Santa Monica College will hold a community meeting to solicit comments on a draft environmental impact report (EIR) that has been prepared for the Bundy Campus.

The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, November 2nd, in Bundy Campus Community Room 123, 3171 S. Bundy Drive, Mar Vista.

The master plan calls for:

– demolition of the existing two-story 33,055-square-foot East Building, with possible interim uses before demolition;

– construction of a new two-story building of similar size to replace the East Building, to be located closer to the center of the campus and immediately east of the existing West Building;

– provision of approximately 780 parking spaces, including 550 surface spaces and 230 underground slots (the site currently has 609 spaces);

– access improvements, including a new driveway to accommodate a traffic signal which is slated to be installed by the City of Los Angeles at the northeast corner of the campus;

– provision of a pedestrian parkway along Bundy Drive;

– landscaping and open space elements;

– continued use of and improvements to the four-story West Building; and

– other miscellaneous site improvements.

Santa Monica College officials say the primary objective of the plan is to provide a self-sustaining campus, largely operating independently of the main campus and other satellite sites.

Comments regarding the adequacy and completeness of the draft EIR should be submitted in writing to the college’s environmental review coordinator, Randal Lawson, executive vice president, Santa Monica College, 1900 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica 90405.

The draft EIR and the Master Plan are available on the Web at

Printed copies of the documents are also available for review in Bundy Campus Room 120.
