HOMESTEAD TRACKS AND FIELDS PROJECT
The District proposes to install sports field lighting at the new main field and track at Homestead High School ("proposed project"). As required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), a Draft Initial Study (DIS) for the proposed project was completed and the DIS was available for public review and comment from August 3, 2010 through September 1, 2010.
As proposed, the project would allow sports lighting to be used according to the following basic schedule. Occasional unique events, such as a band competition, are also included in the allowed use:
|Late August to Mid-November|
Monday through Thursday
Friday and Saturday
*Band practice will end at 8:00PM, but lights will remain on until 8:30PM while the band instruments
Mid-November to End-of-March
Monday through Friday
Saturday and Sunday
April 1 to Late August
Subject to comments received from the public and other state, regional, and local agencies, the District intends to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND). An MND declares that the proposed project, in conjunction with the proposed mitigations, will not result in any significant environmental impacts.
The District's Board of Trustees currently expects to review comments and act on the adoption of the MND at the Board meeting scheduled for September 7, 2010, which will be held at the District Office. The meeting agenda will be posted on the District website no later than Friday, September 3.
