CHINO HILLS January 5, 2010 TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS FROM: CITY MANAGER SUBJECT: NEGATIVE DECLARATION, ZONE CHANGE 09ZCO1 TO CHANGE THE ZONING DESIGNATIONS OF PLANNED DEVELOPMENTS PD 13,165, PD 17-153, AND PD 19-163, AND DEVELOPMENT CODE AMENDMENT'09DCA04 AMENDING CHAPTER 16.64 SPECIFIC PLAN ADOPTION AND AMENDMENT RECOMMENDATION: Conduct a Public Hearing and based on the findings of fact: 1) Adopt a Resolution entitled: A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS ADOPTING THE NEGATIVE DECLARATION FOR ZONE CHANGE 09ZCO1 AND DEVELOPMENT CODE AMENDMENT 09DCA04. 2) Introduce an Ordinance entitled: AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS, CALIFORNIA ADOPTING ZONE CHANGE 09ZCO1. 3) Introduce an Ordinance entitled: AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS, CALIFORNIA AMENDING CHAPTER 16.64 OF THE CHINO HILLS MUNICIPAL CODE PERTAINING TO SPECIFIC PLAN ADOPTION AND AMENDMENT. BACKGROUND In reviewing City files, staff discovered that the preliminary development plans for PD 13-165 and PD 19-163 expired without the approval of a final development plan; therefore, the development standards proposed within these documents are now void. It was also discovered that PD 17-153 does not provide development standards to guide the development of the site. State law requires that all zoning districts provide development standards for the properties located within those zones. P1 January 12, 2010 Page 2 SUBJECT: NEGATIVE DECLARATION, ZONE CHANGE 09ZCO1 TO CHANGE THE ZONING DESIGNATIONS OF PLANNED DEVELOPMENTS PD 13-165, PD 17-153, AND PD 19-163, AND DEVELOPMENT CODE AMENDMENT 09DCA04 AMENDING CHAPTER 16.64 SPECIFIC PLAN ADOPTION AND AMENDMENT In order to establish standards for these parcels, the City determined that a zone change was necessary and that the most appropriate zoning districts for these sites were those that reflected the General Plan Land Use Element. The General Plan provides a vision for the future of the community and all actions taken by the City are required to be consistent with the goals, policies, and intent expressed in the elements of the General Plan. The City proposes Zone Change 09ZC01 to establish the zoning of the properties within these planned developments based upon the land use designation provided in the General Plan. During the process of determining the appropriate zoning for the properties, staff also considered the effectiveness of the Specific Plan guidelines provided in the Development Code. Development Code Chapter 16.64 Specific Plan Adoption and Amendment requires that a project be at least twenty (20) acres for the adoption of a specific plan to be considered. Recent changes in legislation, such as Senate Bill 375, which is intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by integrating land use and transportation planning, will cause changes in the development pattern of the City. These changes are likely to include smaller and more challenging infill development projects. The reduction of the minimum project size would provide greater flexibility for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in these types of smaller development proposals. The greater flexibility afforded to projects within a specific plan allows development to be tailored to the planning challenges and opportunities presented by unique properties. The adoption of a specific plan is a legislative act and the City retains full discretionary authority to adopt or deny a proposal for the creation of a specific plan. Staff recommends that the minimum size be reduced to five (5) acres. At the Planning Commission Hearing on December 1, 2009, the Planning Commission reviewed the project and inquired about distinctions between specific plans and planned developments and asked for the approximate number and location of the additional properties that would become eligible for the adoption of a specific plan if the proposed Development Code Amendment is approved. Staff discussed the characteristics of specific plans and planned developments with the Commission and this discussion was incorporated into the analysis of the Development Code Amendment in this report. The Planning Commission voted to continue the item and instructed staff to prepare exhibits identifying the properties that would be eligible for the adoption of a specific plan under the current twenty (20) acre minimum project size and those that would be eligible if the minimum size was reduced to five (5) acres. Staff presented the requested exhibits at the December 15th meeting of the Commission. The Planning Commission unanimously adopted the resolutions recommending approval of the project to the City Council.

The City determined the appropriate zoning designation for each of these properties by consulting the Land Use Element of the General Plan, which is the guiding document of the City. Staff also evaluated the proposed project for compliance with Government Code Section 65863 (AB No. 2292 referred to as Dutra legislation) and the City of Chino Hills Measure U (Ordinance No. 123 enacted December 3, 1999). Dutra legislation essentially prohibits a city from reducing, requiring, or permitting the reduction of residential density for any parcel; while Measure U essentially prohibits an increase in residential density from the density established by the Chino Hills Specific Plan, General Plan, Zoning Map or any finalized development agreements (in effect prior to the passage of the legislation in 1999) for any parcel. The proposed zone change is not associated with a particular project and does not include any development of these sites. The purpose of the zone change is to provide zoning designations and development standards for these properties that are consistent with the goals, policies, and intent of the City's General Plan. PD 13-165 The proposed zone change will establish the zoning as Agriculture-Ranch (R-A) for the properties that are currently designated as PD 13-165; except for the parcel within PD 13- 165 that is located north of Carbon Canyon Road (SR-142), which would be designated as Low Density Residential (R-S). The proposed zoning for these parcels complies with the requirements of the Dutra legislation and Measure U in that the new zoning designations are consistent with the land use designation and densities established for these properties in the General Plan, With the expiration of the planned development, the densities designated in the General Plan constitute the maximum permissible densities under Measure U. As the proposed zoning for this parcel is consistent with the land use designated in the General Plan, the proposed zone change is consistent with the restrictions of Measure U. Staff also compared the development standards of the planned development with the standards set forth in the Development Code for the R-A zoning district (see Exhibit "A"). The R-A zoning district requires larger lot sizes, greater setbacks and building separation, the provision of more improved parkland, the incorporation of more stringent ridgeline protections, fire protection requirements, access requirements, and more detailed analysis of traffic impacts. However, the expired planned development required greater landscape screening of the development from Carbon Canyon Road as it presumed that Carbon Canyon Road would be designated a scenic highway (which has not occurred). P7 January 12, 2010 Page 8 SUBJECT: NEGATIVE DECLARATION, ZONE CHANGE 09ZCO1 TO CHANGE THE ZONING DESIGNATIONS OF PLANNED DEVELOPMENTS PD 13-165, PD 17-153, AND PD 19-163,AND DEVELOPMENT CODE AMENDMENT 09DCA04 AMENDING CHAPTER 16.64 SPECIFIC PLAN ADOPTION AND AMENDMENT PD 17-153 The proposed zone change will establish the zoning as Rural Residential (R-R) for the properties that are currently designated as PD 17-153. The proposed zoning for these parcels complies with the requirements of the Dutra legislation and Measure U in that the new zoning designations are consistent with the land use designation and densities established for these properties in the General Plan. A comparison of development standards is not available for this property because the planned development does not provide any development standards. PD 19-163 The proposed zone change will establish the zoning as Agriculture-Ranch (R-A) for the properties located within PD 19-163. The proposed zoning for these parcels complies with the requirements of the Dutra legislation and Measure U in that the new zoning designations are consistent with the land use designation and densities established for these properties in