Porterville Developmental Center Residence 8 and 9 Patio Replacements
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The proposed project seeks the replacement of two paved patios and associated fencing necessary to maintain a working facility. The existing patio paving consists of a mix of asphalt concrete and Portland cement slabs. The new patios will consist only of Portland cement and will include new accessible ramps at building entry points. The new patios will match the footprints of those being removed and a color add mixture will be used to darken the new concrete so that it complements the historic district rather than detracting from it. The new chain link fencing will also be in the same locations and very similar to that being removed but will include climbing prevention at the top half.
