Current Project Status

City staff has updated the environment review documentation to bring it current with changes to the CEQA checklist and guidelines.  More specifically, staff has integrated a section in the checklist to address Wildfire.  Additionally, staff augmented the Initial Study in response to comments received in response to the circulation of the Mitigated Negative Declaration.  These comments related to Aesthetics, Noise, and Drainage.  The revisions to the documents and staff’s further review did not identify any need to revise conclusions regarding potential impacts or to add mitigation measures.  The revised documentation will be posted below upon recirculation.

Environmental Review Documents

In compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the City of Monte Sereno has undertaken an environmental review for the proposed 4-lot subdivision at 18081 Saratoga-Los Gatos Road, and intends to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND).  The City previously circulated a Notice of Intent to Adopt a MND, the MND, and the Initial Study in February of 2019.  Subsequent to that comments were received, and it was identified that the CEQA checklist used was not current.  Staff has revised the documentation to address those comments received related to aesthetics, noise, and drainage, and updated the CEQA checklist to include a section at the end on Wildfire.  The revisions and staff’s further review of information did not identify any need to revise the conclusions regarding potential impact or to add mitigation measures.
