CITY OF CHINO HILLS Ray rq uez Mayor ATTEST: Cheryl Balz City Clerk APPROVED AS TO FORM: H Mark D. Hensley City Attorney PLACEWORKS, INC. (Signature) ?rmc-'kooj (Title) -16- tern rlt_j (Title) EXHIBIT A Scope of Work It is anticipated that all potential environmental project impacts can be mitigated to a less than significant level. The following scope includes completion of each step of CEQA processing and IS/MND preparation, including technical studies, to ensure compliance with CEQA and legal defensibility. The Initial Study will include the following: » Introduction • Project Location • Environmental Setting • Project Description . • Existing Zoning and General Plan • City Action Requested » Environmental Checklist • Background • Environmental Factors Potentially Affected • Evaluation of Environmental Impacts » Environmental Analysis • Aesthetics • Air Quality • Agriculture and Forestry Resources • Biological Resources • Cultural Resources • Geology and Soils • Greenhouse Gas (GHG) • Hazards and Hazardous Materials • Hydrology and Water Quality • Land Use and Planning • Mineral Resources • Noise • Population and Housing • Public Services • Recreation • Traffic and Circulation • Tribal Cultural Resources • Utilities and Service Systems • Mandatory Findings of Significance (including energy impacts) » References » List of Preparers Our scope of work assumes that the City will provide the following applicant -team prepared materials and technical studies at Notice to Proceed: • Preliminary grading plan, • Preliminary hydrology report and hydraulic calculations, Page 1 of 7 • Preliminary water quality management plan, • Traffic Impact Analysis, • Geotechnical investigation report TASK 1. IN-HOUSE TECHNICAL STUDIES PREPARATION PlaceWorks' technical staff will prepare the following technical studies for the proposed project. The environmental analysis will be completed in compliance with the CEQA Guidelines and the City's adopted CEQA checklist. Analytical approaches to major environmental issues associated with the proposed project are described below. Task 1.1 Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Emissions PlaceWorks will prepare an air quality and greenhouse (GHG) emissions analysis to evaluate potential impacts from the construction and operation of the Starbucks project The analysis will be consistent with the current methodology of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). Modeling of criteria air pollutant emissions and GHG emissions will be conducted using the California Emissions Estimator Model (CalEEMod). The results of the analysis will be summarized in the IS/MND and modeling included as an appendix. Construction Phase PlaceWorks will estimate the increase in short-term criteria air pollutant emissions from demolition of the existing pavements and construction of the new Starbucks with drive- through. The construction -phase regional emissions inventory will be based on the construction schedule, including duration for each construction subphase, anticipated equipment for each subphase, and estimated demolition volumes and earthwork (if applicable), as provided by the client. Where information is unavailable, PlaceWorks will use CaIEEMod defaults, as appropriate, and work with the client to develop the construction assumptions. Project -related construction emissions will be compared to the SCAQMD regional significance thresholds for construction. Localized air pollution impacts from construction equipment exhaust and fugitive dust will be compared to SCAQMD's screening -level localized significance thresholds (LST) for their potential to elevate concentrations of air pollutants at the adjacent residential land uses surrounding the project site. Operation Phase Criteria air pollutant and GHG emissions will be quantified from project -related transportation sources, area sources (i.e., architectural coatings and consumer products), energy sources (i.e., natural gas consumption, energy use), water use and wastewater generation, and solid waste disposal. Total emissions from construction activities will be amortized into the GHG emissions inventory. Criteria air pollutant and GHG emissions will be compared to the SCAQMD's significance thresholds. GHG Plan Consistency The GHG section will discuss the GHG reduction goals of Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32), Senate Bill 32 (SB 32), and SB 375. To achieve the GHG reduction targets of AB 32, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) prepared the 2008 Scoping Plan and a Page 2 of 7 2014 update and recently released a draft of the 2017 Climate Change Scoping Plan Update to achieve the SB 32 reduction target. In addition, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) has adopted a regional transportation plan/sustainable communities strategy (2016-2040 RTP/SCS) to ensure that the southern California region can attain the regional transportation -related GHG reduction goals of SB 375. Additionally, the City of Chino Hills adopted a Climate Action Plan in 2013 to achieve a 15 percent below 