Final Environmental Impact Report and City of Palo Alto Hearings
In 2016, Castilleja submitted a Master Plan to modernize campus and increase enrollment while minimizing impacts on the neighborhood. The City of Palo Alto released a Draft Environmental Impact Report on the project in July of 2019. This April, Castilleja submitted a new Project Alternative for consideration, with a scaled down garage that conserves trees and preserves homes. It addresses impacts cited in the Draft Environmental Impact Report. The City of Palo Alto released the Final Environmental Impact Report on July 29, 2020 and has announced that hearings regarding Castilleja's project will be held before the Architectural Review Board (ARB) on Thursday, August 20, 2020 at 8:30am and before the Planning and Transportation Commission (PTC) on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 at 6:00pm. These hearings, and subsequent hearings expected in the fall, will take place virtually."