the General Plan. With the expiration of the planned development, the densities designated in the General Plan constitute the maximum permissible densities under Measure U. As the proposed zoning for this parcel is consistent with the land use designated in the General Plan, the proposed zone change is consistent with the restrictions of Measure U. Staff also compared the development standards of the planned development with the standards set forth in the Development Code for the R-A zoning district (see Exhibit "A"). The R-A zoning district requires larger lot sizes, greater setbacks and building separation, the provision of more improved parkland, the incorporation of more stringent ridgeline protections, fire protection requirements, access requirements, and more detailed analysis of traffic impacts. Development Code Amendment The Development Code Amendment proposes a reduction in the minimum project size required for the adoption of a specific plan. A specific plan is a document governing land use and implementing the goals and policies of the General Plan in a specified geographical area. State law requires that a specific plan identify the land uses for the properties within its extent, analyze and specify the relationship between public and private infrastructure (i.e. transportation, utilities, etc.) and the designated land uses, provide standards and guidelines for future development, and discuss the phasing, programs, and financing required to attain the vision outlined in the document. The adoption of a specific plan is a legislative act subject to the full discretion of the City. Once adopted, the specific plan replaces the zoning of an area and offers the opportunity for greater flexibility in the development of properties, allowing, for example, clustered or mixed-use projects. The specific plan's emphasis on the implementation of the goals and policies of the General Plan through the coordinated planning of land uses and infrastructure development has made it an increasingly prominent tool in planning practice. P8 January 12, 2010 Page 9 SUBJECT: NEGATIVE DECLARATION, ZONE CHANGE 09ZCO1 TO CHANGE THE ZONING DESIGNATIONS OF PLANNED DEVELOPMENTS PD 13-165, PD 17-153, AND PD 19-163, AND DEVELOPMENT CODE AMENDMENT 09DCA04 AMENDING CHAPTER 16.64 SPECIFIC PLAN ADOPTION AND AMENDMENT A planned development, by contrast, is typically focused on a specific area of land and primarily provides land use designations and development standards for the properties located within its boundaries. The adoption of a planned development is a two-step process. The preliminary development plan acts as a development suitability analysis and comprehensive plan for the development and must be approved by the City Council. The final development plan, reviewed by the Community Development Director for conformance with the preliminary development plan, requires the further definition of planned uses and a detailed site plan for the development of properties within the planned development. The request for Development Code Amendment 09DCA04 is intended to provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The City's Development Code requires that projects be a minimum of twenty (20) acres for the consideration of a specific plan. The Development Code recognizes that large projects may benefit from the specific plan's focused planning efforts wherein infrastructure, land use relationships, land use intensities, public service needs, and resource protection goals are carefully examined and planned in a comprehensive manner. As the City becomes increasingly developed, it appears that some of the remaining undeveloped sites in the City may benefit from the adoption of a specific plan to address the unique challenges and opportunities of these properties. The reduction of the minimum project size for specific plans from twenty (20) acres to a minimum size of five (5) acres would allow smaller projects to take advantage of these benefits. While the proposed reduction of the minimum project size for the adoption of a specific plan is not associated with any particular development, the City has received inquiries concerning the possibility of creating a specific plan for smaller projects. State law does not specify a minimum project size for specific plans, but leaves this determination to the discretion of the local jurisdiction. A survey of the surrounding and similar cities found that most do not require a minimum project size for specific plans. Pursuant to the Planning Commission's request, staff prepared three (3) maps showing the vacant properties that would be potentially eligible to propose a specific plan if the minimum project size remained unchanged at twenty (20) acres, were reduced to ten (10) acres, and was reduced to five (5) acres (see Exhibits "B", "C", and "D"). Additionally, two (2) maps were prepared identifying only those parcels that would become eligible to propose a specific plan if the minimum project size is reduced to ten (10) acres and if it were reduced to five (5) acres (see Exhibits "E" and "F"). As the minimum project size requirement is reduced, the number of properties potentially eligible for the creation of a specific plan generally increases. The distribution of these properties in the City remains fairly consistent with the majority of the properties concentrated in the western region of the City north of the State Park or in the eastern region of the City around Soquel Canyon Parkway and Butterfield Ranch Road. While the reduction of the minimum size would result in a greater number of properties eligible to propose a specific plan, the adoption of a specific plan is a legislative act and the City retains full discretionary authority to adopt or deny a proposal for the creation of a specific plan. Unlike a Site Plan Review or tentative subdivision, the adoption of a Specific Plan is not only contingent upon whether or not the project complies with applicable development P9 January 12, 2010 Page 10 SUBJECT: NEGATIVE DECLARATION, ZONE CHANGE 09ZC01 TO CHANGE THE ZONING DESIGNATIONS OF PLANNED DEVELOPMENTS PD 13-165, PD 17-153, AND PD 19-163, AND DEVELOPMENT CODE AMENDMENT 09DCA04 AMENDING CHAPTER 16.64 SPECIFIC PLAN ADOPTION AND AMENDMENT standards and mitigates potential impacts, but also upon a determination by the City Council that the proposed project is consistent with the vision and goals for the City. The following are the recommended Development Code Amendments: ■ Section 16.64.010 was amended to refer to "certain properties" instead of "certain large properties". • Section 16.64.020.A was amended to read, "A minimum project size of five (5) acres is required for a specific plan." ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT An Initial Study was prepared and recommended the adoption of a Negative Declaration (ND) for the project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines and the City of Chino Hills Procedures for Implementing the CEQA Guidelines. The ND determined that the approval of the Zone Change and Development Code Amendment would not create negative impacts to the environment. As required by CEQA, the ND for the project was distributed for public review and comment from October 30, 2009 until November 30, 2009. PUBLIC COMMENTS Notices of the intent to adopt a negative declaration and of the public hearing regarding this project were mailed to property owners within a 300-foot radius of the project site on October 29, 2009. The description of the proposal and the notices of the intent to adopt a negative declaration and of the public hearing were also published in the Chino Champion on October 31, 2009. As of the writing of this staff report, staff has received a comment letter from the Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians indicating the project is located within the bounds of their Tribal Traditional Use Areas, but they do not have any specific concerns regarding the project. Additionally, staff received a notice from the Governor's Office of Planning and Research indicating that the project has complied with the State Clearinghouse review requirements for draft environmental documents and that no state agencies submitted comments concerning this project. There were not requests to speak from the public at the Planning Commission hearings held for this project. REVIEW BY AFFECTED DEPARTMENTS: This item has been reviewed by the Community Services Department, Engineering Department, and the City Attorney's Office. FISCAL IMPACT: There is no fiscal impact associated with the adoption of the Resolution and Ordinances.

