The project includes construction and operation of a 3,000-seat athletic stadium which would serve El Capitan High School’s athletic programs. Facilities planned as part of the project include bleacher seating, a natural turf competition field, a rubberized running track, a scoreboard, PA system, concessions, and restrooms (see Figure 3, Site Plan). The stadium would be lighted using state-of-the-art LED light fixtures mounted on four 90-foot-tall poles. The lighting would be designed and oriented to light the field and project areas adjacent to the field that need to be lighted with little or no light trespass on non-project areas. Additionally, the project includes landscaping features and new concrete-paved areas within the campus.
The project would operate year-round, with most activity occurring during the fall sports season. Games and practices would be scheduled on weekdays and weekends, and events would be scheduled during daytime and evening hours (not to exceed 10:00 p.m.). The project may also be utilized for hosting occasional non-athletic special events, such as pep rallies and graduation ceremonies.
If approved, the project is anticipated to begin construction in September 2023 and begin operation in September 2024.
