Document Description
Clovis Unified School District is proposing to install lighting facilities at the Kastner Intermediate School campus in order to allow for existing campus activities to take place at later hours and improve visibility during low-light conditions. The project is located on approximately 5.0 acres at southwest corner of the Kastner Intermediate School campus, located at 7676 N. First Street, near the northeast corner of First Street and Alluvial Avenue in the City of Fresno. The site currently includes a grass-turfed athletic field used for football and other field sports, a rubberized running track plus other track-and-field facilities, aluminum bleacher seating areas, and areas landscaped with grass and trees. The facilities are currently utilized for physical education as well as extracurricular athletic activities and events, which occur on weekdays and Saturdays. Facilities included as part of the project consist of four 80-foot-tall poles with LED lighting equipment, which would be installed at four different points around the perimeter of the existing field (two on the east side of the field, and two on the west side of the field). Each pole would be equipped with ten total pieces of lighting equipment (two mounted at 15.5 feet, one mounted at 60 feet, and seven mounted at 80 feet). The project’s state-of-the-art lighting equipment is designed to be very focused and directional such that there is little or no light trespass beyond the school property. The District will operate the lights as needed to accommodate activities occurring on the site and will cease lighting operations as soon as possible. The use of the lighting will in no event extend past 10:00 pm, and in most instances, the activities will cease substantially before 10:00 pm. If approved, project construction and equipment installation activities are anticipated to occur in Fall 2022 for a period of two-to-three weeks, and operation of the lights would begin in late 2022.