The City Council does hereby make the following findings of fact: a. The project proponent, the City of Chino Hills, requested approval of a Negative Declaration, Zone Change 09ZC01 to change the zoning designations of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153, and PD 19-163, and Development Code Amendment 09DCA04 for the amendments to Chapter 16.64 Specific Plan Adoption and Amendment. b. The properties subject to Zone Change 09ZCO1 are located within the Carbon Canyon area and are legally described as, PD 13-165: 1000-511- 39, 1000-511-38, 1000-162-65, 1017-403-10 and 1033-012-16, PD 17- 153: 1031-011-02 and 1031-011-49, and PD 19-163: 1017-261-24. Development Code Amendment 09DCA04 would be effective City-wide. c. The applicant proposes Zone Change 09ZC01 to provide zoning designations and development standards that are consistent with the City's General Plan for several properties that are currently within expired or inadequately-defined planned developments. The approval of the zone change would ensure that the future development of these properties is consistent with the goals and policies of the General Plan and the standards and regulations of the Development Code. The proposed zone 1 of 5 P12 change would establish Agriculture-Ranch (R-A) as the zoning district of the properties currently designated as PD 13-165; except for the parcel within PD 13-165 that is located north of Carbon Canyon Road (SR-142), and legally described as 1000-511-39, which would be designated as Low Density Residential (R-S). The properties within PD 17-153 would be designated Rural Residential (R-R) and the property designated as PD 19-161 would be designated as Agriculture-Ranch (R-A). The appropriate zoning designation for each of these properties was determined by consulting the Land Use Element of the General Plan, which is the guiding document of the City. The General Plan provides a vision for the future of the community and all actions taken by the City are required to be consistent with the goals, policies, and intent expressed in the elements of the General Plan. The applicant also proposes Development Code Amendment 09DCA04 to amend Chapter 16.64 Specific Plan Adoption and Amendment to reduce the minimum project size requirement for the adoption of a specific plan from twenty (20) acres to five (5) acres. A specific plan is a planning tool that provides detailed guidelines, regulations, and standards for the properties within a specified geographical area of the City. The specific plan allows for the comprehensive planning and implementation of a development plan for an area in greater detail than may be possible utilizing the zoning and development code regulations. Reducing the minimum project size would provide greater flexibility for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project. d. In accordance with the California Environmental Regulations, Title 14, Section 15000 et seq., and the rules, regulations, and procedures for implementing the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines as adopted by the City of Chino Hills a determination has been made that the proposed project will not have a significant impact on the environment, and a Negative Declaration (ND) is recommended for approval. The Draft Negative Declaration was available for public comments from October 30, 2009 thru November 30, 2009. e. The Planning Commission reviewed the proposed project on December 1, 2009, and continued the item to December 15, 2009, at which point the Planning Commission recommended approval of the project to the City Council. 2 of 5 P13 f. A duly noticed public hearing before the City Council was conducted on January 12, 2010, at which time all interested persons were given an opportunity to testify regarding in support of, or in opposition to the project. SECTION 2. Based upon oral and written testimony and other evidence received at the public hearing held on Zone Change 09ZC01 and Development Code Amendment 09DCA04, and upon studies and investigations made by the City Council and on its behalf, the Council does hereby determine that the proposed Zone Change and Development Code Amendment will not have a significant impact on the environment and a Negative Declaration is required pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines as adopted by the City of Chino Hills. SECTION 3. The City Council of the City of Chino Hills does hereby adopt the Negative Declaration for Zone Change 09ZC01 to change the zoning designations of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153, and PD 19-163, and Development Code Amendment 09DCA04 for the amendments to Chapter 16.64 Specific Plan Adoption and Amendment, based on the findings included within this resolution. 3 of 5 P14 SECTION 4. The City Council Secretary shall certify as to the adoption of this resolution. PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED this 12th day of January, 2010. W. C. "BILL" KRUGER, MAYOR ATTEST: MARY M.

SECTION 2. With regard to Development Code Amendment 09DCA04, Section 16.64.010 of Title 16, Chapter 16.64 of the Chino Hills Municipal Code is amended by revising the section to read as follows: The city recognizes that certain properties in Chino Hills may benefit from focused planning efforts wherein infrastructure, land use relationships, land use intensities, public service needs, and resource protection goals can be carefully examined and planned in a comprehensive manner.

