An Initial Study / Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) has been prepared for the proposed Symphony at San Gabriel project at 824 South Gladys Avenue.  The proposed project would develop the site with a 197-unit assisted living facility on an approximately 3.08-acre site.  The site would contain a combination of senior independent living units, assisted living units, and memory care units.  The proposed project requires approval of a Planned Development and Tentative Parcel Map by the City Council and a Precise Plan of Design by the Design Review Commission. An IS/MND has been proposed project could have a significant effect on the environment, there will not be a significant effect because revisions/mitigations measures have been made by or agreed to by the project applicant.  Information related to the IS/MND can be found below:
