Temple City High School Athletic Facilities Modernization Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Temple City Unified School District proposes to modernize the outdoor athletics facilities in the northern portion of the Temple City High School property. The existing track and field and varsity baseball field facilities would be upgraded to meet current program needs. A new field house with home and visitor team rooms, restroom facilities, and concessions; a sports medicine lab/weight training facility; and four tennis courts would also be constructed. Replacement nighttime field lights would be installed at the track and field, and new nighttime lights would be installed at the baseball field and tennis courts. The new lights would allow practices and games to extend beyond dusk and would satisfy modified program hours pursuant to Senate Bill 328, which requires all high schools to start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. and consequently extends after-school activities later into the evening. Proposed replacement bleachers installed at the track and field would increase seating capacity by 1,000 seats to accommodate attendees. The Project does not propose new athletic programs or sporting events at the campus.

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 4 and Class 14 (CEQA Guidelines Sections 15304 and 15314)
Reasons for Exemption
Class 4 applies as all areas disturbed by the Project would be restored with new structures, pavement, and/or landscaping. Several onsite trees would be removed; however, they are ornamental and are not protected or scenic resources.

The proposed sports medicine lab would result in an overall increase of one classroom (36 students, or a 1.4 percent increase in the school's current enrollment capacity) over existing conditions.