2008 levels by 2020. Project consistency with these statewide, regional, and local GHG emissions reduction strategies will be reviewed. Other Areas of Impact The South Coast Air Basin (SoCAB) is currently designated nonattainment under the National and/or California ambient air quality standards (AAQS) for ozone (03), fine inhalable particulate matter (PM2.5), coarse inhalable particulate matter (PM10), and lead (Los Angeles County only). The SCAQMD has adopted air quality management plans (AQMPs) to ensure the SoCAB can attain the long-term National and California AAQS. The analysis will include a consistency evaluation of the project's regional emissions to SCAQMD's AQMP. Furthermore, the SoCAB has been designated in attainment for carbon monoxide (CO) under both the California and National AAQS; and therefore, the air quality analysis will include only a qualitative assessment of CO hotspots. It will also include a qualitative assessment of potential odor generation and impacts. Deliverable(s): • Air Quality and GHG Analysis; modeling data in an appendix to the IS/MND. Task 1.2 Noise Analysis PlaceWorks will evaluate potential noise and vibration impacts for the construction and operational phases of the proposed new Starbucks to support the IS/MND. PlaceWorks will assess existing conditions and identify the nearest sensitive receptors and other pertinent environmental characteristics; based on our experience and knowledge of similar noise environments, noise levels due to traffic flows, aerial photography, site plans, and previously collected data on drive-thru noise levels. Thus, no field measurements of ambient noise levels are needed for this study. The proposed project site is within a commercial and residential area. PlaceWorks will assess temporary noise and vibration impacts during site preparation and project construction activities using industry standard analysis techniques and using scheduling, equipment mix, hauling, and truck trip information as provided by the project applicant (or their contractor). Since the site is generally level, construction will not require significant grading. Still, for construction -related noise and vibration, grading activities will be the primary concern in terms of impacts to sensitive receptors (since the grading phase typically requires the largest/heaviest construction equipment). It is assumed that no pile driving and no subterranean facilities will be needed. Page 3 of 7 Long-term, operational noise impacts will be primarily related to project -generated traffic flows. Traffic noise impacts to uses along nearby roadway segments will be calculated using input parameters based on forecasts included in the project's traffic study (the traffic consultant will be selected by the City). Given that the project will be an addition to an existing shopping center and will be located on a busy thoroughfare, notable increases in traffic flows are not anticipated. Thus, detailed traffic noise modeling is not needed. Other, on-going noise sources at the site (such as HVAC units, drive-through audio systems, maintenance activities, parking lot activity, and periodic truck movements) are expected to be of secondary importance to the traffic impacts and will be discussed qualitatively. The nearest sensitive receptors are approximately 325 feet to the east. Potential noise and vibration impacts will be evaluated according to applicable City of Chino Hills noise and vibration criteria included in the City's General Plan and Municipal Code. Mitigation measures to reduce noise and vibration impacts will be recommended, as necessary, to reduce potential impacts to less than significant levels. The findings of the technical analyses and impact assessment will be provided in the noise and vibration section of appropriate CEQA documentation for the project. Pertinent calculations and technical information will be provided in an Appendix. Deliverable(s): • Noise Analysis; technical data in an appendix to the IS/MND. Task 1.3 Native American Consultation Invitations PlaceWorks will request a Sacred Lands File search from the Native American Heritage Commission. PlaceWorks will ask the City of Chino Hills for contact information for representatives of any Native American tribes that have requested consultation with the City under Assembly Bill 52, and send invitations for consultation to any such representatives. If the tribes request consultation, the City must initiate this consultation within 30 days. We assume City staff will conduct the consultation. Deliverable(s): • Invitations for consultation to any representatives of any Native American tribes that have requested consultation with City. TASK 2. PRELIMINARY INITIAL STUDY PlaceWorks will prepare an Initial Study that will support the adoption of an MND under CEQA. The Initial Study will address each of the environmental topics in the CEQA Guidelines checklist: » Aesthetics » Agriculture/Forestry Resources » Air Quality » Biological Resources „ » Cultural Resources » Geology/Soils » Greenhouse Gas Emissions » Hazards/Hazardous