Document Description
As proposed by the City of Irvine, the project involves an expansion and renovation of the Irvine Animal Care Center (IACC) and Operation Support Facility (OSF) and associated site features and improvements. Under the proposed project, the IACC expansion and renovation plans include an addition to the existing administration building (new entry building), a new clinic building, and an in-fill administration building addition. Also, renovation work is proposed for the existing IACC administration building, cats/small animals housing building, and kennel buildings. Other proposed IACC site improvements include modifications to the existing secured parking area, addition of a trash enclosure, re-grading and addition of drains for better site drainage and storm water treatment, facility entrance modifications, new activity yards, and miscellaneous landscaping. The OSF expansion and renovation plans consist of the addition of new metal structures and interior remodels of existing buildings. The OSF plans includes removal of four pre-engineered/-fabricated metal structures and the addition of two pre-engineered-/-fabricated metal structures for material storage. Also, the existing compressed natural gas and gas/diesel fueling islands would be relocated to a new location within the area of the project site currently housing the dog park. As a part of the project the existing dog park would be removed and relocated to the Oak Creek Community Park, which is in the process of undergoing an expansion and improvement plan that is being processed separately by the City. Once the new dog park at Oak Creek Community Park is constructed and operational, the existing dog park at the project site would be removed and replaced with a new surface parking area for City vehicles. Other proposed OSF site improvements include modifications to the existing secured parking areas, reconfiguration and optimization of the onsite circulation for better traffic flow, new and improved yard lighting, and miscellaneous hardscape and landscape improvements.
