Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Public Resources Code Section 21166, Government Code Section 65457
Reasons for Exemption
The Paloma Del Sol Specific Plan was formally adopted in 1988. An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was prepared and certified on September 6, 1988 as part of this effort. Since that time, four Addenda to the EIR have been prepared for the project area with the most recent adopted on January 8, 2002. The proposed project (Project) has been determined to be consistent with the previously adopted Paloma Del Sol Addendum and no further environmental review is required (Public Resources Code Section 21166 and Government Code Section 65457). Staff has reviewed the EIR, the First Addendum to the EIR adopted December 8, 1992, the Second Addendum to the EIR adopted on March 17, 1999, the Third Addendum to the EIR adopted on September 9, 1999, and the Fourth Addendum to the EIR adopted on January 8, 2002 (collectively, EIR and Addenda). In addition, staff has reviewed the Consistency Evaluation Pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21166, prepared by Psomas and dated August 26, 2020, and the Memorandum re Revalidation of the Consistency Evaluation for Paseo Del Sol Residential Development, also prepared by Psomas and dated September 14, 2023. Based on this substantial evidence, staff has determined that the proposed Project does not require the preparation of a subsequent or supplemental EIR as none of the conditions described in Public Resources Code Section 21166 exist. Specifically as it relates to Section 21166, Tentative Tract Map 36483 and associated Project improvements do not represent a substantial change from the Paloma del Sol Specific Plan evaluated in the certified EIR and Addenda and is within the scope of the potential development contemplated by that Plan; there are no substantial changes with respect to the circumstances under which the Project is undertaken that would result in new significant or substantially more severe impacts; and there is no new information of substantial importance, which was not known and could not have been known at the time of the certified EIR. The Project would not have any new or substantially more severe impacts than what was evaluated in the EIR and Addenda, and there are no mitigation measures or alternatives that would reduce significant impacts and were previously found not to be feasible but which are now feasible. Therefore, based on this evaluation, none of the conditions in Section 21166 of the Public Resources Code apply and no subsequent or supplemental EIR is required. In addition, the Project is exempt as it is a residential development project undertaken to implement a specific plan for which an EIR previously was prepared per Government Code Section 65457. The application for a Tentative Tract Map to construct 164 single family residential lots and nine (9) open space lots is consistent with the project that was analyzed by the EIR and Addenda. The proposed Project is required to meet all requirements and mitigation contained in EIR and Addenda.
