Notice of Intent to Adopt a Negative Declaration/Initial Study. CD 13. The proposed project would be located on the site of the existing Los Angeles Police Department Northeast Area Police Station, 3353 San Fernando Road, Los Angeles, CA, 90065, in the community of Glassell Park which is in the Northeast Community Plan Area.
The City of Los Angeles (City) is proposing to construct a new administration building on the site of the existing Northeast Area Police Station and then to demolish the existing administration building. The existing administration building was not designed for police station operations and is not efficient for that purpose. A new two story, 52,000 square-foot administration building designed for police operations would be constructed on the project site and the existing two-story, 41,000 square-foot administration building would be demolished; the area within the footprint of the existing administration building would then be paved and striped for surface parking. The proposed project would also replace the existing communications tower with a tower of the same height and would widen and improve San Fernando Road in front of the project site. The new police station facility would house the same complement of assigned staff and apparatus as the existing facility and would not require any new land. The proposed project would be funded with revenue from Proposition Q – the Citywide Public Safety Bond Measure approved by voters in 2002.
In compliance with the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), an Initial Study has been prepared to assess the potential environmental impacts of this project. Under CEQA, the City identified no significant impacts. As such, the City proposes to adopt a Negative Declaration.
The Initial Study and Negative Declaration were considered by the Board of Public Works on August 22, 2012. The Initial Study, the Notice of Intent to Adopt a Negative Declaration, and the Notice of Determination may be viewed by clicking on the links below. The City Council adopted the negative declaration and approved the project on October 23, 2012. The council file can be viewed at Council File 12-1348.
