Rancho Cienega Sports Complex Project Phase I and II

Mitigated Negative Declaration/Initial Study (MND/IS) for the CEQA Notice of Intent and Initial Study for the Rancho Cienega Sports Complex Project. The proposed Rancho Cienega Sports Complex Project (proposed project) includes the development of an upgraded and expanded sports complex. The proposed project would construct a new 30,000 square-foot sports complex that would include a new indoor pool and bathhouse with a community room and fitness annex on the second floor; a new indoor gymnasium with office space, a running path, and a lookout deck on the second floor; a new tennis shop with restrooms and tennis overlook; a new stadium overlook with a concession stand, restrooms and a ticket office; installation of new driveways; and upgrades to existing parking areas. The proposed project would also renovate the existing City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks (RAP) maintenance yard and building as well as the existing refuse collection. Other site improvements include upgrades to existing parking, security lighting, additional stormwater and drainage infrastructure, landscaping, and hardscaping. The proposed project would be designed and constructed to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Silver designation.
