NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING CITY OF RIO VISTA

PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning Commission of the City of Rio Vista will consider a recommendation to the City Council to extend the term of a previously approved Development Agreement by and between the City of Rio Vista and Encore Liberty II LLC for the Brann Ranch at its Regular Meeting on October 13, 2021, at 6:00 p.m., in the City Hall Council Chambers, 1 Main Street, Rio Vista, CA.

Project Title: Brann Ranch Development Agreement
Lead Agency Name and Address: City of Rio Vista
1 Main Street
Rio Vista, Ca 94571
Contact Person and Phone Number: Rob Hickey, City Manager (707) 374-6451 Ext. 1101
Project Location: 31 Richard Brann Road, Rio Vista, CA 94571
(APN: 0178-230-100)

Project Sponsor’s Name and Address: Glen Martin
1600 South Main Street
Walnut Creek, CA 94596

General Plan Designation: Neighborhood Residential (NR) and Neighborhood Service/Mixed Use (NS/MXD)
Zoning: Residential Low Density (R-1)

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW:
The California Environmental Quality Act (Section 21000, et seq. of the California Public Resources Code, hereafter “CEQA”) requires analysis of agency approvals of discretionary “projects.” The project was previously analyzed in an Environmental Impact Report (“EIR”) certified by the City Council on April 19, 1990, and also subsequently analyzed in the City’s 2001 General Plan EIR. Once an EIR has been prepared for a project, a supplemental or subsequent EIR is only required when new information or changes to the project will cause new significant impacts. (See Pub. Resources Code, § 21166.) An up-to two-year extension of the Development Agreement without changing any terms or conditions of the actual construction and development plans does not meet that threshold, therefore, no further CEQA review is needed.

NOTE TO ALL INTERESTED PARTIES: This meeting will be held via teleconference only pursuant to Government Code section 54953(e) to protect attendee health and safety. All requisite opportunities for and protections to public access and public comment shall be provided, as required by that section and the Brown Act, Government Code section 54950 et seq. Public access is available via livestream through a link and instructions included in the Planning Commission agenda at: https://www.riovistacity.com/meeting-agenda-minutes/.
The Planning Commission will accept oral and written comments. Oral comments may be given during the meeting by following the instructions on the Planning Commission agenda at: https://www.riovistacity.com/meeting-agenda-minutes/. Written comments may be submitted via email to: pcpubliccomments@ci.rio-vista.ca.us. Please provide the agenda item number in the subject line of your email or letter.
