Document Description
The Compton Community College District (District) proposes to construct student housing for homeless and low-income students at the Compton College Campus (proposed project). The District proposes to develop a 251-bed (151 units) student housing structure to house homeless and low-income students on a 2.82-acre site at the northeastern quadrant of the campus. The project will be funded through the State’s Student Housing Grant. Phase 1 development would include soil mitigation (deep soil mixing), installation of underground utilities and rough grading. Phase 2 of the project would include a 3-story structure totaling 90,422 square feet and 45 feet high, that would contain 50 two-bed units without in-suite bathrooms totaling 100 beds; 50 two-bed units with in-suite bathrooms totaling 100 beds; and 51 one-bed studio units for a combined total of 251 beds in 151 units as well as study lounges, shared kitchens, shared bathrooms, lobby, shared laundry, and an office. One of the studio units would be reserved for a resident director. Parking would consist of 6 new stalls with striping, for loading and unloading. Other site improvements would include new utility service connections and additional hardscape and landscape improvements along the north, south, west, and east sides of the buildings. Vehicular access to the east end and north end of the facility’s parking lot/circulation aisle would be provided from Main Campus Drive and South Campus Drive. Main Campus Drive and South Campus Drive are supported by three-way stop signs. Parking for the students would be provided on the north and east side of the project site. One new van ADA stall, and five loading and unloading parking stalls would be added to Parking Lot F. No changes are proposed to the access and circulation of the parking lots. Construction is targeted to begin in June 2024 with a target completion date of August 2026. All construction equipment and workers will be within the boundaries of the project site, and contractors will adhere to construction noise regulations. Certain utility and street infrastructure as well as trees would be removed, and the remaining infrastructure and adjacent trees would be protected during project construction.
