Project Update

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 hearings with the Historic Resources Board, Architectural Review Board, and Planning & Transportation Commission will be held virtually this summer and fall.
