It’s been a busy and productive summer for the CHArting the Future (CTF) project.

We are proud to reveal the latest vision for our new home.

The full-color rendering demonstrates CHA’s commitment to building a 21st century school in harmony with our unique landscape.

Erich Miller, Chair of our CTF Committee, gives us an update on the work that has been completed so far:

  • The sewer connection is complete.  Our campus was previously on a septic system, and we now have direct access to our own connection.  This underground work was a city-mandated requirement and a major step before starting the next phase of construction.
  • Another big step forward was accomplished on Friday when Southern California Edison moved their utility pole.  The pole was on the site of our future Fine Arts Building (“Building 6”).  As you all know, this work required an early dismissal.  We thank our CHA community of parents and faculty for their patience and flexibility.
  • AT&T is scheduled to do their work over the next week.
  • All buildings plans were submitted to the Los Angeles City Planning Commission for review in August. Grading plans are under final review, and we expect to have a permit by October to start excavation.
  • Expect an updated vehicle and pedestrian plan for better safety and ease of transit.

During the first week of school, Middle School students took a tour of the CTF site.  They walked “the campus” and got a first hand view of what the new school will feel like.

Mark your calendar to join us on September 22 for the Every Family Campaign Launch.  We invite you to come with your family for a BBQ celebration to kick off the next phase of our CHArting the Future Capital Campaign.  Event begins at 4pm.

As we move forward, CTF is ready to answer your questions.  Leave a comment here and check back for more updates.
