SUBJECT:
AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO AGREEMENT NO. A2016-059 WITH LSA ASSOCIATES, INC.
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize the execution of Amendment No. 1 to Agreement No. A2016-059 with LSA Associates, Inc., in the amount of $22,880, increasing the not-to-exceed amount to $83,837.
BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
On March 22, 2016, Council authorized the execution of an agreement with LSA Associates, Inc., to prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) Addendum for the Adoro-Belo Specific Plan that would be developed within the Vila Borba Planning Area 4 (TTM 16414).  The original EIR Addendum documents included the preparation of the following technical studies:
  • Traffic Impact Assessment
  • Air Quality/Greenhouse Gas Emissions Assessment
  • Peer review of Existing Biological and Cultural Studies
  • Native American Consultation (SB 18 and AB 52)
Subsequent to the execution of Agreement No. A2016-059 with LSA Associates Inc., the project applicant, Lennar, included an offsite detention basin and ancillary road as a component of the proposed project. The modification to the project description resulted in a change to the scope of work and increased the not-to-exceed amount by $22,880 for a revised total of $83,837.
ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:
This action of authorizing the execution of the agreement is not a project within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act (California Public Resources Code §§ 21000, et seq., “CEQA”) and CEQA Guidelines (Title 14 California Code of Regulations §§ 15000, et seq.) Section 15378 and is therefore exempt from CEQA.  It will not result in any direct or indirect physical change in the environment, because it is only a preliminary action required in order to study the proposed project.  
FISCAL IMPACT:
Preparation of CEQA documentation for the proposed Adoro-Belo Specific Plan located within the Vila Borba Planning Area 4 (TTM 16414) will not directly impact the City's General Fund nor will it have a fiscal impact to the City in that the project applicant will incur all costs associated with the preparation of the environmental documents. The services provided by LSA Associates, Inc., will be reimbursed to the City by the project developer through Trust Deposit Accounts. Amendment No. 1 to Agreement A2016-059 is in the amount of $22,880 for a revised not-to-exceed amount of $83,837.
