El Dorado High School Field Lights Project

The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) is in the process of evaluating the feasibility of installing permanent field lights at El Dorado High School on the field located on the northwest corner of the property. The school currently uses electric-powered portable lights for student-related activities on the field. It is important to note that a project of this scope and complexity requires a long list of items to be prepared and requirements to be met before work may begin. 

As such, in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines, the school district must first prepare a Notice of Preparation (NOP) to provide agencies, organizations, and interested parties with information describing the proposed project and its potential environmental effects. A copy of the full NOP is available to view below. The document is also being distributed to residents and businesses in the vicinity of the school.

As authorized by the CEQA, the district determined, based on a preliminary review, that it would also prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed project. Accordingly, the District is initiating the EIR process and will focus on potentially significant effects of the project in the EIR. 

Pursuant to established CEQA guidelines, responsible agencies and interested parties may submit any comments in response to this notice no later than 30 days after receipt. The public review period will commence today, April 29, 2022, and will close on May 30, 2022. Any person wishing to comment on the NOP may provide written comments by the end of the public review period at 5:00 p.m. on May 30 by using the form below.

Next, the district will hold a scoping meeting in conjunction with the NOP in order to present the project and the EIR process and to provide an opportunity for agency representatives and the public to assist the lead agency in determining the scope and content of the environmental analysis for the EIR. “Scope and content” refers to the environmental issues that should be addressed in the EIR, such as lighting, noise, and traffic. Interested parties are invited to attend the scoping meeting at the time and location presented below:

Meeting Date: May 24, 2022

Time: 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Location: Gai Jones Theater at El Dorado High School
1651 Valencia Ave., Placentia, CA 92870
