The City of Clayton, in concert with its environmental consultant for the project, prepared this Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the Verna Way Residential Subdivision Project (proposed project). The proposed project site is located on 2.46 acres of land within the City of Clayton at 5718 Verna Way and 5675 Pine Hollow Road. The parcels are identified as Assessor’s Parcel Numbers (APNs) 120-043-037 and 120-043-038. In addition to this IS/MND, consideration of the following discretionary actions by the City is required for the proposed project:
Tentative Subdivision Map for subdivision of the site into six single-family lots;
Variance allowing for reduced lot widths;
Tree Removal Permit; and
Site Plan Review Permit.
This IS/MND identifies potentially significant environmental impacts for the following environmental areas:
Geology and Soils;
Hazards and Hazardous Materials; and
The environmental analysis determined that measures are available to mitigate potential adverse impacts to insignificant levels. As a result, this document serves as a MND, pursuant to Public Resources Code Sections 21064.5 and 21080(c) and Article 6 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines.
In accordance with the requirements of CEQA Guidelines Section 15071, this IS/MND describes the proposed project, identifies, analyzes, and evaluates the potential significant environmental impacts that may result from the proposed project, and identifies measures to mitigate adverse environmental impacts. With the mitigation measures identified in this document, the project would not have a significant impact on the environment.
All the technical reports and modeling results prepared for the project analysis are available upon request at the City of Clayton City Hall, located at 6000 Heritage Trail, Clayton, California, 94517.