Materials » HydrologyNVater Quality » Land Use Planning » Mineral Resources » NoiseNibration Page 4 of 7 Population/Housing » Transportation/Traffic Public Services » Tribal Cultural Resources » Recreation » Utilities/Service Systems Responses for all items in the checklist will explain the basis for the determination of No Impact, Less Than Significant Impact, or Less Than Significant with Mitigation Incorporated. The Initial Study will include the necessary PlaceWorks technical studies (air quality/GHG assessment, noise analysis, and cultural records search) and incorporate the project applicant's technical studies (preliminary grading plan, preliminary hydrology report and hydraulic calculations, preliminary water quality management plan, traffic impact analysis, and geotechnical investigation report). This task also includes a site visit to photo -document conditions onsite. Deliverable(s): • One PDF and five bound copies of Preliminary Draft IS/MND with technical studies) TASK 3. REVISED/DRAFT MND AND INITIAL STUDY Task 3.1 Proofcheck IS/MND PlaceWorks will revise the Preliminary Draft Initial Study text and graphics to incorporate comments received from the City. Our schedule assumes the City will complete review and comment on the Preliminary Initial Study in two weeks. Our cost estimate assumes one iteration of revisions, with no substantive changes to the project description and no additional modeling/analysis. We also assume that the City will combine comments from various departments into one document. The proofcheck IS/MND will include technical studies and documentation of responses to City staff comments, including how and where staff comments have been addressed. The proofcheck document will be submitted electronically and in track changes. Task 3.2 Mitigation Monitoring Program Once the mitigation measures are finalized, PlaceWorks will prepare a Mitigation Monitoring Program (MMP) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15097. Task 3.3 Notice of Intent and Distribution of Draft IS/MND After the Draft Initial Study is approved by the City for circulation, the Notice of Intent (NOI) to adopt the MND will be prepared. PlaceWorks will distribute the NOI and supporting IS to the responsible agencies and trustee agencies, including but not limited to the agencies distributed through the State Clearinghouse and the county clerk, in accordance with CEQA Guidelines Section 15072(a). PlaceWorks will prepare the two- page summary for the State Clearinghouse required for submission of electronic documents. PlaceWorks will give the City a proof of posting with the county clerk. The City will be responsible for compliance with Section 15072(b)—providing a distribution list of responsible agencies and affected properties owners/occupants and posting the notice in a local newspaper.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments at 213.623.1443 or jcapata@placeworks.com. J n F. Capata Senior Associate 700 S. Flower Street, Suite 600 1 Los Angeles, California 90017 1 213.623.1443 1 PlaceWorks.com May 1, 2017 Aaron Lobliner Contract Planner City of Chino Hills Community Development Department 14000 City Center Drive Chino Hills, CA 91710 Subject: Proposal to Prepare Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration for Woodview Plaza Starbucks in the City of Chino Hills (P2017 -0428S) Dear Mr. Lobliner: Thank you for the opportunity to submit this proposal to complete the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) documentation for the proposed Starbucks at the existing Woodview Plaza located at 4191 Chino Hills Parkway in the city of Chino Hills. This proposal outlines our understanding of the project, our approach and scope of work, the proposed schedule, and our fee estimate. After review of the proposed project, it appears that a mitigated negative declaration (MND) is the appropriate CEQA documentation for the project. However, if during our analysis, we discover that any potential impacts cannot be mitigated to a less than significant level, we will inform the City and are available to prepare an environmental impact report (EIR) under separate contract. Julian Capata, Senior Associate at PlaceWorks is proposed as our Project Manager for this project to be supported by Frances Ho, as Assistant Project Manager. JoAnn Hadfield will function as Principal in Charge and will review final documents. As detailed in our qualifications, in addition to our CEQA experts, we have in-house, credentialed specialists to complete the air quality/GHG and noise studies for the project, as well as peer review the applicant -consultant prepared traffic, geotechnical and hydrology studies. The environmental team will be supported by our in-house graphics, technical editing, and clerical staff. Understanding of the Project The proposed project would be developed within the existing Woodview Plaza commercial center, located along the southeast intersection of Chino Hills Parkway and Pipeline Avenue. The proposed project site is located along the northeastern portion of the approximately 