Water Neutral New Development Phase 1.5 Amendments, LRP2020-00002

Number:
Planning Commission 6/2020
Department:
Planning and Building
Description:
Hearing to consider a request by the County of San Luis Obispo for amendments to Title 22 and Title 19 to update the maps of the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin boundary and the Area of Severe Decline to be consistent with the Paso Robles Sub-basin Groundwater Sustainability Plan and to incorporate a fallowing option into the Agricultural Offset Program. Also to be considered is the environmental determination and approval of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. A Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) Addendum was prepared because the proposed change would not result in any new significant impacts that were not evaluated in the previously certified Final SEIR (Countywide Water Conservation Program Final SEIR – October 27, 2015). The Environmental Coordinator finds that the previously certified Final SEIR is adequate for the purposes of compliance with CEQA because 1) no substantial changes are proposed in the project which will require major revision of the previously certified FSEIR, 2) no substantial changes will occur with respect to the circumstance under which the project is undertaken that would require major revisions of the previously certified FSEIR, and 3) no new information of substantial importance has been identified which was not known at the time that the previous FSEIR was certified. The FSEIR Addendum is proposed for the amendments to Title 22 Section 22.30.204 Agricultural Offset Requirements and Title 19 Section 19.07.042 Water Conservation Provisions. Also to be considered is the environmental determination that the project is categorically exempt under CEQA, pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(2). A Notice of Exemption has been prepared pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15062. A Class 8 Categorical Exemption is proposed for the amendments to Title 22 Section 22.94.025 Paso Robles Groundwater Basin Planning Area Standards.
