and 6 retail/restaurant buildings totaling 34,000 sq. ft., on 37 of the 47 acres of real property located within the Sun Lakes Village North Specific Plan Amendment No. 5 (SLVNSP) plan area. The City of Banning previously certified an EIR (SCH

Pursuant to CEQA Guidelines § 15162, there have been no substantial changes in the Project nor in the circumstances under which the Project is undertaken and no new information of substantial importance, which was not known and could not have been known with the exercise of reasonable due diligence at the
time the EIR was certified, that will require major revisions of the prior-certified EIR. Pursuant to CEQA Guidelines §§ 15164 and 15168(c), the City Council adopted an Addendum / Consistency Checklist to the prior-certified EIR for the Project on Feb. 17, 2022.
