Document Description
The District plans to permanently light the tennis courts, baseball field, softball field, and soccer field at Garden Grove High School by installing 16 light poles. Additionally, the District plans to temporarily light the softball field at Lake Intermediate School as the Garden Grove High School softball team will travel to Lake Intermediate for practice and games during the construction phase of the project. Depending on availability, the lights may be LED or Metal Halide on light poles with wheels. Once the permanent lights at Garden Grove High School have been installed, the temporary lights at Lake Intermediate School will be removed. The proposed lighting improvements are prompted by the passage of Senate Bill (SB) 328, which requires high schools to start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. The proposed sports lighting project would allow extended use of the listed athletic facilities into evening hours for the benefit of existing students. Sports lighting would consist of concrete bases with galvanized steel poles between 50 and 90 feet tall, with LED luminaires mounted at heights ranging from 16 feet to 80 feet. Construction of the sports lights is anticipated to take five months and is scheduled to start on March 1, 2023, and finish by August 30, 2023
