San Jose State University Student Facilities Center IS-MND

describe the imageRincon Consultants prepared an Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS-MND) to analyze the potential environmental effects of constructing a Student Health Facility on the San Jose State University campus. The proposed project would involve the construction of a 52,000 square foot student health facility, not to exceed five stories in height, on an infill site located near the center of the SJSU campus.  The project site is currently undeveloped, with ten mature trees.  The campus currently contains a student health facility (built in 1958) however it does not adequately serve the needs of the growing campus.   As a result of the extensive operational and maintenance issues required by this older building, campus planners decided that it would be preferable to move forward with a more comprehensive construction  and expansion project.  The proposed project would incorporate necessary seismic upgrades and would increase the size and quality of existing facilities. In addition, the proposed project is anticipated to assist the University in retention, recruitment, and overall improvement of the SJSU campus.  Rincon planners examined a number of issues for the project including aesthetics, biological resources, cultural resources, public services, and utilities.
