Document Description
The District proposes to add competitive sports lighting to the existing varsity baseball and softball fields (ballfields) at Del Norte High School. Sports lighting would consist of eight galvanized steel poles between 70 ft to 90 ft tall on the varsity baseball field and six 60-ft- and 70-ft-tall poles on the softball field, with LED luminaires mounted at various heights. The proposed sports lighting project would allow extended use of the ballfields into evening hours by both students and the general public. Both ballfields are currently being used by the students from 2:00 pm to 6:30 pm for practices and games, with up to 35 participants during practices and 60 participants and 80 spectators for games. The proposed sports lighting project is not anticipated to change the number of practices and games but would extend the hours of use until 8:00 pm on weekdays for practices from February to June, and 9:00 pm on weekdays from August to December. Weekend use of the ballfields would not change from the existing conditions except for special occasions pursuant to the District’s facilities-use policy. The number of participants and spectators at any given day are not anticipated to change. The proposed project would require limited ground disturbance to install light poles. No structural demolition would be required.