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS, CALIFORNIA ADOPTING ZONE CHANGE 09ZC01 WHEREAS, the Planned Developments for the properties within PD 13-165, PD 17-153, and PD 19-163 have either expired or fail to provide adequate development standards as required by state law; NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS DOES HEREBY ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS: SECTION 1. The City Council does hereby make the following findings of fact: a. The project proponent, the City of Chino Hills, requested approval of a Negative Declaration and Zone Change 09ZC01 to change the zoning designations of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153, and PD 19-163. b. The properties subject to Zone Change 09ZC01 are located within the Carbon Canyon area and are legally described as, PD 13-165: 1000-511- 39, 1000-511-38, 1000-162-65, 1017-403-10 and 1033-012-16, PD 17- 153: 1031-011-02 and 1031-011-49, and PD 19-163: 1017-261-24. c. The applicant proposes Zone Change 09ZC01 to provide zoning designations and development standards that are consistent with the City's General Plan for several properties that are currently within expired or inadequately-defined planned developments. The approval of the zone change would ensure that the future development of these properties is consistent with the goals and policies of the General Plan and the standards and regulations of the Development Code. The proposed zone change would establish Agriculture-Ranch (R-A) as the zoning district of the properties currently designated as PD 13-165; except for the parcel within PD 13-165 that is located north of Carbon Canyon Road (SR-142), and legally described as 1000-511-39, which would be designated as Low Density Residential (R-S). The properties within PD 17-153 would be designated Rural Residential (R-R) and the property designated as PD 19-161 would be designated as Agriculture-Ranch (R-A). The appropriate zoning designation for each of these properties was determined by consulting the Land Use Element of the General Plan, which is the guiding document of the City. The General Plan provides a vision for the future of the community and all actions taken by the City are required to be consistent with the goals, policies, and intent expressed in the elements of the General Plan. 1 P19 d. In accordance with the California Environmental Regulations, Title 14, Section 15000 et seq., and the rules, regulations, and procedures for implementing the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines as adopted by the City of Chino Hills a determination has been made that the proposed project will not have a significant impact on the environment, and a Negative Declaration (ND) is recommended for approval. The Draft Negative Declaration was available for public comments from October 30, 2009 thru November 30, 2009. e. The Planning Commission reviewed the proposed project on December 1, 2009, and continued the item to December 15, 2009, at which point the Planning Commission recommended approval of the project to the City Council. f. A duly noticed public hearing before the City Council was conducted on January 12, 2010, at which time all interested persons were given an opportunity to testify regarding in support of, or in opposition to the project.

The proposed Zone Change will change the zoning designations of the specified properties to designations that are consistent with the Land Uses specified in the Land Use Element of the General Plan. (b) FINDING: That the proposed zone changes will not adversely affect surrounding properties. FACT: The proposed zone changes have been carefully reviewed through the project Negative Declaration and the planning process and have been found to be consistent with the goals, policies and objectives of the General Plan. The proposed Zone Change will provide development standards to guide the future development of these sites and will cause these properties to be subject to all of the regulations, standards and guidelines contained within the Development Code. These standards will 2 P20 ensure that the proposed zone change will not adversely affect surrounding properties. SECTION 3. The City Council of the City of Chino Hills does hereby approve Zone Change 09ZC01, based on the findings included within this ordinance. The zoning designations of the subject properties shall be established as follows: The properties legally described as shall be designated as: Assessor's Parcel Numbers: 1000-511-39 Low Density Residential (R-S) 1031-011-02 and 1031-011-49 Rural Residential (R-R) 1000-511-38, 1000-162-65, Agriculture-Ranch (R-A) 1017-403-10, 1033-012-16 and 1017-261-24 SECTION 4.

Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The preliminary development plans for PD 13-165 and PD 19-163 have expired without the approval of a final development plan; therefore, the development standards proposed within these documents are now void. PD 17-153 does not provide development standards to guide the development of the site. Changing the zoning designations of these properties will provide conformity between the City's General Plan Land Use Element and the City's Zoning Map. (Exhibits "B" and "C"). In order to establish standards for these parcels, the City determined that a zone change was necessary and that the most appropriate zoning districts for these sites were those that reflected the General Plan Land Use Element. Changing the zoning designation of these properties will bring them into conformance with the City's General Plan Land Use Element and provide standards for the future development of these sites. State law requires that all zoning districts provide development standards for the properties located within those zones. This environmental review does not assess potential development on the subject sites. The proposed changes in zoning designation will not result in the intensification of the potential development of these sites. The purpose of the project is to designate the zoning of these sites to be consistent with the General Plan and to provide development standards. Further environmental review will be required when development is proposed on these sites. This Initial Study also assesses the potential environmental impacts of a proposed amendment to Chapter 16.64 of the City's Development Code, which would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size (currently twenty acres) required for the adoption of a specific plan. Reducing or eliminating the minimum project size would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project, but is being proposed in response to a perceived need for greater flexibility in the future development of properties within the City. The results of the Initial Study show that there is no substantial evidence that the Project would have a significant effect on the environment. A Negative Declaration is being recommended for adoption, Initial Study—09ZC01 and 09DCA01 Page 2 October 28, 2009 P 3 3 1. INTRODUCTION Purpose and Scope This Initial Study serves as the environmental review of the proposed Project, as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., the State CEQA Guidelines, and the City of Chino Hills' Local Guidelines for Implementing CEQA. In accordance with Section 15063 of the State CEQA Guidelines, the City is required to prepare an Initial Study to determine if the project may have a significant effect on the environment. This Initial Study is intended to be an informational document providing the Planning Commission, City Council, other public agencies, and the general public with an objective assessment of the potential environmental impacts that could result from the implementation of the project, Incorporation by Reference This Initial Study is based in part on the information and analysis contained in other environmental and planning documents. These documents are hereby incorporated by reference in their entirety into this Initial Study, as authorized by Section 15150 of the State CEQA Guidelines. All of the documents incorporated by reference are listed in Section B of this Initial Study. 2. EVALUATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS An Environmental Checklist Form (Form) has been used to evaluate the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed project. The Form has been prepared by the Resources Agency of California to assist local governmental agencies, such as the City of Chino Hills, in complying with the requirements of the Statutes and Guidelines for implementing the California Environmental Quality Act. The Form has been used by the City of Chino Hills to review the effects of the proposed project with respect to the following environmental factors. The environmental factors checked below would be potentially affected by this project, involving at least one impact that is a "Potentially Significant Impact". Based on the analysis in this Initial Study, none of the following environmental factors are affected by the proposed project. ❑ Aesthetics ❑ Hydrology/Water Quality 0 Population/Housing ❑ Agriculture Resources 0 Hazards & Hazards 0 Public Services Materials ❑ Air Quality 0 Land Use and Planning 0 Recreation ❑ Biological Resources 0 Mineral Resources 0 Transportation/Traffic ❑ Cultural Resources ❑ Noise 0 Utilities/Service Systems ❑ Geology/Soils Initial Study—09ZCO1 and 09DCA01 Page 3 October 28, 2009 P 3 4 In the Form, a series of questions is asked about the Project for each of the above-listed environmental factors. A brief explanation is then provided for each question on the Form. There are four possible responses to each question: A. Potentially Significant Impact. This response Is used when the project has the potential to have an effect on the environment that is considered to be significant and adverse. B. Potentially Significant Unless Mitigation Incorporated. This response is used when the project has the potential to have a significant impact, which is not expected to occur because: a. Mitigation measures have been incorporated into the project design in order to reduce the impact to a less than significant level; or, b. Adherence to existing policies, regulations, and/or design standards would reduce the impact of the project to a less than significant level. C. Less Than Significant impact. This response is used when the potential environmental impact of the project is determined to be below known or measurable thresholds of significance and thus would not require mitigation. D. No Impact. This response Is used when the proposed project does not have any measurable impact. Initial Study—09ZC01 and 09DCA01 Page 4 October 28, 2009 P35 3. ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINATION On the basis of this initial evaluation, I find that: The proposed project could not have a significant effect on the environment, and a Negative Declaration will be prepared. ❑ Although the proposed project could have a significant effect on the environment, there will not be a significant effect in this case because the mitigation measures, described in Exhibit C (attached), have been added to the project. A Mitigated Negative Declaration will be prepared. ❑ The proposed project may have a significant effect on the environment, and an Environmental Impact Report is required. ❑ The proposed project may have a potentially significant impact unless mitigation is incorporated, but at least one of the impacts has been: 1) adequately analyzed in an earlier document pursuant to applicable legal standards and 2) addressed by mitigation measures based on the earlier analysis as described on the attached sheets. An Environmental Impact Report is required, but it is to analyze only those impacts that have not already been addressed. ❑ Although the proposed project could have a significant effect on the environment, because all potentially significant effects (a) have been analyzed adequately in an earlier Environmental Impact Report (EIR) or in a Negative Declaration pursuant to applicable legal standards, and (b) have been avoided or mitigated pursuant to that earlier EIR or Negative Declaration, including revisions or mitigation measures that are imposed upon the proposed project, nothing further is required.

