Notice of Availability and
Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration
for Hesperia Recreation and Park District
Lime Street Park Project
The Hesperia Recreation and Park District (District) has prepared an Initial Study for the Lime Street Park Project, which recommends that a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) be issued, and the District has authorized the release of the proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration for public review and comment for the above project.
The Hesperia Recreation and Park District (District) is proposing to implement improvements at its Lime Street Park. This is an existing District park with extensive recreation facilities that include, but are not limited to, four baseball fields, swimming pool, tennis courts and a community center with an adjacent playground. The park land currently includes two extensive open areas (graded and compacted dirt with no vegetation) where it is proposing additional recreation facility improvements to enhance the recreation capacity of Lime Street Park. These proposed improvements include the installation of the following possible facilities: two new lighted baseball/softball fields (these fields will also function as multi-sport fields for soccer and football); expanded paved parking area and access; volleyball court; outdoor water recreation feature, such as a splash pad; and a pervious walking/jogging path throughout the improved park area. To fund the identified improvements, the District is seeking funds from California State Parks for the new facilities under a Proposition 68 Grant.
A copy of the Initial Study can be reviewed at the District’s office listed below, and at the following web address: https://www.hesperiaparks.com. The period of review will be from July 28, 2021, to August 26, 2021. Written comments on the Initial Study should be submitted to Mr. Nicholas Chavez at the address listed below no later than August 26, 2021 by 5:00 PM.
The District has not yet scheduled this matter before the Board to discuss and possibly adopt the Mitigated Negative Declaration and approve the project, but will notice the public when a Board Hearing date is scheduled. The technical and environmental issues related to this project may be discussed at this meeting. Please contact Mr. Nicholas Chavez if you have questions regarding the District’s review process for considering the Mitigated Negative Declaration.
