...Recommendations

(a)                     Conduct an Administrative Hearing to consider the Appeal of the Planning Director’s reliance on the Addendum to the Final Environmental Impact Report for the Santana West Rezoning and the I-280 Winchester/Moorpark Transportation Development Policy (Addendum) in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for a Planned Development Permit (File No. PD18-047) to allow the demolition of a total of 62,435 square feet of commercial buildings (Century 22, Century 23, Flames Restaurant buildings), the construction of three buildings (up to 850,000 of rentable square feet which is approximately 934,750 square feet of gross floor area) for commercial office and an above grade parking garage, and the removal of 79 ordinance-size trees; and a Tentative Map (File No. PT19-016) to allow reconfiguration of three parcels to four parcels on an approximately 13.0-gross acre site located at the northwest corner of Olsen Drive and South Winchester Boulevard at 3161 Olsen Drive.

(b)                     Adopt a resolution denying the appeal and upholding the Planning Director’s reliance on the Addendum, and finding that:

                     (1)                     The City Council has read and considered the Addendum for the Santana West Master Development Plan and related administrative record related to Planned Development Permit No. PD18-045 and Tentative Map No. PT19-016;

                     (2)                     The Addendum for the Santana West Master Development Plan was prepared and completed in full compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act of 1970, as amended, together with State and local implementation guidelines;

                     (3)                     Reliance on the Addendum for the Santana West Master Development Plan reflects the independent judgment and analysis of the City of San José; and

(c)                     Preparation of a new, subsequent, or supplemental environmental impact report is not required because none of following events occurred as outlined in Section 21166 of the Public Resources Code: (i) substantial changes are proposed in the project which will require major revisions of the environmental report; (ii) substantial changes occur with respect to the circumstances under which the project is being undertaken which will require major revisions in the environmental impact report; or (iii) new information, which was not known and could not have been known at the time the environmental impact report was certified as complete, becomes available. Further, a new, subsequent, or supplemental environmental impact report is not required because no impacts outside the scope of the Santana West Rezoning and the I-280 Winchester/Moorpark Transportation Development Policy Final Environmental Impact Report were identified as outlined in Section 15168 of the CEQA Guidelines.
