Carondelet Athletic Complex
On October 27, Carondelet High School in Concord presented its state-of-the-art athletic complex project to the Walnut Creek Planning Commission and received a unanimous (5-0) vote recommending approval. This vote paves the way for Carondelet to move the project forward to the Walnut Creek City Council.
Carondelet submitted revised drawings in response to concerns of the planning commission, design review commission, and citizens. The revisions include a proposed sound barrier adjacent to the pool and along the entire length of the west property line; a reduction of light pole height around the softball field; upgrades to the existing tennis court light poles, slated for retention to improve the existing spillover light conditions; preservation of trees along the south property line; planting of 14 new trees; and a proposed third party usage plan.
Carondelet High School will continue to provide neighbors and youth programs access to the site when the facility is not in use by the school athletic programs by way of leasing agreements.
