Regarding density, the zone allows a density up to 50 dwelling units to the acre. The proposed 747 <br />total units equates to 43 dwelling units to the acre. Site 1 is 17.4 total acres and would allow up to 870 <br />units. The Code considers density be applied to the full site rather than separate portions when a <br />project provides for a fully integrated mixed use project. This means, when a project is designed to <br />horizontally or vertically incorporate residential and nonresidential uses, density is applied to the <br />entire site and can be considered at the higher end of the range. <br />SCHOOL IMPACTS: The proposed project will create impacts to the Brea Olinda School District. <br />Clarification/Information – The Brea Olinda School District has stated new students anticipated from <br />the proposed Hines project can be accommodated. Data was shared with the Commission from a <br />speaker at the February hearing and an email from the District is attached to this report for the <br />Commission’s reference. School Districts operate under the authority of the State rather than local <br />government and California Government Code limits cities abilities to impose mitigation upon <br />development projects relating to any impacts to schools. <br />WATER SUPPLY: This project will impact the City’s water supply. <br />Clarification/Information –The 2003 General Plan Update and its EIR considered water impacts for <br />development assumptions under the proposed land use policies for the entire City as well as our <br />unincorporated sphere-of-influence areas. The EIR Addendum additionally reviewed the current water <br />demand and supply and serves to update findings from the 2003 General Plan EIR. In summary, the <br />analysis found the City’s Urban Water Master Plan (UWMP) remains viable and documents the City’s <br />projected potable water demand and supply, including accommodating projected development such <br />as the Brea Place project. <br />Importantly, while water supplies have been found adequate to serve the project, this is not to suggest <br />water conservation isn’t important. Our State will continue to face water supply challenges going <br />forward. Any approved project will be held to the new and updated building and plumbing codes <br />adopted by the City of Brea within the 2016 California Green Standards as well as the County Model <br />Water Ordinance adopted by the City to manage landscaping and irrigation on commercial and <br />residential projects. Key standards serve water conservation goals and to further reduce the demand <br />on our water supply statewide. <br />POLICE AND FIRE SERVICES: This project will impact our Police and Fire services. <br />Clarification/Information – The 2003 General Plan EIR and the subsequent EIR Addendum prepared <br />for the proposed Hines project identified that development would place additional demands upon <br />Police and Fire resources. Both Departments routinely manage resources and work programs to <br />assure appropriate levels of service will be maintained for current development and residents together <br />with any new development demands. The City has also adopted and implemented a Nexus Fee <br />Program that requires all new development to pay its pro-rata share toward Fire Department related <br />impacts and costs of providing additional facilities, equipment, etc. to serve the community. In <br />summary, the proposed project would not exceed the buildout projections of population or overall <br />housing units identified in the General Plan such that a significantly increased need for police or fire <br />services would occur. <br /> <br />AIR QUALITY: There is a CO “hotspot” at Lambert and State College. <br /> <br />Clarification/Information – Car bon monoxide (CO) emissions are a function of vehicle idling time, <br />meteorological conditions, and traffic flow. Under certain extreme meteorological conditions, CO <br />concentrations near a congested roadway or intersection may reach unhealthful levels. The South <br />Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) requires a quantified assessment of CO “hotspots” <br />when a project increases the volume-to-capacity ratio (also called the intersection capacity utilization)
