NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT A
MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION

Project: Patriot High School Stadium Improvement Project
Lead Agency: Jurupa Unified School District
Applicant: Jurupa Unified School District
Review Period: August 30, 2023 to September 28, 2023 (30 days)

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Jurupa Unified School District (JUSD) has prepared an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the Patriot High School Stadium Improvement project. Pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21165 and the California Environmental Quality Act Guidelines (CEQA Guidelines) Section 15050, the Jurupa Unified School District is the lead agency for the project. The purpose of this notice is to (1) serve as a Notice of Intent (NOI) to adopt the IS/MND and (2) advise and solicit comments regarding the content of the IS/MND. 

PROJECT LOCATION: The project site is on the southern side of the existing Patriot High School (Patriot HS) campus located at 4355 Camino Real in the City of Jurupa Valley. The Patriot HS campus is bound by Mission Boulevard to the north, Camino Real and single-family residential uses to the east, Jurupa Road to the south, and Bethel Road and Garth Street to the west. See Figures 1, Regional Location, and 2, Aerial Photograph. 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The stadium improvements would be constructed in three phases. The proposed project would construct new stadium lights, a new scoreboard, new home and visitor bleachers, a 3,000 square foot concession/restroom building, and a metal screen. The bleacher capacity would increase from 585 seats to 3,530 seats (combined home and visitor bleachers). The new stadium lighting would be installed surrounding the track and field and the varsity baseball field. The proposed project would generate an additional 20 events per season (60 events per year) at the stadium and up to an additional 15 events on the varsity baseball field. 

ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINATION: The JUSD has prepared an Initial Study to determine the proposed project’s potential impact on the environment. The JUSD has determined that the proposed project may have a significant effect on the environment, but by implementing the identified mitigation measures, the proposed project's impacts could be reduced to less than significant levels. Accordingly, the JUSD intends to adopt an MND. 

PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT: The JUSD invites you to comment on the IS/MND. The IS/MND will be available for a 30-day public review from August 30, 2023, through September 28, 2023. We ask that any person wishing to comment on the IS/MND provide written comments by the end of the public review period at 5:00 p.m., September 28, 2023.
