Hamilton School Property Update

Please Spread the News

We are continuing to hold Community Input Meetings to gather valuable input regarding the future of the Hamilton School Property. While the decision to repurpose Hamilton was already made in 2017, this is an opportunity for the community to express your needs and opinions about any potential new ball fields and future development. 

Please check back here for upcoming meeting dates.

Background

The recommendation to change the purpose of the Hamilton school property was made in 2017 by a public 7/11 committee appointed by the Board of Education. Now, seven years later, Torrance Unified is looking at moving forward with repurposing this site for four main reasons:

(1) The State of California is making massive financial cuts, which will affect education funding
(2) Hamilton campus needs $6-$7 million invested to keep the buildings and grounds safe and secure
(3) There are viable options to move the Softball and Little League fields within North Torrance
(4) Thanks to the success of the development next door, there is an opportunity to generate income long-term for Torrance Unified School District

Steps Taken So Far

The Board of Education has not made any decisions yet. The Torrance Unified Board of Education has asked the staff to explore the options for the Hamilton School property and has publically committed that no actions will be taken until we can all ensure that the Softball and Little League organizations have a new, high-quality home in North Torrance without an interruption to their season, the Adult School has a new location for classes in North Torrance and the Transition program can be moved to a suitable location. Our Torrance Unified Leadership has held two listening sessions with North Torrance Leadership representatives regarding the Hamilton property. Minutes from these meetings are available to read in the links at the right. 

North Torrance Community Input Meetings

Torrance Unified is holding a series of Community Input Meetings and inviting North Torrance residents and Community Members affiliated with the Adult School and Ball fields as well as nieghbors and residents in North Torrance. to attend to provide valuable input regarding the future of the Hamilton School Property. While the decision to repurpose Hamilton was already made in 2017, this is an opportunity for the community to express your needs and opinions about any potential new ball fields and future development.
