Will the athletic field disrupt the neighborhood?
Lighting towers as high as 87 feet tall will undoubtedly bother nearby neighbors. But even hillside residents up and across the canyon will have a new eyesore to ruin their canyon views. Proposed “mitigation” trees along Coldwater will not hide this 3-story structure from hundreds of residents up the eastern hillside — the structure would need retaining walls that reach 90 ft high (three times higher than the hillside limit).
Wildlife will be affected all the way to the Mulholland Corridor (only 34 feet away from the outer corridor). The school even wants to use the proposed practice field after dark and on Saturdays and weekday holidays. (They already loan out their existing field, yet they say they “need” another?!)
