Beckman High School Field Lighting Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The District plans to add lights to the existing practice football/soccer field on the Beckman High School campus. The lights will expand the availability of field space by extending use into evening hours, ending by 10 PM. Lighting plans have been developed to provide an average of 30 foot-candles (fc), which reflects the intent to provide general practice space. The project is limited to lighting of the field and excludes adding bleachers, public address system, or ancillary buildings. The primary use will be students’ athletic activities. Community use would be allowed, but under District policy and consistent with the Civic Center Act.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 3, CCR 15303; Class 4, CCR 15304; Class 14 CCR 15314
Reasons for Exemption
Class 3, CCR 15303, New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures; Class 4, CCR 15304, Minor Additions to Land; Class 14 CCR 15314, Minor Additions to Schools.The proposed project involves the addition of lights to the existing practice football/soccer field on the Beckman High School campus .. All construction would occur within the boundaries of the existing campus, and the proposed project would not expand the campus. The proposed lighting of the existing practice football/soccer field on the Beckman High School campus would not increase student capacity. No off-campus improvements would occur. Existing use of the facility as a high school will stay the same under the proposed project. Therefore, the project is exempt from CEQA under Sections 15303, 15304, 15311, and 15314. The proposed project was also reviewed for possible exceptions under Section 15300.2 and found that the exceptions do not apply
