Document Description
The proposed Project would include the replacement of existing outdoor athletic facilities on the Hawthorne High School campus (Campus) with new and improved facilities as well as the redevelopment of the Hawthorne Aquatics Facility. The athletic fields improvements include a new combined football/soccer field, upgraded track, and upgraded bleachers on the western portion of the athletic fields; a reconfigured baseball field, new basketball courts, and a 5,400 square-foot (sf) team room/concessions building on the central portion of the Campus; and a new softball field and a multi-use (soccer and football) field in the eastern portion of the athletic fields. The team room/concessions building would include a 465-sf concessions stand, a 950- sf team room with 32 lockers, a 910-sf team room with 30 lockers, a 730-sf training room, 1,525-sf of restrooms, and electric and storage facilities. Improvements would be made to the parking area in the southwestern corner of the Project site, and would include designating one parking stall as an Americans with Disabilities Act accessible parking space. The proposed Project would also replace and add new field lighting. The new LED lighting would be contained in fixtures that are pointed downward and fully shielded. New synthetic turf would be installed on the softball/multi-use field, outdoor football field, and baseball field in place of the existing natural grass and a new synthetic track would surround the outdoor football field. A new digital scoreboard would be installed on the northern portion of the football/soccer field. Bleachers would be replaced on the west and east side of the football/soccer field and track and would be improved with aluminum decking. The proposed Project would also upgrade the storm drain system and existing utilities on the Project site. The Governing Board of the District is acquiring the City-owned Hawthorne Aquatics Facility. The Hawthorne Aquatics Facility would include upgrades to the pool, pool deck, public seating, and locker rooms. However, there are no current plans for the extent of the renovation or redevelopment of the Hawthorne Aquatics Facility, as of right now. The Project site is not on any of the lists enumerated under section 65962.5 of the Government Code.
