Title
College of the Desert West Valley Campus Master Plan & Phase 1 Project
Description
The previously approved West Valley Campus (WVC) project will be developed on 29+ acres currently occupied by the 332,000 + sq. ft. Palm Springs Mall. also located on the subject project are the Camelot Festival Theater and a free-standing fast food restaurant, both of which are to remain. The largely vacant mall building will be demolished to make way for the new campus. The Desert Community College District ("District") WVC Master Plan will provide approx. 330,000 sq. ft. of community college facilities, including a conference center and college or college/city joint-use library (the "Project"). On May 20, 2016, the District approved the Project and filed a Notice of Determination. The District has now made a minor change to the Project include a land lease agreement to allow for temporary classrooms structures to be located on the southeast corner of the Project site prior to Phase I development of the Master Plan. The proposed location of the temporary classrooms is currently used as a parking lot for the shopping center, and owned by the owner of the Camelot Theater. An addendum to the Final EIR is appropriate and in accordance with Public Resources Code section 21166 and CEQA section 15162 because the modifications to the project are minor and do not involve new significant environmental effects or a substantial increase in the severity of previously identified significant effects.
