Grant of Easement to Los Pinos Apartments, LLC, for Storm Drain Improvements
Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
Los Pinos Apartments, a California limited liability company, has requested that Sonoma Water execute an easement agreement for installation of storm drain outfall improvements on Sonoma Water property. The storm drain outfall improvements will allow Los Pinos Apartments to meet permitting requirements necessary to build the Project; a 50-unit multifamily rental housing project that includes three low-income units, on Santa Rosa Avenue. Sonoma Water currently uses the property for flood control maintenance purposes. Sonoma Water staff has determined that the easement would not adversely impact Sonoma Water’s use of the property in any respect. Sonoma County, as lead agency, completed environmental documentation in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the Project. Permit Sonoma prepared an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) that addressed the potential impacts related to the Project and measures to mitigate adverse effects of the Project. Permit Sonoma approved the Project, approved the IS/MND, and adopted findings on March 3, 2022, and filed a Notice of Determination on March 4, 2022. The easement meets all requirements of Government Code, Section 65402, for General Plan consistency. As a Responsible Agency under CEQA, Sonoma Water reviewed and considered the IS/MND as prepared by the lead agency. Sonoma Water approved the grant of easement agreement, concurred with each of the lead agency’s findings concerning environmental impacts and mitigation measures in the IS/MND and County’s resolution, and finds that the easement will not have an adverse impact upon the environment.
