for this application:
The proposed prezonings have been processed in accordance with
the applicable provisions of the California Government Code and the California
Environmental Quality Act.
Pursuant to Section 15168(c) and 15162 of the CEQA Guidelines,
the City Council finds that the project is within the scope of the development
levels evaluated in the Program EIR prepared for the 1993 City of Brentwood
General Plan. The Initial
study has further evaluated potential project specific impacts to the
environment. Based upon this
evidence and the Mitigated Negative Declaration, this City Council finds
that the Project will not have any significant environmental impacts that
were not studied in the measures specified in the Program EIR to the Project
and imposes additional mitigation measures to supplement and strengthen
the Program EIR measures. Therefore,
since the mitigation measures are incorporated as conditions to the approval
of the Project, the Mitigated Negative Declaration as well as the Program
EIR for the 1993 General Plan are adequate for all approvals relating
to the Project.
The City Council further finds that no significant new information
within the meaning of the Public Resources Code Section 21092.1 and CEQA
Guidelines Section 15088.5 has been presented to the City which would
necessitate recirculation of the Mitigated Negative Declaration for further
On the basis of the whole record before it, there is no substantial
evidence that this project will have a significant effect on the environment,
and the Mitigated Negative Declaration reflects the City Council’s independent
judgment and analysis.
The proposed prezoning designations are consistent with the City
