WHEREAS, Highland Partners Group, Inc. and Kiper Development, Inc. have requested that the City approve a rezone from R-1-E and R-1-10 to PD-60 with the adoption of specific development standards to accommodate the development of Tentative Subdivision Map No. 8546, located generally at the southwest corner of Lone Tree Way and the future O'Hara Avenue extension; and
WHEREAS, on August 20, 2002, the Planning Commission conducted a duly noticed public hearing, considered public comments, and passed Resolution No. 02-52, which recommended approval of the rezone and specific development standards; and
WHEREAS, an Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration were prepared for this project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and are considered a part of this review and approval process; and
WHEREAS, the Mitigated Negative Declaration identifies potentially significant environmental effects associated with the proposed project which can be feasibly mitigated or avoided and these project measures are included in the project conditions of approval and will reduce the impacts identified to a less than significant level; and
WHEREAS, the availability of said environmental document for the minimum 20-day public review and comment period was begun on July 5, 2002, and ended on July 24, 2002, and no comments were received during the review period; and
WHEREAS, a Notice of Public Hearing was distributed to all property owners of record within 300 feet of the project site and published in the Ledger-Dispatch on July 5, 2002, and again in the Contra Costa Times on August 31, 2002, in accordance with City policies and Government Code Section 65090; and
WHEREAS, the City Council held a public hearing on the proposed rezone and specific development standards on September 10, 2002, and again on October 8, 2002, for the purpose of reviewing the application, considering the Planning Commission's action and considering all comments made by the public with respect to the requests; and
WHEREAS, after the close of the public hearing, the City Council considered all public comments received both before and during the public hearing, the Planning Commission recommendation, the presentation by City Staff, the staff report, and all other pertinent goals, policies, regulations, and documents regarding the proposed rezone and specific development standards; and
WHEREAS, the City Council of the City of Brentwood hereby makes the following supporting findings for this application as required by Section 17.870.008 of the City Zoning Ordinance:
1. Specific development standards for the uses permitted under the General Plan and the approved Tentative Subdivision Map No. 8546 have been established; and
2. The development standards will result in development that is consistent and compatible with surrounding uses; and
3. The level of traffic to be generated can be accommodated by the public circulation system, both existing and planned; and
4. The project will serve the housing needs of the City and the region and will not create a detrimental imbalance between the public service needs of its residents and available fiscal and environmental resources (Government Code Section 65863.6); and
5. The proposed development will clearly result in a more desirable use of land and a better physical environment than would be possible under any single zone or combination of zones; and
6. The proposed Planned Development Zone is on property which has a suitable relationship to one or more thoroughfares, and said thoroughfares are adequate to carry any traffic generated by the development; and
7. The plan for the proposed development presents a unified and organized arrangement of buildings and service facilities which are appropriate in relation to adjacent or nearby properties; and
8. The natural and scenic qualities of the site are protected with adequate available public and private open spaces designated on the development plan; and
9. The development of the subject property, in the manner proposed by the applicants, will not be detrimental to the public welfare, will be in the best interests of the City and will be in keeping with the general intent and spirit of the Zoning Ordinance and with the City's Community Development Plan, including all relevant elements thereof, and with any applicable Specific Plan adopted by the City; and
10. The City Council has reviewed and approved the Mitigated Negative Declaration prepared for this project and orders the filing of the Notice of Determination with the County Clerk; and
11. Pursuant to Sections 15162 and 15168(c) 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 on 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 Program EIR. The Mitigated Negative Declaration applies all applicable 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; and
12. The City Council further finds that no significant new information within the meaning of Public Resources Code Section 21092.1 and CEQA Guidelines Section 15088.5 has been presented to the City that would necessitate re-circulation of the Mitigated Negative Declaration for public review. The City Council has considered all verbal and written comments relating to the Mitigated Negative Declaration and finds no significant new information has arisen.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Brentwood does hereby ordain as follows:
