Document Description
The City of Novato Certified the EIR for the Novato General Plan 2007-20 14 Housing Element (Certified EIR) on November 19, 2013. Subsequently, on November 18, 2014, the City Council determined that, pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Sections 15168 and 15162, that the Novato General Plan 2015-2023 Housing Element was consistent with the 2007-20 14 Housing Element, and no additional environmental review was necessary. The Certified EIR included a project level review of potential development at the 2-acre (1.5 net acres) project site located on Landing Court, identified as Affordable Housing Opportunity (AHO) Overlay Site No. 2. The project applicant, Pacific Planning Group, has submitted a development project for 32 residential units at the 1.5 net acres AHO site, consistent with one of three density scenarios (20-23 units/acre) analyzed in the Certified EIR. The project includes entitlements for a vesting tentative subdivision map, design review, and density bonus request. A determination has been made that the project is consistent with the development density established by existing zoning and general plan policies for which an EIR was certified, and that no additional environmental review is required, pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15183. The analyses conducted and the conclusions reached in the Certified Elk remain valid, and the project would not cause new significant impacts not identified in the Certified EIR. The Planning Commission determined that 1) The proposed Project is consistent with the development density established by existing zoning and general plan policies; 2) An EIR was certified for the Novato General Plan 2007-20 14 Housing Element E(State Clearinghouse No. 2013032070), which established the densities for the Project site, identified as AHO Site No. 2; 3) No project-specific significant effects peculiar to the Project or its site were identified; 4) The proposed Project does not require additional environmental studies; and 5) Mitigation measures included in the Certified Elk are feasible and will be undertaken at the Project site.
