The project consists of a mixed'."use development including 178 residential units and approximately 24,855 square feet of commercial space. The 4.10-acre project site would be developed with 3 and 4-story buildings, plazas, ground level courtyards, elevated interior courtyards, a new transverse · street, onsite and on-street parking,
landscaping and ancillary improvements.
The project is consistent with the land use regulations and policies set forth in City of
Petaluma General Plan (GP) and the Central Petaluma Specific Plan (CPSP), and complies with the established zoning regulations set forth in the SmartCode. The Haystack Mixed-Use Project is consistent with the development density and
intensity established for the project site in the GP and CPSP and would not result in any new or more severe environmental impacts that were not previously identified in the GP or CPSP EIRs. The project site is located within City limits on a priority development site that is less than 5 acres and is substantially surrounded by established urban uses. The project site is void of natural vegetation and there is no habitat that would support endangered, rare or threatened species. The project would not result in any significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality. The project is adequately served by all required utilities and public services. There are no exceptions that would preclude application of the exemption. The applicant will implement all applicable policies and mitigation measures from the GP and CPSP EIRs. Therefore, the project is exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Sections 15168 ( Consistency with Program EIRs), 15183 (Community Plan Exemption), 15332 (Infill Exemption), and California Government Code Section 65457 (Specific Plan Exemption).
