Notice of Availability
of an Environmental Impact Report
Menifee Valley Campus
Notice: Pursuant to the State of California Public Resources Code
Section 21165 and the Guidelines for Implementation of the California
Environmental Quality Act as amended to date, notice is hereby given that the Mt.
San Jacinto Community College District (MSJCCD), as Lead Agency, is circulating
for public review a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Menifee Valley
Campus Master Plan.
Title: Menifee Valley Campus Master Plan
Location: The Menifee Valley Campus (MVC or Campus) is located at
28237 La Piedra Road, in the City of Menifee, County of Riverside, California (Assessor
Parcel Numbers 364-070-031 and 364-070-032).
Description: MSJCCD is proposing to renovate
and improve the existing MVC in two phases to accommodate additional 4,398 full
time equivalent students (FTE) or approximately 15,000 to 20,000 headcount
students at full buildout. The full buildout is anticipated to occur over
10-year time frame in multiple stages in two development phases.
Phase I development would demolish 24,032 square feet of
building area and construct 256,958 square feet of new building area in six
stages. New buildings include math science building, student services building,
performing arts building, allied health building, campus police building,
facilities/maintenance and operations building, and three modular clusters. The
total building area after completion of Phase I would be 482,021 square feet
and total 2,168 parking spaces. Phase I would also include a 7,000-seat football
stadium and field house.
Phase II development would involve development of a
multi-disciplinary instructional building, student center, and gymnasium totaling
133,200 square feet of building area and removal of 20 modular buildings
totaling 24,060 square feet. Therefore, the total building area at full
buildout would be 591,161 square feet. Additionally, Phase II would construct
two parking structures (249,320-sq.ft. parking structure west and
162,080-sq.ft. parking structure east), practice sports field, tennis courts, and
modify existing parking lots to remove 1,217 spaces and add 2,500 spaces.
The Proposed Project also includes installation of complete
system of emergency power consisting of one diesel engine-driven generator,
including fuel tank and diesel particulate filter, adjacent to the existing
Building #400 (humanities & social sciences building).
Phase I of the MVC improvements are anticipated to be
completed by 2025, and Phase II (full buildout) would be completed pending the
availability of future funding.
