University of La Verne Proposed Parking Structure

The University of La Verne has filed a Development Application to construct a 940 space parking structure on the University of La Verne campus.  The proposed parking structure is anticipated to be four-stories tall with five levels of parking holding 940 vehicles, with office space for the Campus Safety Department on the ground floor.  The parking structure will replace an area of existing surface parking in Parking Lot D located at 2021 D Street and be located ten feet from the University’s southern property line.  The parking structure will span between the Super Tents on the west and Leo Park on the east.  Vehicle access to the parking structure will be from two existing driveways one on D Street between Leo Park and Vista La Verne Residence Hall, and the other on Second Street between the Campus Center and Hanawalt House.  In an effort to help the community visualize the location and height of the proposed parking structure the University installed flags during the week of August 17th.  The flags were put into place using construction boom lifts to the 45’-7” height of the parking structure and ran the length of the structures south side.


The project is currently in the environmental review phase with the Draft Initial Study-Mitigated Negative Declaration out for public review, copies of the environmental study are available for public review at Planning Department Counter in City Hall and at the La Verne Library, a digital copy can be found on the City’s website by clicking here - ULV Parking Structure IS-MND Public Draft.  Public comments on the draft environmental study can be submitted until August 31, 2015.  The project is scheduled for public hearing before the Planning Commission on September 9, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers.  If you have any questions about the proposed parking structure please contact Associate Planner, Rafferty Wooldridge at (909) 596-8706.