7.58 acre Woodview Plaza, in an area that is currently occupied by surface parking and landscaping. The proposed Starbucks would be 3,000 square feet and would include a drive-through que for up to nine vehicles, and an outdoor seating area. The project site is surrounded by commercial development to the north, high density residential uses to the south and west, and single-family residential uses to the west. The project site has a General Plan designation of Commercial, and is zoned Planned Development (41-149). The proposed project is consistent with the General Plan designation, but would require Site Plan Review approval. Scope of Work It is anticipated that all potential environmental project impacts can be mitigated to a less than significant level. The following scope includes completion of each step of CEQA processing and IS/MND preparation, including technical studies, to ensure compliance with CEQA and legal defensibility. 3 MacArthur Place, Suite 1100 1 Santa Ana, California 92707 1 714.966.9220 1 PlaceWorks.corn a The Initial Study will include the following: » Introduction • Project Location • Environmental Setting • Project Description • Existing Zoning and General Plan • City Action Requested » Environmental Checklist • Background • Environmental Factors Potentially Affected • Evaluation of Environmental Impacts » Environmental Analysis • Aesthetics • Air Quality • Agriculture and Forestry Resources • Biological Resources • Cultural Resources • Geology and Soils • Greenhouse Gas (GHG) • Hazards and Hazardous Materials • Hydrology and Water Quality • Land Use and Planning • Mineral Resources • Noise • Population and Housing • Public Services • Recreation • Traffic and Circulation • Tribal Cultural Resources • Utilities and Service Systems • Mandatory Findings of Significance (including energy impacts) » References » List of Preparers Our scope of work assumes that the City will provide the following applicant -team prepared materials and technical studies at Notice to Proceed: • Preliminary grading plan, • Preliminary hydrology report and hydraulic calculations, • Preliminary water quality management plan, • Traffic Impact Analysis, • Geotechnical investigation report May 1, 2017 1 Page 2 TASK 1. IN-HOUSE TECHNICAL STUDIES PREPARATION PlaceWorks' technical staff will prepare the following technical studies for the proposed project. The environmental analysis will be completed in compliance with the CEQA Guidelines and the City's adopted CEQA checklist. Analytical approaches to major environmental issues associated with the proposed project are described below. Task 1.1 Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Emissions PlaceWorks will prepare an air quality and greenhouse (GHG) emissions analysis to evaluate potential impacts from the construction and operation of the Starbucks project. The analysis will be consistent with the current methodology of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). Modeling of criteria air pollutant emissions and GHG emissions will be conducted using the California Emissions Estimator Model (CalEEMod). The results of the analysis will be summarized in the IS/MND and modeling included as an appendix. Construction Phase PlaceWorks will estimate the increase in short-term criteria air pollutant emissions from demolition of the existing pavements and construction of the new Starbucks with drive-through. The construction -phase regional emissions inventory will be based on the construction schedule, including duration for each construction subphase, anticipated equipment for each subphase, and estimated demolition volumes and earthwork (if applicable), as provided by the client. Where information is unavailable, PlaceWorks will use CaIEEMod defaults, as appropriate, and work with the client to develop the construction assumptions. Project -related construction emissions will be compared to the SCAQMD regional significance thresholds for construction. Localized air pollution impacts from construction equipment exhaust and fugitive dust will be compared to SCAQMD's screening -level localized significance thresholds (LST) for their potential to elevate concentrations of air pollutants at the adjacent residential land uses surrounding the project site. Operation Phase Criteria air pollutant and GHG emissions will be quantified from project -related transportation sources, area sources (i.e., architectural coatings and consumer products), energy sources (i.e., natural gas consumption, energy use), water use and wastewater generation, and solid waste disposal. Total emissions from construction activities will be amortized into the GHG emissions inventory. Criteria air pollutant and GHG emissions will be compared to the SCAQMD's significance thresholds. GHG Plan Consistency The GHG section will discuss the GHG reduction goals of Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32), Senate Bill 32 (SB 32), and SB 375. To achieve the GHG reduction targets of AB 32, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) prepared the 2008 Scoping Plan and