CONTINUED CONSIDERATION OF SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT (SCEA), MITIGATION MEASURES, MITIGATION MONITORING PROGRAM (MMP) and PLANNING AND LAND USE MANAGEMENT (PLUM) COMMITTEE REPORT relative to Vesting Tentative Tract appeals for the properties located at 1000 South Hill Street, 1000-1034 South Hill Street, and 220-226 West Olympic Boulevard.

 

Recommendations for Council action:

 

  1. FIND, based on the entire administrative record and all comments received, that:

    a) The project qualifies as a transit priority project pursuant to Public Resources Code (PRC) Section 21155(b).

    b) The proposed project is consistent with the general use designations, density, building intensity, and applicable policies specified for the project area in the Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS) prepared by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG).

    c) The proposed project contains more than 50 percent residential, provides a minimum net density greater than 20 units an acre, and is within one half mile of a major transit stop or high-quality transit corridor included in the RTP/SCS.

    d) The proposed project is a residential or mixed-use project as defined by RC Section 21159.28(d).

    e) The proposed project incorporates all feasible mitigation measures, performance standards, or criteria set forth in the prior environmental reports, including SCAG's 2016 2040 RTP/SCS Program Environmental Impact Report.

    f) All potentially significant or significant effects required to be identified and analyzed pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in an initial study have been identified and analyzed in an initial study, and that said initial study has been prepared and circulated in compliance with PRC Section 21155.2(b).

    g) With respect to all potentially significant or significant effects on the environment required to be identified in the initial study, changes or alterations have been required I or incorporated into the project that avoids or mitigates the significant effects to a level of insignificance, and those changes or alterations that are within the responsibility and jurisdiction of another public agency and have been, or can and should be, adopted by that other agency.

    h) Mitigation Measures will be made enforceable conditions on the project; and FIND that the proposed project complies with the requirements of CEQA for using a SCEA as authorized pursuant to PRC Section 21155.2(b).

  2. MODIFY Mitigation Measure MM-T-3 Construction Management Plan of the SCEA to require coordination with transit line operators with bus stops adjacent to the project site; and FIND that the modification to the mitigation measure does not require the recirculation of the SCEA pursuant to PRC Section 15073.5 and 15074.1 because the modification merely clarifies, amplifies, or makes insignificant modifications to the SCEA and that the new measure is equivalent and more effective in mitigating or avoiding potential significant effects and that it in itself will not cause any potentially significant effect on the environment.

  3. ADOPT the SCEA and MMP prepared for the SCEA.

  4. ADOPT the FINDINGS of the PLUM Committee as modified consistent with the Technical Corrections to the SCEA, as the Findings of Council.

  5. RESOLVE TO DENY THE APPEALS filed by the Laborer’s International Union of North America, Local 300 (Representative: Richard Drury, Lozeau Drury LLP) and Charles Carnow and Antonio Mendoza, UNITE HERE, Local 11, and THEREBY SUSTAIN the decision of the Los Angeles City Planning Commission (LACPC) in sustaining the determination of the Deputy Advisory Agency's approval of Vesting Tentative Tract Map No. VTT-74760-1A for the merger and re-subdivision of seven lots into one lot for residential and commercial condominium purposes, for a maximum of 700 residential units and 15,000 square feet of commercial space for the properties located at 1000 South Hill Street; 1000-1034 South Hill Street; and 220-226 West Olympic Boulevard, subject to Conditions of Approval.
