CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 16

Meeting Date:  May 23, 2000

Subject/Title:     Mitigated Negative Declaration for Sand Creek Road

Submitted by:    John Stevenson/S. Gronlund

Approved by:     Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION

Passage of a Resolution certifying the Mitigated Negative Declaration and adopting the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program for the Sand Creek Road Project, CIP Project No. 336-3061.

PREVIOUS ACTION

On May 25, 1999 by Resolution No. 99-127 the Council approved the environmental consultant’s contract for Sand Creek Road with Jerry Haag, Urban Planner.

BACKGROUND

In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA"), the CEQA guidelines, and the City of Brentwood guidelines, a Mitigated Negative Declaration was prepared to address the potential environmental effects for the roadway project, Sand Creek Road.  This project is shown on the Circulation Plan of the City of Brentwood General Plan and in the 2000-2005 Capital Improvement Program.  The Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration was prepared by Jerry Haag, Consulting Planner for the City.  As required by CEQA, the Initial Study relies extensively on impacts and mitigation measures contained in the Environmental Impact Report certified in 1993 (State Clearinghouse No. 92063113) to assess impacts associated with the adoption of the Brentwood General Plan.  All of the mitigation measures as outlined in the Negative Declaration will be provided for in the contract plans and specifications for the project.  A Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program was also prepared by Jerry Haag in accordance with CEQA and Implementing Guidelines, and will be implemented for the project as well.

The proposed project is consistent with the Land Use Element of the General Plan.  The Sand Creek Road project will provide a connection between the new Highway 4 Bypass and Brentwood Boulevard.
