REQUEST: A Modification of a Conditional Use Permit (D-55-01) to an existing recycling facility to add the following to their existing operation: 1) increase monthly tonnage processing from 40,000 tons 55,000 tons; 2) add auto dismantlers license for the processing of “end of life” vehicles; 3) allow the use a leased parcel from the railroad directly adjacent to the north for storage and parking and 4) allow the proposed building to be constructed at a height of 69 feet instead of maximum 50 feet; and Architectural and Site Plan Review to allow a new 80,640 square foot storage building to house nonferrous separation equipment on 5 parcels totaling 19.92 acres and located in the M-2 (Heavy Industrial) Zone.
ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINATION: An Environmental Impact Report Addendum pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15081 has been completed. The modification of the use to increase the processing amount and to add the dismantlers license would not substantially increase the severity of impacts evaluated and determined in the 2006 Certified EIR, as demonstrated in the proposed Addendum. Accordingly, and based on the findings and information contained in the previous Certified EIR, the attached Addendum, and State CEQA Guidelines Section 15162(a)(1) to (3), the project would not result in new significant environmental effects or a substantial increase in the severity of previously identified significant effects requiring major revisions to the 2006 Certified EIR, nor is the need for new or additional mitigation measures with the exception of modifications to existing mitigation measures.