PROJECT BACKGROUND: Project Title: Zone Change 09ZC01 and Development Code Amendment 09DCA01 — Zone Change of Planned Development PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 and a Development Code Amendment to reduce or eliminate the minimum project size requirement for the creation of a specific plan Initial Study—09ZC01 and 09DCA01 Page 5 October 28, 2009 P 3 6 Location: The zone change affects three (3) sites in the City (see Exhibit "A") and the development code amendment is effective city-wide Project Sponsor: City of Chino Hills 14000 City Center Drive Chino Hills, California 91709 Lead Agency Staff: Ryan Gackstetter, Associate Planner, Telephone: (909) 364-2749 Project Description: The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally, an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be designated as Low Density Residential (R-S). The preliminary development plans for PD 13-165 and PD 19-163 have expired without the approval of a final development plan; therefore, the development standards proposed within these documents are now void. PD 17-153 does not provide development standards to guide the development of the site. Changing the zoning designation of these properties will provide conformity between the City's General Plan Land Use Element and the City's Zoning Map and will provide standards for the future development of these sites. This project does not propose any physical development of these sites and will not result in the intensification of any future development or use beyond the uses and intensities designated in the City's General Plan. Additionally, an amendment to Chapter 16.64 of the City's Development Code is proposed, which would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size (currently, twenty acres) required for the adoption of a specific plan. Reducing or eliminating the minimum project size would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project, but is being proposed in response to a perceived need for greater flexibility in the future development of properties within the City. Approvals Required: In order to complete the Project, the City of Chino Hills would need to take the following actions: Adoption of a Negative Declaration; and Approval of Zone Change 09ZCO1 and Development Code Amendment 09DCA01. 6.

The City requires development projects to submit a preliminary air quality analysis using URBEMIS as part of the application materials. The information provided in the preliminary air quality analysis will be used in the environmental review to identify potential impacts and mitigation measures, if appropriate. f No Impact(Generate Greenhouse Gas Emissions). On April 13, 2009, the Governor's Office of Planning and Research (OPR) submitted to the Secretary for Natural Resources its proposed amendments to the state CEQA Guidelines for greenhouse gas emissions, as required by Senate Bill 97. These proposed CEQA Guideline amendments would provide guidance to public agencies regarding the analysis and mitigation of the effects of greenhouse gas emissions in draft CEQA documents. The Natural Resources Agency will conduct formal rulemaking in 2009, prior to certifying and adopting the amendments, as required by Senate Bill 97. The rulemaking process will be completed by January 1, 2010, as required by Public Resources Code Section 21 083.05(b). This Initial Study uses the proposed amendments to the CEQA Guidelines as well as the OPR Technical Advisory on CEQA and Climate Change: (Published June 2008) to analyze the impacts of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the project. Background Global Climate Change refers to alterations in weather features which occur across the Earth as a whole, such as temperature, wind patterns, precipitation, and storms, Global temperatures are modulated by naturally occurring atmospheric gases, such as water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. These gases allow sunlight into the Earth's atmosphere, but prevent radiative heat from escaping into outer space, thus altering the Earth's energy balance in a phenomenon called the greenhouse effect. "Greenhouse gas" or "greenhouse gases" includes but is not limited to: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulfur hexafluoride. (Reference: Health and Safety Code Section 38505(g).) The OPR Technical Advisory on CEQA and Climate Change recommends the following approach to the CEQA analysis. Identify Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions: Lead agencies should make a good-faith effort, based on available information, to calculate, model, or estimate the amount of CO2 and other GHG emissions from a project ® Determine Significance:As with any environmental impact, lead agencies must determine what constitutes a significant impact. In the absence of regulatory standards for GHG emissions or other scientific data to clearly Initial Study-09ZCO1 and 09DCA01 Page 1B October 28, 2009 P49 define what constitutes a "significant impact" individual lead agencies may undertake a project by-project analysis, consistent with available guidance and current CEQA practice. Mitigate Impacts: Mitigation measures will vary with the type of project being contemplated, but may include alternative project designs or locations that conserve energy and water, measures that reduce vehicle miles traveled by fossil-fueled vehicles, measures that contribute to established regional or programmatic mitigation strategies, and measures that sequester carbon to offset the emissions from the project. Identify GHG Emissions State law defines GHG to include the following: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4nitrous oxide (N20), hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride (Reference. Health and Safety Code, section 38505(g).) The most common GI-IG that results from human activity is carbon dioxide (CO2), followed by methane and nitrous oxide. The three main sources of greenhouse gas emissions from homes are electricity use, heating and waste, of which CO2 is the most prevalent source. The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively. The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. As a result of the proposed zoning designation changes, the potential number of dwelling units may be increased by approximately twenty-nine (29) units. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City- wide. While this project does not include any physical development, and therefore does , not cause any direct GHG emissions impact, the increase in the number of potential dwelling units may result in an indirect impact. Table 1 below identifies the CO2 emissions from a typical single family home and the estimates the emissions from the resulting from a twenty-nine (29) unit increase in the number of potential dwelling units. Table 1.

