Body

ANALYSIS:

Tract Map 35590 was originally approved by the City Council on December 19, 2012, to subdivide approximately 38 acres located at the southwest corner of Serfas Club Drive and Palisades Road.  The entitlement had two map phases; Tract 35590-1 (Phase I) and Tract 35590 (Phase II), both of which have been recorded.  Phase I included the construction of an apartment complex on the easterly portion of the site, and Phase II was for the construction of 7 industrial lots in the Mixed Use Zone of the Sierra Del Oro Specific Plan (SP85-2). All of Phase I and the three westerly industrial lots of Phase II have completed construction.  On January 16, 2019, the City Council approved an agreement for mass grading on the remaining four lots of Phase II, located at 2460, 2470, 2510, and 2520 Palisades Drive (Tract Map 35590 Lots 4-7), as shown on Exhibit “A.”  The developer, On Point Commercial, LLC, is now seeking a permit for the precise grading phase of the project.

 

In compliance with the City’s Grading Ordinance No. 2568, the owner will enter into a Grading Agreement to secure the precise grading operations.  The grading design conforms to the Grading Ordinance and is consistent with sound engineering standards and practices.  The elevation design minimizes significant height and slope differentials from surrounding properties, while maintaining the City’s obligation to protect the health and safety of citizens and property. A cash deposit has been posted to guarantee erosion control facilities, which will be constructed and be maintained until the project is completed.

ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS:

Per Section 15070 of the Guidelines for implementing the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and Section 6.02 of the City’s Local CEQA Guidelines, a mitigated negative declaration and mitigation monitoring plan was prepared for tentative tract map 35590, and adopted by the City Council on December 19, 2012.

 

However, this specific action before the Council now is exempt pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) of CEQA, which states that a project is exempt from CEQA if the activity is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects that have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment.  Where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA.  This action merely approves agreements that provide security to guarantee completion of improvements that are required in connection with a ministerial permit, and there is no possibility that approving these agreements will have a significant effect on the environment. Therefore, no further environmental analysis is required.
