Night Lighting, Tall Screens Planned for Hoover Field 1


Night lighting on tall poles, and an 8-foot high green screen next to the sidewalk on Olmsted Road, are planned for the Hoover High School track and field as part of the Glendale Unified School District’s Measure S facility upgrades.

Excerpts from the NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT AN INITIAL STUDY AND A PROPOSED NEGATIVE DECLARATION ON THE PROPOSED HOOVER HIGH SCHOOL PRACTICE FIELD LIGHTING PROJECT:

“four 90 foot tall light poles along the perimeter of the running track…Each of the light poles would be mounted with the light fixtures utilizing 1,500-watt … MuscoZ lamps and equipped with Light Structure Green (LSG) visors. The design of the proposed field lighting was selected in order to minimize spill light onto adjacent uses.”

“…an existing chain-link fence along Olmsted Street would be enhanced with an 8-foot high green screen in order to diffuse the field lighting from the neighbors located to the north across Olmsted Street.”

UPDATE 6/14/2012: GUSD’s website now also has a direct link to the Hoover High Lighting Project Negative Declaration.

GUSD will hold a community meeting to provide information about the proposal on Wednesday, June 20, 6:30 p.m., in the Parent Meeting Room (Room 12101), Hoover High School, 651 Glenwood Road. The Board of Education will consider adoption of the Initial Study/Negative Declaration at its regularly scheduled meeting, Tuesday, August 14, 2012, at GUSD administrative offices, 223 N. Jackson St., Glendale.

Public comment period for the project is June 4, 2012 to July 5, 2012 (ending at 5 p.m.)

    It’s about time Hoover gets equal treatment With Glendale HS and CV.

    The field at Hoover has been substandard for years. Nearly 10 years ago the other schools received artificial turf and track. The Board said they’d fix HHS, wonder why so long?

    The lighting will improve the field and with the current plan the neighbors will be OK.
