ON-CAMPUS CIRCULATION IMPROVEMENT PROJECT MITIGATION MONITORING PROGRAM Prepared for Foothill-De Anza Community College District Prepared by PLACEMAKERS 1500 Park Avenue – Loft #310 Emeryville, California 94608 February 24, 2006On-Campus Circulation Improvement Project Mitigation Monitoring Program 1.0 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background Public Resources Code section 21081.6(a) requires all public agencies to adopt monitoring or reporting programs when they approve projects subject to Environmental Impact Reports (EIRs), Mitigated Negative Declarations or Negative Declarations that identify significant impacts. The reporting or monitoring program must be adopted when a public agency makes its findings for EIRs, Mitigated Negative Declarations or Negative Declarations so that the program can be made a condition of project approval in order to mitigate significant effects on the environment. The program must be designed to ensure compliance during project implementation to mitigate or avoid significant environmental effects. 1.2 Purpose This Mitigation Monitoring Program Checklist is designed to serve as a tool for the evaluation of project compliance with mitigation measures identified in the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the On-Campus Circulation Improvement Project. This document will be used by the Foothill-De Anza Community College District (District) to verify inclusion of required Project design features and implementation of mitigation measures. The Checklist serves as a summary so the District, other public agencies and the community can easily determine which measures have been complied with. 2.0 MITIGATION MONITORING PROGRAM CHECKLIST The Mitigation Monitoring Program Checklist is proposed for monitoring the implementation of the mitigation measures contained in the EIR and listed in the attached checklist. The District should implement the monitoring program as follows: • The De Anza College Vice President Finance and College Services is responsible for coordination of the monitoring program including the monitoring checklist. • Each responsible individual or agency will be responsible for determining whether the applicable mitigation measures contained within the checklist have been complied with. Once all mitigation measures have been complied with, the responsible individual or agency should submit a completed checklist to the De Anza College Vice President Finance and College Services.On-Campus Circulation Improvement Project Mitigation Monitoring Program Page 2 ON-CAMPUS CIRCULATION IMPROVEMENT PROJECT MITIGATION MONITORING PROGRAM CHECKLIST MEASURE One-time or On-going Responsible for Implementation Responsible for Verification Form of Verification Comments/ Special instructions Initials Date Prior to Demolition 3.1.2a: An analysis by building contractor Gilbane of the feasibility of moving Cottage #2 indicated that given “the condition of the cottage” “a successful relocation of the building, without significant damage, is highly improbable.” Moving the building would require “significant repair and possible alteration” given the water damage to the roof and interior walls and the condition of the exterior stucco (Iverson, Gilbane 2004). Although De Anza College has determined that it is not economically or physically feasible to retain Cottage #2 on the De Anza College campus, the College shall offer the building for $1.00 to a prospective purchaser willing and financially able to move the building to a site off campus. The feasibility of moving all or part of building can be determined by the prospective new owner’s contractor or an engineer experienced in moving historic buildings. If Cottage #2 is moved from its original location, the new location must be appropriate to the historic character of the building. This mitigation measure would reduce Project impacts to a greater extent than salvaging parts of the building or demolition because the building would remain intact as a work of architecture, even if certain features had to be reconstructed. This mitigation, however, would not reduce impacts to a less-than-significant level since it would remove the building from its original historic context as a contributing feature to the Baldwin Estate. One-time Project Engineer District Report on structural condition of Cottage #2. The report concluded moving Cottage #2 was highly improbable without significant damage to the structure.On-Campus Circulation Improvement Project Mitigation Monitoring Program Page 3 MEASURE One-time or On-going Responsible for Implementation Responsible for Verification Form of Verification Comments/ Special instructions Initials Date Prior to Demolition - continued 3.1.2b: Prior to demolition of Cottage #2, it shall be photographically documented according to the Historic American Building Survey (HABS) Photographic Specifications published by the Great Pacific Basin Office of the National Park Service, Oakland, California. This documentation shall include archival quality, large format (minimum 4 by 5 inch) photographs of the exterior and interior of the building. Archival quality negatives of the building plans (if available) should also be included as part of the HABS documentation. Written documentation shall include an “Outline Format” report according to the instructions in the Historic American Building Survey Guidelines for Preparing Written Historical and Descriptive Data published by the Cultural Resources division of the Pacific Great Basin Support Office of the National Park Service, Oakland. A copy of the documentation, with original photo negatives and prints, should be donated to an historical archive accessible to the public and with facilities for storing archival photographs, such as the California History Center. The Environmental Design Library Archives, University of California, Berkeley, which has a major Willis Polk collection of his drawings and papers, shall also receive a copy of the documentation. The HABS documentation will somewhat reduce project impacts, but not to a less-than-significant level. One-time Project Photographer Project Construction Manager HABS study prior to demolition. Photographs during demolition. At appropriate intervals during demolition of Cottage #2, photographs of the building’s structural elements such as foundation and framing will be photographed.
