VUSD trustees to vote on Wood stadium final EIR on Nov. 17 – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

Vacaville Unified trustees on Thursday mostly listened without comment during a presentation of the final Environmental Impact Report on the Will C. Wood High School football stadium project, which the governing board will consider for approval Nov. 17.

But the presentation led by Dan Banowetz, the district’s director of facilities, also included remarks by a Wood neighborhood resident who cautioned that traffic congestion and parking during home football games will be problematic.

Johanna Wigley, who for 28 years has lived with her husband on Spindrift Way and raised a family there, urged the governing board to make accommodations for off-site parking during home games at the planned $14 million stadium, which, once completed in December 2017, will seat 4,000 people in bleachers. The existing number of parking spaces at the campus will not be enough for stadiumgoers and require substantial off-site parking that currently does not exist or is in nearby limited commercial business and residential areas, she said during an interview after she left the meeting.
