NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT A PUBLIC HEARING
WILL BE HELD BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE
CITY OF SAN CLEMENTE, CALIFORNIA,
RELATIVE TO THE FOLLOWING:
General Plan Amendment PLN20-036 – Housing Element and Safety Element Updates
Public Hearing to consider a request to adopt environmental findings pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act, certify the Program Environmental Impact Report (State Clearinghouse No. 2021020256) regarding the Housing Element and Safety Element Updates, adopt a Statement of Overriding Considerations, adopt the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, approve General Plan Amendment PLN20-036 to adopt the Housing Element and Safety Element Updates, and authorize staff to submit the Housing Element Update to the Department of Housing and Community Development.
In accordance with State CEQA Guidelines Section 15164, the City prepared a Program Environmental Impact Report (State Clearinghouse No. 2021020256) (the “PEIR”) for the City’s 2013-2021 Housing Element and Safety Element Updates. The PEIR determined that mitigation measures were required to mitigate impacts to a less than significant level for biological resources, cultural and tribal resources, geology and soils, and hazards and hazardous materials. The PEIR further concluded that despite the incorporation of all feasible mitigation measures, the proposed Project would nonetheless result in significant and unavoidable impacts relating to air quality (consistency with air quality plans, criteria pollutants), noise (construction), greenhouse gas emissions (emissions; policy consistency), and transportation (VMT). All remaining potential environmental impacts are insignificant or can be mitigated to a level that is less than significant.
Materials for this project are on-file at the Planning Division, at 910 Calle Negocio, available online, and are available for public inspection and comment by contacting Project Planner Jennifer Savage at (949) 361-6186 or SavageJ@san-clemente.org.