Although lead agencies typically rely on local or regional definitions of significance for most environmental issues, the global nature of climate change warrants investigation of a statewide threshold of significance for GHG emissions..." According to the California Air Resources Board Greenhouse Gas Inventory for 2000- 2006, 31.12 million tonnes (i.e.metric ton) of CO2 equivalent was generated in California in 2006. Based on the emissions shown in Table 1 above and compared to California's total, the CO2 emissions resulting from project's potential increase in the number of dwelling units is so small it is considered infinitesimal. The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the subject properties to be consistent with the land uses envisioned in the General Plan. Therefore, there will be no impact on greenhouse gas emissions associated with this project. Mitigate Impacts As the project will not result in a potentially significant impact and does not propose any physical development, mitigation measures are unnecessary at this time. However, greenhouse gas emissions and opportunities for emissions reductions will be evaluated as part of the required environmental review, when the development of these properties is proposed in the future. g No Impact(Conflict with Plans to Reduce GHG Emissions) The primary planning legislation enacted by the State to address GHG Emissions is described as follows: ® Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32), the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006: AB 32 establishes a state goal of reducing GHG emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020 (a reduction of approximately 25 percent from forecast emission levels) with further reductions to follow. The law requires the Air Resources Board (ARB) to establish a program to track and report GHG emissions; approve a scoping plan for achieving the maximum technologically feasible and cost effective reductions from sources of GHG emissions; adopt early reduction measures to begin moving forward; and adopt, implement and enforce regulations —including market mechanisms such as "cap and-trade" programs to ensure the required reductions occur. Senate Bill 97(SB 97): Enacted in 2007, SB 97 amends the CEQA statute to clearly establish that GHG emissions and the effects of GHG emissions are appropriate subjects for CEQA analysis. It directs the Governor's Office of Planning and Research to develop draft CEQA Guidelines "for the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions or the effects of greenhouse gas emissions" by July 1, 2009 and directs the Resources Agency to certify and adopt the CEQA Guidelines by January 1, 2010. Initial Study—09ZCO1 and 09DCA01 Page 20 October 28, 2009 P51 Senate Bill 375 (SB 375): Enacted in September 2008, SB 375 requires ARB to establish regional targets for reductions on GHG emission from the use of light duty vehicles associated with land use decisions; requires metropolitan planning agencies to create a Sustainable Community Strategy in their Regional Transportation Plans (RTP)to meet the GHG emissions targets established by ARB; requires that funding decisions for regional transportation projects be internally consistent within the RTP; aligns the Regional Housing Needs Assessment with the RTP; and provides CEQA relief (i.e. streamlining and exemptions) for projects that are consistent with the Sustainable Communities Strategy. As noted in the analysis under Checklist Item IIIg above, the Project was analyzed using the OPR Technical Advisory on CEQA and Climate Chance: (Published June 20081 which is intended to address GHG Emissions in a manner consistent with the above described legislation. Therefore, the project is not in conflict with any plans to regulate GHG Emissions. Checklist Item IV.

Checklist Item IX. Land Use and Planning a. No Impact(Physical Division). The project will not physically divide any established communities. The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively, Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City-wide. b. No Impact(Land Use Plans). The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City-wide. The project will not conflict with any applicable land use plan, policy or regulation. Two legislative acts, Government Code Section 65863 (AB No. 2292 referred to as Dutra legislation effective January 1, 2003) and the City of Chino Hills' Measure U (Ordinance No. 123 enacted December 3, 1999) were evaluated as part of this project. Dutra legislation essentially prohibits a city from reducing, requiring or permitting the reduction of the residential density for any parcel to a residential density that is below the density that was utilized by the State Department of Housing and Community Development in determining compliance with the housing element law, unless the reduction is consistent with the city's general plan, including the housing element. While changing the zoning designation of PD 17-153 to R-R will not result in a reduction of residential density, changing the zoning designation of PD 13-165 and PD 19-163 to R-A will result in minor changes in density. PD 13-165 permitted a maximum of 114 units on 545 acres for a maximum density of .21 dwelling units per acre. The project includes changing the zoning designation from PD 13-165 to R-A, which permits a maximum density of.20 dwelling units per acre. Additionally, an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be designated as Low Density Residential (R-S), which permits a Initial Study—09ZC01 and 09DCA01 Page 24 October 28, 2009 P55 maximum density of 6 dwelling units per acre. Therefore, the change in zoning designation will increase the potential number of units from 114 to 144, a change of thirty (30) units for the properties currently zoned as PD 13-165. Changing the zoning designation of PD 19-163 to R-A will result in the loss of one (1) unit as the planned development allows a maximum of eight (8) units, but only seven (7) units will be permissible for the 39.5-acre site at the maximum .20 unit per acre density for the R-A zoning district. In total, the project will result in a potential increase of twenty-nine (29) dwelling units. The City's Housing Element indicates that the number of new dwelling units constructed or on available sites exceeds the Regional Housing Needs Assessment housing unit construction need by 313 units; with the proposed project the remaining sites identified in the Housing Element will exceed the housing unit construction need by 343 units. The potential number of dwelling units for these sites will be revised during the City's next update of the Housing Element. Therefore, pursuant to Government Code 65863 (b), the proposed project complies with the Dutra legislation in that (1) because the proposed project will ensure conformity between the General Plan Land Use Element and the Zoning Map, the reduction resulting from the rezoning of PD 19-163 to R-A is consistent with the City's adopted General Plan and Housing Element, (2) the net effect of the project will be a potential increase of twenty-nine (29) dwelling units and (3) because the remaining sites identified in the Housing Element would still allow construction of units in excess of the City's share of the regional housing need, the remaining sites identified in the Housing Element are adequate to accommodate the City's share of the regional housing need pursuant to Section 65584. The City's Measure U legislation essentially prohibits an increase in residential density from the density established by the Chino Hills Specific Plan, General Plan, Zoning Map or any finalized development agreements (in effect prior to the passage of the legislation in 1999) for any parcel except when necessary to meet the City's minimum mandated Housing Element requirements as set forth in Government Code Section 65590, et seq. Changing the zoning designation of PD 17-153 to R-R and PD 19-163 to R-A will not result in an increase of residential density from the density designated in the General Plan Land Use Element adopted in 1994. While changing the zoning designation of PD 13-165 to R-A and R-S will result in a net increase in the number of residential units for these properties as previously discussed, it does not increase the density of these properties beyond the density designated in the General Plan Land Use Element adopted in 1994. The project is intended to clarify the potential uses and the development standards applicable to the properties within the expired or incomplete planned developments. As the expired planned developments are no longer in effect, the City is obligated to provide a zoning classification for these properties that establishes development standards and land uses to guide future development in a manner that is consistent with the goals, policies, and intent of the General Plan. To this end, the City is proposing to change the zoning of these properties to correspond with the land use designations of the General Plan. The project does not cause an increase in residential density for any of the project sites from the densities established in the General Plan at the time that Ordinance No. 123 was adopted and, therefore, does not conflict with Ordinance No. 123. c. No Impact(Habitat Conservation, Natural Community Conservation) The project sites are not located within an area that is covered by a habitat conservation plan or a natural community conservation plan. Initial Study—09ZCO1 and 09DCA01 Page 25 October 28, 2009 P56 Checklist Item