Aquatics Sites Alternatives Environmental Impact Report

In 2005, the City of El Segundo prepared the Aquatics Master Plan to establish goals for addressing current and future needs of the community for aquatics facilities and programs.  The City then proceeded to investigate site feasibility and contracted with pool design specialists to identify sites and design concepts.  The City has developed five alternative design concepts on three potential aquatic facility sites.  The City is the the process of reviewing of the potential environmental impacts of each of the alternative concepts. 

The three sites studied in the EIR are: 1) Hilltop Park, a City of El Segundo owned property at 301 Maryland Street; 2) the ESUSD owned Imperial Avenue School site at 530 East Imperial Avenue; and 3) the Urho Saari Swim Stadium facility at 219 West Mariposa Avenue.  There are two design concepts for the Hilltop Park and Imperial Avenue locations: an outdoor competition/recreation pool only alternative and an alternative that includes both an outdoor competition/recreation pool and an additional outdoor recreational pool with amenities such as waterslides and splash area.  The Urho Saari Swim Stadium site would involve the construction of an outdoor competition/recreation pool and the renovation and expansion of the existing indoor facility.  

The City Council certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the El Segundo Aquatics Site Feasiblity Alternatives Project occured at its August 16, 2011 City Council meeting.  The following two links are to the two volumes of the FEIR:
