Document Description
Los Banos Unified School District is proposing to construct and operate the Transitional Kindergarten Center Project. The purpose of the project is to serve TK students in the District as a result of the implementation of universal TK in California. The project site is located on approximately 4.58 acres at the southwest corner of East B Street and Place Road in the City of Los Banos, Merced County, California. The site consists of vacant undeveloped land located at the northern end of a 28.3-acre parcel (APN 428-030-022). The Los Banos Junior High School campus is located immediately to the south of the project site on the same parcel. Facilities proposed as part of the project include five classroom buildings, an office/multi-purpose building, playground areas with shade structures, grass-turfed play areas, and other related hardscape and landscape features. Four of the five classroom buildings will contain four classrooms, and one of the buildings will include three classrooms and a student services room. Each of the classroom buildings will include two shared restroom/workroom areas. The total number of classrooms is 19, of which 15 will be used for TK students and four will be used for Pre-K students. The project will also include construction of a staff parking lot with bus drop-off/loading area, and a parent/visitor parking lot with drop-off area. Access to the staff parking lot and bus drop-off area will be provided from East B Street. The entrance to the parent/visitor parking lot and drop-off area will be provided from East B Street and parent/visitor traffic must exit on Place Road, limited to right turn (southbound) movements. If approved, construction of the project will begin in Fall 2023 and is anticipated to be completed and operational by August 2024.
