Reasons for Exemption
This project includes the acceptance of the Project Homekey funds which would allow for the acquisition and purchase of the 76-unit hotel; none of the units would be acquired by eminent domain. The acquisition would be funded entirely through public funds. The site is currently operated by the Santa Clara Office of Supportive Housing and Abode Services and maintained in safe and sanitary conditions. No construction nor expansion is proposed with this action. The intent of the acquisition is to provide housing units for individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of homelessness. Based on the above, this action is exempt from the environmental review requirements of Title 21 of the San Jose Municipal Code, implementing the California Environmental Quality Act of 1970, as amended pursuant to Public Health and Safety Code Section 50675.1.2.
