NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN OF THE RELEASE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW OF THE DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT (EIR) FOR THE TAPO-ALAMO PROJECT (PD-S-1045/TP-S-685/AHA-R-061).
The Project consists of a Planned Development Permit, Tentative Parcel Map, and Affordable Housing Agreement to redevelop a 6.9-acre property located on the northeast corner of the intersection of Tapo Street and Alamo Street in the City of Simi Valley, which is currently occupied by the Belwood Center commercial development. The Project proposes to remove the majority of the existing commercial center, and construct a 278-unit four-story apartment complex; remodel 8,100 s.f. of retail space; provide a total of 644 on-site parking spaces; and consolidate six parcels into two lots. The project would designate a total of 83 residential units (30% of proposed units) for affordable housing, including 75 low-income units, and 8 very-low income units. Based on the analysis included in the Draft EIR, the Project could result in potentially significant effects during temporary construction activities related to the potential to uncover unknown cultural resources, potentially contaminated soil associated with operations of an existing dry cleaners facility, and asbestos materials or lead based paint during demolition. Additionally, the project could result in long-term stationary source noise impacts associated with use of air conditioning units. Mitigation measures are provided to reduce these potential impacts to a less than significant level. All other impacts would be less than significant.The public review period for the Draft EIR is from June 25, 2019 – August 8, 2019. Copies of the Draft EIR are available for public review at the Simi Valley Department of Environmental Services, 2929 Tapo Canyon Road, and at the Simi Valley Public Library, 2969 Tapo Canyon Road. Copies of all documents incorporated by reference in the Draft EIR can be reviewed at the Department of Environmental Services. The Draft EIR is also available on the City’s Department of Environmental Services website at https://www.simivalley.org/departments/environmental-services (click on the Environmental Documents tab, then scroll to the Case Number to download). A Public Hearing on the proposed project has not been set and will be noticed at a later date. Comments should be submitted in writing by mail or email by August 8, 2019 no later than 5:00 p.m. to: Mr. Stratis Perros, Deputy Environmental Services Director/City Planner Department of Environmental Services, Planning Division 2929 Tapo Canyon Road Simi Valley, California 93063 or SPerros@simivalley.org.
