AQUÍ SE AVISA que el Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Diego (el Distrito), como agencia líder, está circulando para revisión pública el borrador de una Declaración Negativa Mitigada (en inglés MND) de acuerdo con el Decreto de Calidad Ambiental de California (en inglés CEQA) para el Proyecto de Modernización de Todo el Plantel (en inglés WSM) propuesto para la Escuela Grant K-8.

Título del Proyecto: Proyecto de Modernización de Todo el Plantel de la Escuela Grant K-8

Ubicación del Proyecto: El sitio del proyecto está ubicado en el #1425 de Washington Place, San Diego, CA 92103, y dentro de la Zona de Planificación de la Comunidad de Uptown. Los usos del suelo de la zona son predominantemente residenciales, pero también incluyen espacios abiertos. El sitio del proyecto está delimitado por unidades residenciales unifamiliares y multifamiliares al norte y al este, al oeste el Parque Pioneer, y al sur un cañón de espacio abierto y la Calle Washington. El uso del sitio del proyecto está designado en el Plan General para “el plantel escolar existente” y su zonificación es residencial (RS-1-7).

Descripción del Proyecto: El distrito propone una modernización de todo el plantel (WSM) en el terreno de la Escuela Grant K-8, que se implementaría en cuatro fases en un período de aproximadamente 20 años. La propuesta WSM reemplazaría un número de viejos edificios existentes en el plantel y también incluiría la construcción de nuevas aulas, instalaciones deportivas y administrativas, así como varias otras mejoras.

Las capacidad de inscripciones existentes es de aproximadamente 768 alumnos con 35 aulas. No obstante, deberá advertirse que actualmente la escuela no está funcionando a su capacidad total de inscripciones. Las inscripciones existentes en la Escuela Grant, K- 8º, son de 717 alumnos (año escolar 2014-2015). La propuesta WSM del plantel existente reemplazaría las aulas existentes con nuevas aulas modernizadas y no habría un cambio neto en el número de aulas. Al terminar la modernización, la capacidad de inscripciones sería de aproximadamente 770 alumnos con 35 aulas. Si bien la capacidad estimada de inscripciones aumentaría mínimamente (menos del 1%), las inscripciones futuras que se proyectan para la escuela serían de menos de 770 alumnos. Como tal, el proyecto que se propone no aumentaría la capacidad existente de la escuela ni el número neto de aulas.

Disponibilidad: el borrador de la Declaración MND puede revisarse en las siguientes ubicaciones:

▪ Biblioteca de la Ciudad de San Diego, Sucursal Mission Hills, #925 de la Calle W. Washington, San Diego, CA 92103;
