Project Description: Mount Saint Mary’s University (MSMU) proposes a 38,000-square-foot, 2-story Wellness Pavilion (the “Project”) within a 3.8-acre portion of MSMU’s Chalon Campus. The Project Site is currently developed with a 1,030 square foot (floor area) building that houses a small collection of exercise equipment, two tennis courts, a swimming pool, two Facilities Management Buildings totaling 4,970 square feet of floor area, and several surface parking lots containing a total of 226 parking spaces. The existing on-site improvements, including the two tennis courts, swimming pool, and several surface parking lots, would be demolished to allow for the construction of the proposed Wellness Pavilion. The proposed Wellness Pavilion would provide students, faculty, and staff with comprehensive health and wellness services including modern amenities needed for physical and health education. The proposed Wellness Pavilion would include a recreation and practice gym, multi-purpose rooms, exercise rooms, physical therapy lab, dance and cycling studios, offices and support space (i.e. lockers, showers, restrooms, equipment storage, and mechanical spaces). The Project would also include a new outdoor pool area, landscaped open space, and a new accessory parking deck immediately adjacent and to the north of the proposed Wellness Pavilion. The accessory parking deck would include parking at grade with one level above grade atop a concrete deck. A total of 281 parking spaces would be provided on the Project Site, compared to the existing 226 spaces, a net increase of 55 spaces. The Project does not include a request to increase the maximum student enrollment on the Campus.


Based on the analysis included in the Draft EIR, the Project would result in significant and unavoidable impacts related to: Noise (construction only) and Transportation/Traffic (construction and operation). All other potential impacts would be less than significant or mitigated to less-than-significant levels.
