The proposed 2023-2031 Housing Element Implementation Project (“proposed project”) project would amend the City of Piedmont’s General Plan, including the Land Use Element and other elements, and amend Chapter 17, Planning and Land Use, of the Piedmont City Code (PCC) to implement the City’s 2023-2031 Housing Element. The 2023-2031 Housing Element is designed to allow for the capacity to build housing in accordance with the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) assigned to Piedmont. The proposed project includes development of a specific plan in the Moraga Canyon Specific Plan (MCSP) area. The proposed project also includes updates to the Environmental Hazards Element (which serves as the Safety Element and Noise Element of the General Plan) to implement the 2023-2031 Housing Element and reflect recent changes in State law. Further, the proposed project includes updates to other elements of the General Plan’s to achieve internal consistency, implement the 2023-2031 Housing Element, and reflect regulatory changes since original adoption of the General Plan. Amendments to other General Plan elements include amendments to including the: Land Use Element; Transportation Element; Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Element; Community Services and Facilities Element; Design & Preservation Element, and Natural Resources and Sustainability Element.
The Draft EIR studies the future buildout of the proposed project, including development on particular sites identified for growth during the 6th Cycle in the Housing Element and sites within zoning districts subject to zoning amendments, and impacts as a result of programs intended to increase housing production in all areas of Piedmont. Overall, the Draft EIR assumes 1,048 housing units associated with the proposed project, although specific development cannot be determined at this time. Therefore, the Draft EIR is a program-level EIR.
