PLANNING NEWS: NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION FOR 220 SOUTH SAN GABRIEL MIXED-USE PROJECT



An Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) has been prepared for a proposed mixed-use project at 220 South San Gabriel Boulevard.  The 220 South San Gabriel Project (project) would construct a mixed-use development with approximately 149 condominium units and 28,665 square feet of commercial space over two construction phases on a 4.09-acre site generally located at 220 South San Gabriel Boulevard.  A third phase (“Optional Phase 3”) may be incorporated into the project to include an additional parcel along the northerly edge of the project site.  This parcel would incorporate 14 additional condominium units and associate parking into the project.  The proposed project requires approval of a Planned Development/Development Agreement and Tentative Tract Map by with the City Council and a Precise Plan of Design and Master Sign Program by the Design Review Commission.  An IS/MND has determined that although the proposed project would have a significant effect on the environment, there will not be a significant effect because revisions/mitigation measures have been made by or agreed to by the project applicant.  Information related to the IS/MND can be found below:
