Document Description
Revised Final EIR #616 analyzed a proposal by the Project Applicant for the development of a residential community of a maximum of 340 single family homes including two estate lots on 469 acres on an undeveloped site located within the unincorporated area of Orange County. The project proposes construction of a gated community with large lot, low-density residential neighborhoods at an overall density of 0.73 dwelling units per acre. The County certified FEIR No. 616 on March 10, 2015 and the Board approved the project on June 2, 2015. A Petition for Writ of Mandate and Complaint for Injunctive Relief was filed challenging the adequacy of the FEIR. On August 24, 2016 the Judge issued a Writ required revision to the FEIR in the area of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and requiring vacation of FEIR No. 616, the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, Findings of Fact/Statement of Overriding Considerations and all approvals of the Project based upon FEIR No. 616. On Dec. 13, 2016, the Board of Supervisors vacated all previous approvals and certification of FEIR No. 616. In order to comply with the Writ, the Greenhouse Gas Emissions section of FEIR No. 616 (Ch. 5.6) was revised to include 40 specific Mitigation Measures with earlier timing mechanisms for implementation and a larger reduction in emissions from 5% to 7.93%. No other revisions to FEIR No. 616 were required by the Court, which found all other arguments presented by the Petitioners to be "without merit".
