CU-010-18 & SNRP-001-19: Glencoe High School Site Improvements & Addition
Notice of Public Hearing
There are two applications associated with the proposed project, which entails a variety of improvements to Glencoe High School. Seismic and safety upgrades to existing school buildings, multiple building additions (new classroom wing, weight room and team room), a new main entrance, renovations to Career Technical Education classrooms, improvements to teacher and student parking lots, and half-street improvements on NW Glencoe Road, as well as Major Adjustments to the required number of vehicle and bicycle parking spaces, will be considered under a consolidated Conditional Use and Development Review application. Proposed expansions of the southern parking lot and cafeteria involve encroachments into a significant upland forest SNR on the site by 4,853 square feet and SNR Impact Area (buffer) by 10,239 square feet; these encroachments and associated mitigation will be reviewed under a second application, a Significant Natural Resource (SNR) permit. The applicant proposes to mitigate the SNR encroachments by enhancing 24,798 square feet of upland forest by removing non-native/invasive plants and planting the area with native trees, shrubs, and groundcover.