X. Mineral Resources. a-b No Impact(Loss of Mineral Resources, Site Delineated as Mineral Resource Site). The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively, Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City-wide. Development proposed in the future will be required to submit an application to the City, which will be reviewed for conformance with the design guidelines and development standards of the Development Code. An environmental review will be required when a development application is submitted and any potential impacts of that development will be evaluated at that time. There are no identified mineral resource extraction sites in the City, except for oil exploration, drilling and production. One (1) oil well or drill hole is identified on the Oil Fields in Chino Hills Area Figure (8-9) in the General Plan as being located within the project site designated as PD 13-165. As the project does not include any physical development and as the new zoning designation, R-A, allows oil exploration and drilling as a conditionally permitted use, the project will not have any impact on mineral resources. Checklist Item Xl. Noise. a-f No Impact(Exceed Noise Standards, Groundborne Vibration, Ambient Noise Levels, Temporary Noise Levels, Airport Noise, Private Airstrip). The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City-wide. Development proposed in the future will be required to submit an application to the City, which will be reviewed for conformance As such, the project will not create any direct noise impacts. Additionally, all development projects in the City are required to comply with the noise standards in the City of Chino Hills General Plan as implemented by the Development Code. An environmental review will be required when a development application is submitted and any potential noise impacts of that development will be evaluated at that time. Initial Study— 09ZCO1 and 09DCA01 Page 26 October 28, 2009 p 5 7 Checklist Item XII. Population and Housing. a-b No Impact(Population Growth, Displace Housing). The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. While the proposed zone change will result in a potential net increase of twenty-nine (29) dwelling units, the new zoning designation is consistent with Land Use Element of the General Plan and, therefore, will not induce population growth beyond the population envisioned by the General Plan. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City- wide. The project sites are currently undeveloped. As such, the project will not induce population growth or cause the displacement.of existing housing. Development proposed in the future will be required to submit an application to the City, which will be reviewed for conformance with the design guidelines and development standards of the Development Code. An environmental review will be required when a development application is submitted and any potential impacts of that development will be evaluated at that time. Checklist Item XIII. Public Services. a-e No Impact(Fire Services, Police Services, Schools, Parks, Other Public Facilities). The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City-wide. Development proposed in the future will be required to submit an application to the City, which will be reviewed for conformance with the design guidelines and development standards of the Development Code, An environmental review will be required when a development application is submitted and any potential impacts to public services and facilities of that development will be evaluated at that time. Initial Study—09ZCD1 and 09DCA01 Page 27 October 28, 2009 P58 Checklist Item XIV. Recreation a-b. No Impact(Existing Facilities, New or Altered Facilities). The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City-wide. Development proposed in the future will be required to submit an application to the City, which will be reviewed for conformance with the design guidelines and development standards of the Development Code. An environmental review will be required when a development application is submitted and any potential impacts to existing recreational facilities or the impact of proposed facilities for that development will be evaluated at that time. Checklist Item XV. Transportation/Traffic. a-g No Impact(Roadway Capacity and Level of Service, Congestion Management Program, Air Traffic Patterns, Roadway Design, Emergency Access, Parking, Alternative Transportation The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S), The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. While the proposed zone change will result in a potential net increase of twenty-nine (29) dwelling units (from the number of units permitted by the expired planned developments), the new zoning designation is consistent with Land Use Element of the General Plan and, therefore, will not cause an increase in traffic beyond that envisioned by the General Plan. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City- wide. As the project does not propose to change or intensify the use of the project sites beyond the uses and intensities designated in the City's General Plan, no impacts to transportation programs and infrastructure will be caused by the project. Development proposed in the future will be required to submit an application to the City, which will be reviewed for conformance with the design guidelines and development standards of the Development Code, An environmental review will be required when a development application is submitted and any potential traffic and transportation impacts of that development will be evaluated at that time. Initial Study—09ZC01 and 09DCA01 Page 28 October 28, 2009 P59 Checklist Item XVI. Utilities and Service Systems. a-g No Impact(RWQCB Wastewater Treatment, New Water and Wastewater Facilities, New Storm-Water Drainage Facilities, Water Supplies, Wastewater, Landfill, Solid Waste). The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan. The utility plans and service systems (i.e. Water Master Plan, Sewer Master Plan, etc.) were developed using the General Plan to anticipate future development and densities;as the project is proposed to ensure consistency with the General Plan, the project will not negatively impact utilities and service systems. The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the _ City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and would be effective City-wide. As such, the project does not directly create a demand for new utility service or the construction of new facilities. All projects in the City are required to comply with mandatory requirements for utility service as required by the City or an agency that provides utility services (i.e. Inland Empire Utility Agency, SCE, Southern California Gas Company etc.). Development proposed in the future will be required to submit an application to the City, which will be reviewed for conformance with the design guidelines and development standards of the Development Code. 'An environmental review will be required when a development application is submitted and any potential impacts on utility and service systems of that development will be evaluated at that time. Checklist item XVII. Mandatory Findings of Significance a. No Impact(Environment and Habitat). Based on the analysis contained in this Initial Study, project will not cause any significant impacts to Aesthetics, Agriculture Resources, Air Quality, Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, Geology/Soils, Hydrology/Water Quality, Land Use and Planning, Mineral Resources, Noise, Population/Housing, Public Services, Recreation, Transportation/Traffic, and Utility/Services Systems. Therefore the Project will not degrade the quality of the environment and no habitat, wildlife populations, and plant and animal communities would be impacted. The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential (R-R) and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally, the zoning of an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be changed to Low Density Residential (R-S). The project does not include any development of these sites and will ensure that the future development and use of these properties are consistent with the goals, policies and intent of the General Plan, The proposed development code amendment would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size, which would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project and Initial Study—09ZC01 and 09DCA01 Page 29 October 28, 2009 P60 would be effective City-wide. Development proposed in the future will be required to submit an application to the City, which will be reviewed for conformance with the design guidelines and development standards of the Development Code, An environmental review will be required when a development application is submitted and any potential impacts of that development will be evaluated at that time. b. No Impact(Cumulatively Considerable). Based on the analysis contained in this Initial Study, the project will not cause any impacts to the environment and, therefore, will not contribute to any cumulatively considerable impact. Individual projects will be evaluated with respect to cumulatively considerable impacts during project-specific environmental reviews and the environmental analysis conducted for future development projects, c. No Impact(Human Beings). Based on the analysis contained in this Initial Study, the implementation of the project will not cause a direct or indirect adverse Impact to human beings. 8.

