DeLasalle EAW Findings (pdf) (final)
The Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) provides information regarding the potential environmental effects of the DeLaSalle High School Athletic Facility Project (Project). The Project is an addition of a regulation size football field at the School campus on Nicollet Island. The use of the field will be shared by DeLaSalle and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB). The new field, when not used for football, will provide one regulation size soccer field or three junior soccer fields. The use of this new football and soccer facility will be shared by DeLaSalle and by the MPRB. The athletic field will be built on two parcels of land presently divided by Grove Street, one owned by DeLaSalle, and one owned by the MPRB. The portion of the existing Grove Street right-of-way between Nicollet Street and East Island Avenue dividing the parcels would be vacated for the Project. The Project site is located within the St. Anthony Falls Historic District.
