Report Summary

Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration No. 08-12 analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with a proposal to subdivide the 8.35-acre former Wardlow School site to accommodate 49 lots for new detached single-family homes. All existing school buildings and site improvements are proposed to be demolished with the project. The project is proposed as a Planned Unit Development (PUD) utilizing varying lot sizes at approximately 4,250 sq. ft. (50 feet wide by 85 feet deep). The project is adjacent to the City's Wardlow Park. The project is proposing to dedicate 0.82 acres of land and construct a new landscaped parking lot with up to 80 onsite spaces, which will be incorporated into the adjacent Wardlow Park. The project includes water quality and storm drain improvements, including construction of 1,905 feet of storm drain, replacement of the existing snack bar and fencing, and lighting improvements.