Dated at Chino Hills, California, this 29th of October 2009. farr'Gackstetter, Associate Planner P68 PU - LIG HEARING NOTICE & NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT A NEGATIVE DECLARATION NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning Commission of the City of Chino Hills will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, December 1,2009, at 7:00 p.m., in the Council Chambers of the City Hall, 14000 City Center Drive, Chino Hills, CA,to consider the following project. CASE NO.: Zone Change 09ZCO1 and Development Code Amendment 09DCA01 APPLICANT: City-initiated project PROPOSAL: The proposed project will change the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153 and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch (R-A), Rural Residential(R-R)and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally, an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be designated as Low Density Residential(R-S). The preliminary development plans for PD 13-165 and PD 19-163 have expired without the approval of a final development plan;therefore,the development standards proposed within these documents are now void. PD 17-153 does not provide development standards to guide the development of the site. Changing the zoning designation of these properties will provide conformity between the City's General Plan Land Use Element and the City's Zoning Map and will provide standards for the future development of these sites. This project does not propose any physical development of these sites and will not result in the intensification of any future development or use beyond the uses and intensities designated in the City's General Plan. (Please see the Vicinity Map on the reverse side of this notice.) Additionally, an amendment to Chapter 16.64 of the City's Development Code is proposed,which would reduce or eliminate the minimum project size(currently,twenty acres)required for the adoption of a specific plan. Reducing or eliminating the minimum project size would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals.

Fleager, City Manager e SUBJECT: PLANNING COMMISSION ACTION REGARDING AGENDA ITEM 7A— NEGATIVE DECLARATION, ZONE CHANGE 09ZC01, AND DEVELOPMENT CODE AMENDMENT 09DCA04 s' At their meeting of December 1, 2009, the Planning Commission received a report ck,cfrom City staff regarding the above-mentioned item, a request from the City to consider and make a recommendation to the City Council concerning a proposal to establish the zoning of the properties within three (3) expired or inadequately- documented planned developments in the Carbon Canyon area. Planned i ' developments PD 13-165 and PD 19-163 have expired and the City is proposing to designate these areas as Agriculture-Ranch (R-A) consistent with the General Plan, as required by state law. Additionally, a small parcel within PD 13-165 that is located north of Carbon Canyon Road is proposed to be designated as Low Density Residential (R-S) to provide consistency with the General Plan. PD 17-153 does not provide development standards for the properties within the planned development; therefore, the City proposes to designate this property as Rural Residential (R-R) as shown in the General Plan. Additionally, a development code amendment is proposed to reduce the minimum project size required for the adoption of a specific plan from twenty (20) acres to five (5) acres. There were no requests to speak regarding this item. The Planning Commission inquired about staffs reasons for suggesting a new minimum project size for the adoption of a specific plan. Staff explained that the proposed reduction in the minimum project size would provide greater flexibility to respond to the increasingly constrained nature of the sites remaining to be developed in the City and provide a tool to address recent state legislation requiring the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through the integration of land use and transportation planning. The Planning Commission instructed staff to prepare exhibits showing the properties that would be eligible for the adoption of a specific plan under the current twenty (20) acre minimum project size and those that would be eligible if the minimum size was reduced to five (5) acres. The Planning Commission continued the project to the December 15, 2009, Planning Commission hearing by a unanimous vote, 5-0.

CASE NO.: Zone Change 09ZCO1 and Development Code Amendment 09DCA04 APPLICANT: City-initiated project PROPOSAL: The proposed project will establish the zoning designation of the properties within Planned Developments PD 13-165, PD 17-153, and PD 19-163 to Agriculture-Ranch(R-A), Rural Residential(R-R)and R-A zones, respectively. Additionally,an approximately 6.3-acre parcel within PD 13-165 will be designated as Low Density Residential(R-S). The preliminary development plans for PD 13-165 and PD 19-163 have expired without the approval of a final development plan;therefore,the development standards proposed within these documents are now void. PD 17-153 does not provide development standards to guide the development of the site. Changing the zoning designation of these properties will provide conformity between the City's General Plan Land Use Element and the City's Zoning Map and will provide standards for the future development of these sites, as required by State law. This project does not propose any physical development of these sites and will not result in the intensification of any future development or use beyond the uses and intensities designated in the City's General Plan. (Please see the Vicinity Map on the reverse side of this notice.) Development Code Amendment 09DCA04 would amend Development Code Chapter 16.64 Specific Plan Adoption and Amendment by reducing the minimum project size for the adoption of specific plans to five(5) acres. This would provide greater opportunities for the City and property owners to address environmental and other constraints in future development proposals. The proposed amendment is not associated with any particular project, but is being proposed in response to a perceived need for greater flexibility in the future development of properties within the City. Any future development proposals will be required to submit an application to the City,which will be reviewed for conformance with the design guidelines and development standards of the Development Code,assessed for environmental impacts,and reviewed at a public hearing. LOCATION: The zone change affects three(3) sites in the City(see the Vicinity Map)and the development code amendment is effective city-wide APN: PD 13-165: 1000-511-339, 1000-511-38, 1000-162-65, 1017-403-10 and 1033-012-16 PD 17-153: 1031-011-02 and 1031-011-49 PD 19-163: 1017-261-24 ENVIRONMENTAL An Initial Study/Negative Declaration have been prepared for the project in compliance with the REVIEW: California Environmental Quality Act(CEQA),Section 15070 and the City of Chino Hills Procedures for implementing CEQA, and is recommended for approval as the proposed project will not cause any adverse impacts to the environment.
