Police Academy Replacement Training Facility (Archived)

Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration/Initial Study. CD 1. The proposed project would be located in the City of Los Angeles at the existing Los Angeles Police Academy (the “Academy”) at 1891 North Academy Drive in the Elysian Park area, approximately 1.7 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, adjacent to the Dodger Stadium parking lot in the Silver Lake-Echo Park-Elysian Valley Community Plan Area.

The City of Los Angeles (City) is proposing to construct a multi-level, 24,000-square-foot training facility on a sloped site adjacent to the private portion of Academy Drive and west of the existing Academy buildings. There are currently trailers and a tennis court at this location. The facility would provide flexible classroom space, office space, a conference room, and a break room, and would serve as a permanent training facility for officers and recruits. Training currently occurs in various trailer buildings on the Academy campus; the proposed project would replace these trailers. In addition, the project would provide three disabled parking spaces adjacent to the facility and 46 surface parking spaces on the southeastern portion of the campus. The facility would house the same complement of staff as present conditions. The proposed project would be funded with revenue from Proposition Q – the Citywide Public Safety Bond Measure approved by voters in 2002.

The City Council adopted a Mitigated Negative Declaration on December 12, 2012 and a Notice of Determination was filed with the Los Angeles County Clerk. (Council File 12-1812).