a 2014 update and recently released a draft of the 2017 Climate Change Scoping Plan Update to achieve the SB 32 reduction target. In addition, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) has adopted a regional transportation plan/sustainable communities strategy (2016-2040 RTP/SCS) to ensure that the southern California region can attain the regional transportation -related GHG reduction goals of SB 375. Additionally, the City of Chino Hills adopted a Climate Action Plan in 2013 to achieve a 15 percent below 2008 levels by 2020. Project consistency with these statewide, regional, and local GHG emissions reduction strategies will be reviewed. Other Areas of Impact The South Coast Air Basin (SoCAB) is currently designated nonattainment under the National and/or California ambient air quality standards (AAQS) for ozone (03), fine inhalable particulate matter (PM2.5), coarse inhalable particulate matter (PM10), and lead (Los Angeles County only). The SCAQMD has adopted air quality management plans (AQMPs) to ensure the SoCAB can attain the long-term National and May 1, 2017 1 Page 3 California AAQS. The analysis will include a consistency evaluation of the project's regional emissions to SCAQMD's AQMP. Furthermore, the SoCAB has been designated in attainment for carbon monoxide (CO) under both the California and National AAQS; and therefore, the air quality analysis will include only a qualitative assessment of CO hotspots. It will also include a qualitative assessment of potential odor generation and impacts. Deliverable(s): • Air Quality and GHG Analysis; modeling data in an appendix to the IS/MND. Task 1.2 Noise Analysis PlaceWorks will evaluate potential noise and vibration impacts for the construction and operational phases of the proposed new Starbucks to support the IS/MND. PlaceWorks will assess existing conditions and identify the nearest sensitive receptors and other pertinent environmental characteristics; based on our experience and knowledge of similar noise environments, noise levels due to traffic flows, aerial photography, site plans, and previously collected data on drive-thru noise levels. Thus, no field measurements of ambient noise levels are needed for this study. The proposed project site is within a commercial and residential area. PlaceWorks will assess temporary noise and vibration impacts during site preparation and project construction activities using industry - standard analysis techniques and using scheduling, equipment mix, hauling, and truck trip information as provided by the project applicant (or their contractor). Since the site is generally level, construction will not require significant grading. Still, for construction -related noise and vibration, grading activities will be the primary concern in terms of impacts to sensitive receptors (since the grading phase typically requires the largest/heaviest construction equipment). It is assumed that no pile driving and no subterranean facilities will be needed. Long-term, operational noise impacts will be primarily related to project -generated traffic flows. Traffic noise impacts to uses along nearby roadway segments will be calculated using input parameters based on forecasts included in the project's traffic study (the traffic consultant will be selected by the City). Given that the project will be an addition to an existing shopping center and will be located on a busy thoroughfare, notable increases in traffic flows are not anticipated. Thus, detailed traffic noise modeling is not needed. Other, on-going noise sources at the site (such as HVAC units, drive-through audio systems, maintenance activities, parking lot activity, and periodic truck movements) are expected to be of secondary importance to the traffic impacts and will be discussed qualitatively. The nearest sensitive receptors are approximately 325 feet to the east. Potential noise and vibration impacts will be evaluated according to applicable City of Chino Hills noise and vibration criteria included in the City's General Plan and Municipal Code. Mitigation measures to reduce noise and vibration impacts will be recommended, as necessary, to reduce potential impacts to less than significant levels. The findings of the technical analyses and impact assessment will be provided in the noise and vibration section of appropriate CEQA documentation for the project. Pertinent calculations and technical information will be provided in an Appendix. Deliverable(s): • Noise Analysis; technical data in an appendix to the IS/MND. May 1, 2017 1 Page 4 1 Task 1.3 Native American Consultation Invitations PlaceWorks will request a Sacred Lands File search from the Native American Heritage Commission. PlaceWorks will ask the City of Chino Hills for contact information for representatives of any Native American tribes that have requested consultation with the City under Assembly Bill 52, and send invitations for consultation to any such representatives. If the tribes request consultation, the City must initiate this consultation within 30 days. We assume City staff will conduct