Moreover, this amendment to the Zoning Code does not pose the potential for new off-site or cumulatively considerable impacts not previously analyzed in the General Plan EIR. Additionally, no substantial new information has come to light that was not known nor could have been known at the time the General Plan EIR was certified, showing that significant impacts identified by the General Plan EIR will be more adverse than previously determined.
