Land surrounding the project site is primarily single-family and multi-family residential, except for an office building north of Edison Avenue.

The Arden-Arcade Community Plan land use designation is RD-20/PQP (Public/Quasi-Public).
Document Description
The existing Arcade Middle School (originally constructed in 1938) would be demolished and the existing District-owned property would be redeveloped with a new, more modern school campus. The new school buildings would be located at the southern end of the property, where one of the outdoor turf playfields is currently located. Approximately 59,000 square feet of new building space would be constructed. New parking would be provided south of Edison Avenue. The proposed project also includes improvements to on-site sewer, water, wastewater, and electrical systems, as necessary, in coordination with the current utility service providers to support modernization of the campus.
