The Project would include ancillary field buildings, three security kiosks, exterior light poles, walls/fencing, and retention of the existing clubhouse structure, putting green, low brick retaining wall with weeping mortar, and golf ball-shaped light standards. The Project would remove 215 existing trees and plant 368 new trees, include a 350,000-gallon stormwater capture and reuse system, provide 5.4 acres (235,224 square feet) of publicly accessible open space and landscaped pathways connecting to the adjacent Zev Greenway, and provide on-site landscaped areas and recreational facilities. The Project involves off-site improvements to the Valleyheart Drive public right-of-way and portions of the adjacent Zev Greenway. Project development would require excavation and grading to a maximum depth of 21 feet below grade and a net cut/fill volume of 197,000 cubic yards. The Project is located at 4047-4155 North Whitsett Avenue, 12506-12630 West Valley Spring Lane, and a portion of APN 2375-018-903.
