Project Description: The proposed Laney College Library Learning Resource Center (proposed Project) would be located on the southeast part of the main campus on a site comprising approximately
52,058 square feet. The Project site currently contains a central plant, a single-story portable classroom building containing seven classrooms, one single story portable restroom building, lawn area and paved
pathways.

The Project would not increase student enrollment capacity at the Laney College campus. It is proposed in response to the District’s plan to provide a new campus library to meet current and future learning
needs. The Library Learning Resource Center (LRC) will be designed to achieve a minimum of LEED Gold certification. The building would contain about 71,800 gross square feet and would be three stories tall with an approximate height of 52 feet. The building exterior would include stucco, steel and glass.

Environmental Review: An Initial Study (IS) has been prepared under the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for review and action by PCCD. The IS evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the proposed Project. Based on the results of the IS prepared according to CEQA Guidelines, it has been determined the Project will not have a significant effect on the environment and a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) has been prepared. The Project has been modified to incorporate mitigation measures identified in the IS that will reduce potentially significant impacts to a less-than-significant level.