the consultation. Deliverable(s): • Invitations for consultation to any representatives of any Native American tribes that have requested consultation with City. TASK 2. PRELIMINARY INITIAL STUDY PlaceWorks will prepare an Initial Study that will support the adoption of an MND under CEQA. The Initial Study will address each of the environmental topics in the CEQA Guidelines checklist: Aesthetics » Agriculture/Forestry Resources Air Quality Biological Resources Cultural Resources » Geology/Soils » Greenhouse Gas Emissions » Hazards/Hazardous Materials » Hydrology/Water Quality » Land Use Planning Mineral Resources Noise/Vibration » Population/Housing » Public Services Recreation Transportation/Traffic » Tribal Cultural Resources » Utilities/Service Systems Responses for all items in the checklist will explain the basis for the determination of No Impact, Less Than Significant Impact, or Less Than Significant with Mitigation Incorporated. The Initial Study will include the necessary PlaceWorks technical studies (air quality/GHG assessment, noise analysis, and cultural records search) and incorporate the project applicant's technical studies (preliminary grading plan, preliminary hydrology report and hydraulic calculations, preliminary water quality management plan, traffic impact analysis, and geotechnical investigation report). This task also includes a site visit to photo -document conditions onsite. Deliverable(s) • One PDF and five bound copies of Preliminary Draft IS/MND with technical studies) TASK 3. REVISED/DRAFT MND AND INITIAL STUDY Task 3.1 Proofcheck IS/MND PlaceWorks will revise the Preliminary Draft Initial Study text and graphics to incorporate comments received from the City. Our schedule assumes the City will complete review and comment on the Preliminary Initial Study in two weeks. Our cost estimate assumes one iteration of revisions, with no substantive changes to the project description and no additional modeling/analysis. We also assume that the City will combine comments from various departments into one document. The proofcheck IS/MND will include technical studies and documentation of responses to City staff comments, including how and May 1, 2017 1 Page 5 � 81 where staff comments have been addressed. The proofcheck document will be submitted electronically and in track changes. Task 3.2 Mitigation Monitoring Program Once the mitigation measures are finalized, PlaceWorks will prepare a Mitigation Monitoring Program (MMP) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15097. Task 3.3 Notice of Intent and Distribution of Draft IS/MND After the Draft Initial Study is approved by the City for circulation, the Notice of Intent (NOI) to adopt the MND will be prepared. PlaceWorks will distribute the NOI and supporting IS to the responsible agencies and trustee agencies, including but not limited to the agencies distributed through the State Clearinghouse and the county clerk, in accordance with CEQA Guidelines Section 15072(a). PlaceWorks will prepare the two-page summary for the State Clearinghouse required for submission of electronic documents. PlaceWorks will give the City a proof of posting with the county clerk. The City will be responsible for compliance with Section 15072(b)—providing a distribution list of responsible agencies and affected properties owners/occupants and posting the notice in a local newspaper. Deliverables: • Proofcheck IS/MND in track changes format (1 electronic copy with technical studies) • Response to City Comment Document • Public Review Draft IS/MND (One PDF copy, one unbound copy, 21 bound copies and 15 CD copies of the Public Review Draft IS/MND and technical studies) • NOI Distribution to Responsible Agencies and Interested Parties • Mitigation Monitoring Program TASK 4. RESPONSES TO COMMENTS/FINAL MND/NOTICE OF DETERMINATION Task 4.1: Responses to Comments/Final MND Although not required by CEQA, PlaceWorks' standard practice and recommendation is to respond to all environmental comments on the MND/IS. The response to comment document will consist of copies of all comment letters plus written responses. Responses will focus on comments that address the adequacy of the MND/IS. Comments that do not address MND adequacy will be noted as such and no further response will be provided. If an unexpectedly large volume of comments is received, or if certain comments result in the need for substantial response or new research or analysis, the initial budget may not be sufficient. Should this situation become apparent, we will discuss this concern with the City before the responses budget is consumed and determine an appropriate course of action. We have budgeted a maximum of 25 hours for responding to comments. Deliverable(s): • Final IS/MND (One PDF copy, one unbound copy, five bound copies and five CD copies of the Final IS/MND and technical studies) Task 4.2. Notice of Determination After the IS/MND is adopted, PlaceWorks will file the signed Notice of Determination with the County clerk and the State Clearinghouse and provide proof of filing to the City.
