SANTA MONICA-MALIBU UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

FACILITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS (FIP)



Civic Center Joint Use Project (CCJUP)

Project Overview
A partnership was established between the Santa Monica-Malibu School District and the City of Santa Monica to redevelop the cultural, recreational, and public realm areas of the Santa Monica High School (Samohi) campus for the use by Samohi during school hours and by the community, under management of the city, during non-school hours. The goal of CCJUP is to provide and enhance the Samohi campus with new facilities and improve the opportunities for cultural and recreational activities for the City of Santa Monica.

Construction on the Samohi athletic field began in July 2011. As part of the CCJUP, the grass field was replaced with a synthetic turf athletic field. Construction of the field was complete in October 2011. The grand opening and ribbon cutting event was held on October 27, 2011. Beginning October 29, 2011, the City of Santa Monica began to manage the use of the field, track, and tennis courts for the community’s use during non-school hours.

Update:
The State of California has suspended funds for Redevelopment Agencies across the state. The district and the City of Santa Monica are currently contesting this, however, all further projects scheduled to be completed through these funds have been put on an indefinite hold.

Site improvements and landscaping were upgraded throughout campus. Sustainable design features included the reuse of existing facilities, maximizing natural daylight and ventilation, utilizing low emitting materials, minimizing storm water runoff and maintaining construction waste management. Modernization began in the third quarter of 2012 and were completed in the first quarter of 2013.

In 2009, Washington East and West received interior upgrades in classrooms such as painting, flooring and casework.
